Creative Australia Fellowships to Cole, Ughetti, Fox
Composer Amanda Cole, sound artist Robin Fox and percussionist and composer Eugene Ughetti are among the eleven Creative Australia Fellowship recipients, announced on Wednesday at the Melbourne Recital Centre. The Fellowships are the centrepiece of the Federal Government's Creative Australia grants initiative, delivered by the Australia Council, with $10 million going to individual artists over five years. The Fellowships consist of two categories: established artists (each valued at $100,000 over one year) and early career artists ($60,000 over two years).
Sydney-based Amanda Cole's fellowship program consists of interdisciplinary works combining music with visual art, graphic art, dance, electrical engineering, new media and social media. Her fellowship was granted in the early career category, as was Eugene Ughetti's. Robin Fox's fellowship (in the established artists category) will enable him to expand his audiovisual work, work on new collaborative projects, and develop new techniques for sound and interactive sculpture.
The other fellowship recipients, many of whom also incorporate sound into their work, are Tega Brain, Keg de Souza, Ashley Dyer, Nicola Gunn (all in the early career category) and Richard Bell, Sue Healey and Dave Jones (established artists category).
