HATCHED 2018 National Graduate Show at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art

  • Phoebe Kelly
In May this year I participated in the Hatched National Graduate Show exhibited at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art. I was fortunate enough to be selected among 29 other recent Australian Fine Art graduates to exhibit my artwork. I spent the week prior to the exhibition at the gallery installing before the opening on Friday the 18th May.
Since 1992, the Hatched National Graduate Show has presented the work of over one thousand artists alongside that of their national peers in this unique showcase of emergent talent. Many of Australia’s most successful artistic careers have been launched this way.
From painting, sculpture and drawing, to installation, video, and sound work, this exhibition offers an intriguing snapshot of current contemporary art practices in Australia.
Hatched is one of the most enduring and fundamental ways that PICA fulfils its mission of supporting innovative new art practices and providing artists with career nurturing opportunities. Hatched tests the pulse of the nation’s emerging arts scene while acting as an important platform for the next generation of Australian artists.
