About Bundanon

Arthur Boyd opened the Bundanon Artist in Residence complex designed by Sydney architect Tonkin Zulakha, in 1998. As a gift to the Australian people, Arthur Boyd’s vision for Bundanon was to provide an inspirational haven for artists of every discipline and at all stages in their careers.

Bundanon advances contemporary art practice through fostering artists, producers/directors, as well as curators and educators engaged in research and development. Residencies under this program do not necessarily involve production-based outcomes. The residency supports artists’ new work, research and collaboration. Australian and international artists are hosted in purpose-built studios located at the Bundanon properties on the Shoalhaven River in NSW. As such, there is high prestige attached to having undergone a residency at Bundanon.

The Bundanon Trust Artist-in-Residence program is the largest program of its kind in Australia. The program welcomes around 350 artists each year from all disciplines and levels of experience, making it highly sought after by artists nationally. A residency experience at the Bundanon Trust provides artists with the opportunity to develop their art forms in the beautiful surroundings of the residency complex.
