5 June 2013 | The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection at the University of Virginia in the United States is awarding six residencies over the next three years to Australian Indigenous artists.

The residences are in partnership with the Australia Council and will be undertaken by Bronwyn Bancroft, Nici Cumpston (pictured above), David Bosun, Marshall Bell, Richardo Idagi and Bianca Beetson.

Each four week residency will include an exhibition at the museum and the opportunity to participate in the academic life of the university. Margo Smith, director of Kluge-Ruhe stated that the recipients are all highly skilled artists and that the university is looking forward to creating programs across multiple disciplines to involve as many students as possible in the residencies. David Bosun will undertake the first residency in September this year.
