The 2017 HOBIENNALE (or HB17 for short) will bring together a large group of artist-run initiatives from across Australia and New Zealand, with each curating an exhibition as part of the festival program.

HB17 will showcase the work of around 100 emerging and mid-career artists. It is a free festival that will occupy a range of existing galleries and unusual sites across Hobart. The extensive festival program will include exhibition openings, artist talks, music and performances.

HOBIENNALE is the first festival of its kind in Australia and will continue biannually.

The full festival program will be launched on Friday the 8th of September.

Artist-run initiatives are grassroots organisations, led by groups of volunteers. HB17 believe that some of the most interesting, critical and diverse exhibitions are shown by artist-run initiatives, and that these varied organisations are incredibly important to Australia’s art landscape and to their respective communities.

There is a national climate of uncertainty within the arts, influenced by changes to the structure of major arts organisations and diminishing funding opportunities. These changes will continue to have an impact on the careers of young Australian artists. HB17 will create a vital space for conversations around this issue to take place, and for organisations and artists to demonstrate current strengths and future potential to a wide audience.

HB17 is funded by the Australia Council for the Arts, Hobart City Council and Tasmanian Regional Arts. Whilst this funding has made the festival possible, HB17 still needs to raise $10,000 in order to fully deliver its festival program.

Donations made to HB17 will be used to pay artists, install exhibitions and deliver the festival’s public programs.

The Australian and New Zealand ARIs participating in the festival are The Curated Shelf (TAS), Visual Bulk (TAS), Sawtooth ARI (TAS), KINGS ARI (VIC), Watch This Space, (NT), Frontyard (NSW), FAKE Estate (QLD), TCB inc (VIC), Success (WA), FELTspace (SA), Bus Projects (VIC), Sister (SA), ANCA, (ACT), Alaska Projects (NSW), Constance ARI (TAS), play_station (NZ), MEANWHILE (NZ), MOANA (WA) and C3(VIC).
