We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Earlier this year, NAVA launched a new podcast, NAVA: in conversation

- a fortnightly series that explores key issues, events and ideas within our sector, and speaks with artists, curators and organisations.

In the current episode, we speak with four key members of All Conference, a network of artists run initiatives. NAVA: in conversation also recently featured The National 2017: New Australian Art, a survey exhibition in Sydney at three major institutions - Carriageworks, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia and Art Gallery of New South Wales. We spoke with the curators of each venue, and exhibiting artists to explore the curatorial direction of the project, the thematics and ideas being discussed by the artists and the opportunities for collaboration across institutions.

You can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes (or wherever you download your podcasts) to stay up to date on contemporary art practice around Australia.
