Art et al. x Arts Project Australia: Intersect

Intersect will present work from three continents by neurodivergent, intellectually and learning disabled artists, alongside their non-disabled peers. The exhibition will focus on the artworks produced during ‘UK/AU Season of Culture’ Peer/Peer collaborations – digital residencies pairing international artists with and without disabilities.


Celebrating the diversity of cultures, exhibiting APA artists will include Georgia Szmerling, Samraing Chea, Bronwyn Hack, Emily Dober, Lisa Reid, Alan Constable and Anthony Romagnano. They will be joined by Holly Stevenson, Matt Robertson, Lala Nurlala, Matthew Clarke, John Powell-Jones, David Blandy, Larry Achiampong, Sandra St Hilare, Tony Allen, Sam Jevon and Yoki Mekuria. Select exhibiting artists’ work with the following supported studios: Arts Project Australia, Melbourne; ArtGusto, Geelong; and Submit to Love, London.

Intersect will highlight UK-based Billy Mann in his Curating Collections project in collaboration with Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA). Further Art et al. initiatives, including Curatorial Mentorships, will be reflected through printed material and events. These projects include APA’s Eden Menta working with European curator and researcher Stella Sideli in a Curatorial Mentorship.

This exhibition will feature new international commissions, collaborations, and artists engaged by Art et al. during 2021-22. Intersect will also present a selection of curated video works introducing 2022 programming ‘UK x Australia x Indonesia’, a year-long collaboration with Indonesian organisation Ketemu.

Art et al.’s projects for Intersect have been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the British Council through their International Collaboration Grants, the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the Aesop Foundation. Art et al. is founded by Arts Project Australia, Jennifer Lauren Gallery, and Slominski Projects, with thanks to curator Katrina Schwarz for inspiring the launch of Art et al.
