2 October 2013 | This week the Bank of America Merrill Lynch will launch a new program to support Australian artists. The Art of Connecting Rotating Art program will showcase leading contemporary artists to the bank’s clients, employees and stakeholders.

Each artist selected for the program will present a solo exhibition in the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sydney offices for three to four months. McLean Edwards has been selected for the inaugural edition of the program and his collection of works will be accompanied by a catalogue with an essay by Andrew Frost.

Other artists who have been confirmed as taking part in the program include Ben Quilty, Euan MacLeod, Lucy Culliton, Neil Frazer, Wendy Sharpe, Joanna Braithwaite, David Griggs, the Estate of Adam Cullen, Jasper Knight and Guy Maestri.

The Bank of America Merrill Lynch initiative follows on from the financial institution’s ongoing commitment to supporting the visual arts globally. In Australia, the bank has been involved in a number of art conservation projects with the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the National Gallery of Victoria.
