With the support of Arts Tasmania, The Unconformity provides opportunities for artists practising any artform to conduct paid residencies in Queenstown, in remote Western lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia.

The Unconformity Artist in Residence Program provides artists with time and support to research, build relationships and focus on their practice in the provocative West Coast environment.

In 2022, the program was open to three artists based in lutruwita/Tasmania only and 65 applications were received.

We are pleased to announce the successful recipients:

EWAH – A multi-disciplinary artist best known for her work fronting the band EWAH & The Vision of Paradise.

Miriam McGarry – A researcher and writer, interested in built and natural environments.

Gabrielle Rish – An emerging visual artist whose focus is the human-made, including architecture and highly-specialised manufactured objects.

The selected artists will spend up to 2.5 weeks in Queenstown during 2022.

Artists are provided with:

  • $2500 artist fee
  • $500 contribution towards materials
  • Self-contained accommodation
  • Per diems
  • Contribution towards travel expenses
