Hatched: National Graduate Show 2022 presents the work of leading emerging artists recently graduated from art schools across the nation. Since establishing Hatched in 1992 PICA has worked with generations of makers and watched many of them establish themselves as leading artists with enduring practices.
Selected by a panel of national and international artists and curators, the artists exhibiting as part of Hatched present a tantalising glimpse into the diverse and exciting practices of arts graduates in Australia, whose unique visions of the future are both urgent and compelling.
This year’s panel, who reviewed 61 nominations, consisted of Rohin Kickett (Artist, Perth), Pilar Mata Dupont, (Artist, Rotterdam), Llewellyn Milhouse (Exhibition Production Designer, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane), and Talia Smith (Artist and Curator, Sydney).
The 25 artists selected for the only national graduate exhibition in the country will join some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists as Hatched alumni. Now entering its third decade, Hatched is an exciting signifier of future arts practice.
