In 2021 Daniel MacCarthy is the Sidney Nolan Trust’s Resident Artist

The Resident Artist scheme is a new pilot that seeks to provide an artist with an extended period of support and development through subsidised studio space and the support of the Trust and staff.

In contrast to the short-term artist residences that we offer, the Resident Artist scheme is designed so that artists become more fully integrated with the work of the Trust and that both the artist and organisation benefits from this relationship.

Dan has already brought his extensive experience as a gallery/art technician to the Trust, supporting the development of our gallery space and future printmaking ambitions, as well as offering and debating ideas for our site and creative programmes. We anticipate that the pilot will culminate in an exhibition of Dan’s work at The Rodd in 2022.
