Artist-In-Residency Program

World Square collaborates with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art!

In May 2018, World Square and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art launched a new Artist-in-Residency program. This program sees artists occupying vacant space in World Square for three to six months where they will work on developing new work, and engage audiences through advertised public programs.

The first artists participating in this program are Jason Phu and Frances Barrett.

Frances Barrett is a curator and artist, whose interests in live art forms and collaborative processes inform both her curatorial and artistic practice. In 2018 Frances is presenting three new projects: co-facilitating the live performance event, All Ears: A listening party, with Jess Olivieri at Campbelltown Art Centre; co-curating the exhibition and live performance program, Into My Arms, with Toby Chapman at Ace Open; and exhibiting a newly commissioned work, Handle, at CCS Hessel Museum of Art, Bard College. Frances is currently a PhD Candidate at Monash University developing a research project titled The Pink Embrace: Queering the Curator.

Jason Phu is a visual artist who works across a range of mediums from installation, painting and sculpture, where he traces the connections between the tradition of Chinese brush and ink painting and contemporary practice. Recently Jason has had numerous solo exhibitions in Australia including Westspace, Melbourne; Nicholas Projects, Melbourne; CCAS Gorman Arts Centre, Canberra; and ALASKA PROJECTS, Sydney. He won the coveted Sulman Prize in 2015 and in the same year received a Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship. Jason’s work is currently on show at the Art Gallery of NSW and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
