In May and October this year an exchange is taking place between PhD candidates from the Sydney College of Arts (SCA) and the Faculty of the VCA and Music. A PhD thesis forms the necessary first stage of a dialectical process; functioning as such this exhibition will serve as a testing ground, through public observation, evaluation and discussion.

The exhibition will showcase the distinct practices of these artists at various stages of their PhD candidature, showcasing the results of their research and creative development. Both exhibitions present a diverse group of artists with a varied range of artistic influences.

In May, VCAM will host seven PhD candidates from SCA: Maria Fernanda Cardoso; Kim Connerton; David Haines; Biljana Jancic; Adrian McDonald; Mark Shorter; and Sylvia Schwenk. Curated by Adrian McDonald.

In October, SCA will host and feature the works of current VCAM PhD candidates: Sandra Bridie, Celeste Chandler, Sarah crowEST, Sophie Knezic, David McDowell, Evangelos Sakaris and Simone Slee. Curated by Chantal Faust.
