New Contemporaries

On-campus exhibition and online showcase
To celebrate the achievements of our talented Sydney College of the Arts graduates, we are holding a 2021 Graduation Exhibition - New Contemporaries. Opening Wednesday 1 December at Old Teachers’ College.

At the end of each academic year, we celebrate our graduating cohort and the culmination of their collective research and practice-based outcomes. We invite you to visit us at The Old Teachers' College to see this year's Graduation Show and enjoy the work of our undergraduate students.

Over thirty works will be on display from studio areas including screen arts, photography, painting, printmedia, sculpture, ceramics, glass and jewellery and object.

Date: Wednesday 1 December - Saturday 11 December, 2021

Time: 10am - 5pm, Monday to Saturday

Location: SCA Gallery and adjoining spaces, Old Teachers' College, Manning Road, The University of Sydney, Camperdown.

Event registration is essential. Register now on Eventbrite.

Online showcase

In parallel with the exhibition, we are excited to be launching an online showcase of New Contemporaries as a marker of our students' achievements.

This online showcase represents SCA’s graduating cohort navigating the challenges of yet another unprecedented year. The works within represent the capstone of degrees including the Bachelor of Visual Arts, Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) or Masters of Moving Image.

This platform brings our students together after many months of being unable to gather in person. It was created in consultation with a colourful cohort and designed to mimic the textured experience of wandering through studios located on-campus.

Each profile can be accessed through an object captured from the artists’ own working space and is personalised to echo their creative ethos. Unlike the physical exhibition, it offers glimpses into their working process and provides pathways to explore their work further via personal website links.
