Melbourne Art Fair invites international applications for Video

Melbourne Art Fair is pleased to announce international gallery applications are open for Video 2022.

Video is an international platform for the exhibition and sale of moving-image art from new and iconic contemporary artists, staged within Australia’s leading contemporary art fair.

Melbourne Art Fair will take place in the Australian summer, 17-20 February 2022 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, to present solo shows and works of scale and significance by the region’s most important contemporary galleries.

In a bid to help galleries maintain connection with Australasia’s active and growing collector-base during the pandemic, Melbourne Art Fair is accepting the remote participation of 5 international galleries in the sector.

Participants will physically exhibit in a curated exhibition space with a dedicated screen for one single-channel work per gallery, as well as online via Melbourne Art Fair Virtual.

Video, curated by Nina Miall (Curator International Art at QAGOMA), calls for applications with work that considers the relationship between contemporary art and the 2022 artistic program theme, Place.

  • Exhibition of one work in the Video sector
  • Equipment (single channel screen 55″ + sound), installation and signage provided
  • Melbourne Art Fair Virtual Gallery Profile: allowing the presentation of up to 8 other artworks
