Emerging and Experimental

The Australia Council for the Arts supports artists to take creative risks and develop new types of artistic expression.

Australian experimental arts explore challenging new concepts in the creation and experience of arts and culture. Artists take new approaches to seeding, creating and presenting art through innovative partnerships and collaborative creative processes.

The projects we fund are highly conceptual, contextual and relational. They play with or invent new forms, methodologies, technologies or explore non-material ideas.

These sometimes include art/science research collaborations, bio art, live art, socially engaged practices and new technologies. They often explore ecology, sustainability, urban renewal, and other cultural issues.

2019 Australia Council Awards recipient

Australia Council Award for Emerging & Experimental Arts: Joyce Hinterding 

Joyce Hinterding’s work explores physical and virtual dynamics. Her practice is based on investigations into energetic forces, through custom built field recording and monitoring technologies. These explorations into acoustic and electromagnetic phenomena have produced large sculptural antenna works, experimental drawings, video and sound-producing installations and experimental audio works for performance. She often collaborates with artist David Haines to produce large scale works that explore the tension between the fictive and the phenomenal. Joyce currently lives in The Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia, her audio work has been released by antiopic and she lectures part-time at Sydney College of the Arts, the University of Sydney.

Joyce Hinterding is represented by Sarah Cottier Gallery.
