Dr Ursula Hoff was an influential print curator and historian, whose long and distinguished career at the National Gallery of Victoria spanned four decades. Dr Hoff was also one of the Print Council of Australia’s founding members and its first President.
In honour of Dr Hoff’s rich legacy of print scholarship, the PCA in partnership with the Ursula Hoff Institute are inviting submissions from emerging and established art historians, curators and writers, to write an original research essay that considers an aspect of Australian print culture over the past 50 years. This can include the work of individual artists, printmaking groups and collectives, studios and workshops, or particular trends within Australian printmaking, thus a broad interpretation of “Australian print culture” is encouraged.
Submissions will be assessed by a selection panel, and one writer will be commissioned to produce an original 2000 word essay for publication in the Summer issue of Imprint (December 2017), and will receive $1100.00 for their work.
Deadline for Submissions – Friday 14th July, 2017 (5pm EST)
Successful Applicant Notified – Friday 21st July, 2017
Deadline for Finished Essay – 9th October, 2017
