Going Solo is an annual program that supports the development and exhibition of an exemplary contemporary artist.
In 2019, Going Solo will provide a unique opportunity for a First Nations artist living and working in regional Victoria to produce a significant work or body of works to be exhibited at the Gallery. Working alongside the Gallery’s First Nations Curator, this artist will be supported throughout the development and delivery stages of their proposed exhibition.
Bendigo Art Gallery recognises the important contribution that our First Nations artists are making towards the regional art scene and are committed to fostering and promoting the careers of these artists on a national scale. Going Solo: First Nation highlights the significance of our First Nations artists living and working in regional areas of Victoria.
Going Solo: First Nations 2019 will coincide biennially with the Gallery’s ongoing commitment to Going Solo.
