An exhibition at RMIT has examined current innovations in art practice through the work of nine recent graduates.
Future strategies from the New Art Alumni, showcased the work of a selection of outstanding 2013 graduates: Matthew Berka, Sue Buchanan, Xanthe Dobbie, Gabriella Foreman-Brown, Harry Hay, Skye Kelly, Bernadette O'Sullivan, Sarah Jones Stubbs and Gabriel Tongue.
Peter Westwood, Studio Coordinator of Honours, and Lecturer in Expanded Studio Practice in the School of Art, curated the exhibition at the RMIT Project Space/ Spare Room Gallery, as a testament to the "fluid" nature of contemporary art, and the response of emerging artists to continual change within the wider world.
"In this environment emerging artists constantly explore new challenges knowing that they must perpetually form new ways of viewing the world," he said.
"With today's young artists entering a world of thriving, borderless creativity, Future strategies from the New Art Alumni emphasised the importance of establishing strategies for engaging with future challenges, where artists emerge through diverse ways of working, across the span of once clearly defined ideas and principles."
The graduates featured in the exhibition have since been selected to take part in a range of group and individual projects within experimental exhibition spaces throughout Melbourne.
Future strategies from the New Art Alumni reflected the divergent theoretical approaches available to emerging artists.
The diverse works featured in the exhibition captured the energy and spirit within emerging contemporary art in Australia today.
