Matthew Hunt

Associate Artist Residency

Matthew Hunt’s practice spans printmaking, drawing, sculpture, video, installation and site-specific performance.

Matthew ‘s work has been exhibited widely in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2009); TarraWarra Museum of Art, Melbourne (2007); The Art Gallery of Western Australia, (2008); Gertrude St Contemporary, Melbourne, Australia (2006); Kaskadenkondensator, Basel, Switzerland (2004); Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, Australia (2004); Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, University of Western Australia, Perth (2003). Matthew’s works are held in the collections of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Artbank, Christoph Merian Stiftung Switzerland, City of Perth, Curtin University of Technology, Joondalup City Council, Kerry Stokes Collection, Murdoch University and the University of Western Australia.

Associate Artist Residency

Acme's Associate Artist Residency allows artists to apply directly to Acme for shorter-term (up to three months) residency opportunities. These residencies are selected directly by Acme and tailored to suit the development and networking needs of international artists, allowing them to engage in research, develop relationships and focus on their work in a supported environment.

This residency has been supported by the Australia Council for the Arts
