Commissioned by Melbourne Art Foundation and HOTA Gallery, the 2020 Commission promises to be a major drawcard of this year’s Melbourne Art Fair.

The program provides a living artist with a rare opportunity to realise a large-scale work for unveiling at the fair, and later forming part of HOTA Gallery’s permanent collection.

The new $60.5 million HOTA Gallery will be built at Home of the Arts on the Gold Coast in Queensland. Set to open in 2021, it will be the country’s largest   gallery outside a capital city with over 2,000 sqm of exhibition space, and aims to showcase local talent, its rich and rapidly expanding permanent collection and internationally acclaimed touring exhibitions.

The 2020 Commission recipient will be announced in November 2019.

Previous partners in the Melbourne Art Foundation Commission Program include the Bendigo Art Gallery, NGV, QAGOMA, the University of Queensland Art Museum, MCA, Art Gallery of South Australia, National Gallery of Australia; and artists Ronnie van Hout, Michael Parekowhai, David Griggs, Peter Hennessey, Jon Campbell, Ian Burns, and Mikala Dwyer.
