VCA Graduate Students
@ Punctum's White Space and ICU
An annual award exhibition of VCA Honours graduates presented by The Substation, the VCA and Punctum Inc.
Since 2012 The Substation and the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) have worked with Punctum Inc. to present Future Now in Castlemaine. Showcasing a range of artistic practice by seven of the newest talents in Melbourne’s contemporary art scene each year, Future Now tours regional Victoria, connecting artists and communities across the State.
Ahead of the State-wide tour, the exhibition premieres at The Substation Centre for Art and Culture. The seven artists, selected by The Substation’s visual art curator, present new work throughout the centre's expansive gallery spaces – a significant opportunity to participate in one of Melbourne’s most dynamic contemporary art programs. The exhibition is then restaged at three regional art spaces, allowing the artists to continue developing their work, and reshape the show at each venue.
Future Now is supported by the Faculty of VCA & MCM’s Regional Training & Engagement Fund, funded by the State Government through Arts Victoria, and delivered in partnership with Regional Arts Victoria.
