Hatched: National Graduate Show 2017
6 May - 18 Jun
All PICA Galleries
The Hatched: National Graduate Show features work by recent arts graduates of the highest calibre from art schools all over the country. With work by 35 graduates carefully selected from 3 tertiary institutions in each of Australia’s states and territories, Hatched 2017 will once again test the pulse of the nation’s emerging arts practices while acting as an important springboard for artistic careers.
The $40,000 Schenberg Art Fellowship is awarded to one outstanding Hatched artist as an investment in the development of their career. This is the eighth year that PICA has worked with the University of Western Australia and the trustees of the Dr Harold Schenberg trust to present this generous cash prize.

Let’s begin with two people.
Deep in the gloom a phone rings. They take the call. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around his stomach. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough.
These people, these sisters and lovers and pilots and brothers are joined deep beneath the surface, below knowledge, down where desire and depravity lie. The line goes dead and these two people catch a glimpse of what’s to come, as it retreats back into the fog.
