    Monash University is delighted to announce that Melbourne artists Stuart Ringholt and Damiano Bertoli have been selected for the Monash University Prato Centre Visual Artist Residency in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

    Awarded annually, the three month long residency offers established and emerging creative practitioners the opportunity to incubate new ideas, undertake research, and engage with local institutions and industry, all from the base of Monash’s Prato Centre. Located just 20km from the centre of Florence, Italy, the Prato Centre is housed in an elegant 18th century palazzo amongst a vibrant community of artists, artisans and galleries.

    Great news for MADA Senior Lecturer Dr Michael Vale – he was recently awarded the $15,000 Acquisitive Art Prize from Bayside City Council for his 2016 oil on linen work “Snow”. Vale’s piece was selected from a group of 37 finalists drawn from over 400 entries from across Australia. Curator Michael Brennan, speaking on behalf of the judging panel said that the work provides an unsettling view into the unconscious. “The viewer is left to find their own place within this complex narrative,” Mr Brennan said.
