The Art & the Moving Image initiative is a rare kind of investment in the Australian arts community and sits outside current funding models.
It reflects an ongoing commitment to support the practice, which is emerging at the intersection of film, art and new media. Work previously commissioned for the ADL Film Fest Art and the Moving Image program has gone on to national and international acclaim and the artists involved have found that the time and support a commission allows gives them an invaluable space for their artistic practice. Its expansion to a national partnership of galleries and a film festival offers significant professional bounty, profile, artistic challenge and acknowledgement to the selected artist.
The Art & The Moving Image has been supported by Carriageworks, the Anne and Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia and the University of Western Australia Cultural Precinct.
