Five SCA alumni have been selected to exhibit in the inaugural edition of The National 2017: New Australian Art, a unified exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW), Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA).

The AGNSW, Carriageworks and MCA have collaboratively selected 48 emerging, mid-career and established Australian contemporary artists – living across the country and abroad – to present work as part of a single curated program at the three institutions.

It will feature new and commissioned works encompassing a diverse range of mediums including painting, video, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance.
