Submitting as a Premier Artist

Midsumma is seeking Premier Artists to support and lead the Midsumma-curated Visual Arts Program.

Think you've got what it takes to be the feature of the Midsumma curated visual arts program?

The Premier Artist has a body of work that stands out above the rest. As the Premier Artist you will be expected to exhibit a strong body/series of work of outstanding quality, with an excellent and professional finish. The Premier Artists will be selected by the Midsumma Visual Arts Working Group and Midsumma Management, and will show a strong connection, depiction or understanding of the queer culture and arts scene in Melbourne. Relevance to the queer community is important, with the quality and ingenuity shown through the work essential elements of the selection process.

As the Premier Artist, the work in the group exhibition will be chosen to complement your series of work. Your work will have a strong presence both within the exhibition and throughout the festival. So do you think you've got what it takes?
