Exhibition Statement

“Art gives us the ability to explore complex research discoveries in visually interesting and accessible ways. The Vice-Chancellor’s College Visiting Artist Fellows Scheme ensures that a collaborative culture between artists and researchers is alive and well on campus.”

- Professor Brian Schmidt AC - Vice-Chancellor and President, The Australian National University

The Vice-Chancellor’s College Visiting Artist Fellows Scheme (VCCAFS) is an exciting initiative developed in 2012 by The Australian National University to encourage and celebrate interdisciplinary research. Each year, six artists are funded to work collaboratively with researchers across a wide range of disciplines in the ANU Colleges to produce creative and experimental outcomes.

These prestigious Fellowships offer a unique opportunity for creative practitioners to develop practice-led research, robust intellectual dialogue and innovative research methods in the pursuit of creative solutions to real world challenges.

The debut exhibition at PROMPT Gallery at the ANU Pop-Up Village showcases the work of 4 artists who have participated in or are currently a part of the scheme, and demonstrates some of the exceptional ideas and outcomes of practice-lead research and collaboration across the university.

Curated by Anna Trundle and featuring work by Jennifer Robertson, Al Munro, Clem Baker-Finch and Ursula Frederick.

PROMPT Gallery / Projects

PROMPT is a multipurpose gallery and project space at the entrance to the ANU Pop-Up Reunion Village development. The gallery program offers visitors an insight into the trans-disciplinary applications of study and research across the ANU, invites new perspectives on art as a means of communication, and encourages us to consider the identity of the university and its community.
