Copyright Agency Partnerships (CAP) Commission 

Applications closes 25 June 2021

4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is partnering with Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund to launch the Copyright Agency Partnerships (CAP) Commission, an annual series supporting mid-career and established visual artists or collectives via a $80,000 commission. From 2021 – 2024, this commission will provide the opportunity for one artist or collective per year to develop and exhibit a significant body of work with  leading arts organisations.

For the CAP Commission series, Copyright Agency is partnering with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art (Sydney, apply 2021/exhibit 2022), Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (Melbourne, apply 2022/exhibit 2023) and Institute of Modern Art (Brisbane, apply 2023/exhibit 2024). The total value of the commission is  $80,000, inclusive of a $20,000 artist fee.

4A is thrilled to team up with the Copyright Agency to support an artist to create and exhibit at 4A’s gallery in Haymarket, Sydney during 2022. 

For the CAP Commission at 4A, we encourage Australian artists of Asian heritage, who are working across all media, to apply. 

Applicants will be required to apply for the grant directly to the Copyright Agency website, however we recommend that you discuss your potential application with 4A prior to submitting. Please contact Amrit Gill, Artistic Director/CEO, on amrit.gill[@]4a.com.au.
