Two Peggy Glanville-Hicks Addresses in 2020 - and 10 new opportunities
Today, the AMC is proud to announce the names of the artists who will deliver the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address in 2020, as well as declaring open Expressions of Interest for several opportunities, also under the banner of the prestigious Address.
As announced earlier, the AMC has decided to commission not one but two Addresses in 2020. Legendary team Madeleine Flynn & Tim Humphrey will deliver the first Peggy Glanville-Hicks Address in 2020, followed by a second Address delivered by Sunny Kim. Both Addresses will be delivered online early in the second half of the year, dates to be confirmed.
Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey are leading Australian audio conceptual artists who create unexpected situations for listening. Their work is driven by a curiosity and questioning about sound in human culture and seeks to evolve and engage with new processes and audiences, through public and participative interventions.
Born in South Korea and based in Melbourne, Sunny Kim is a vocalist, improviser, composer and educator. She collaborates with contemporary and traditional musicians, dancers, and visual artists to explore expressions regarding identity, spirituality, gender, and cross-disciplinary art forms.
To support our community in this difficult time, we will also be commissioning 10 artists, ensembles or organisations to create online content, with an honorarium of $1,000 for each of these opportunities. The EOIs for these opportunities are now open. For details, see the Peggy Glanville-Hicks Commissions 2020 webpage.
