Over Summer 2019-20, view works from artists Amicus Atman and Emiliano Fernandez selected from the annual Emerge in the North Art Show 2019. These works were developed on the theme ‘meeting point’ and showcase some of the extraordinary talent growing across this culturally diverse community.

Amicus Atman makes work informed by myth, diversity and psychedelia. His new series explores the purpose of being and how new understandings are generated from both constructed and discovered experiences.

Similarly, Emiliano Fernandez invites the viewer to find new ways to understand our fragile natural environment through his imagery which hovers between depictions of reality and imagined imagery drawn from the subconscious.

The Emerge program is Multicultural Arts Victoria’s ongoing response to consultations with emerging, Indigenous and refugee communities that show a strong desire to increase participation in the arts. This program generates vibrant cultural development and has been developed alongside artists and organisations who want to grow a strong, vibrant and inclusive cultural life for the outer north metropolitan region. Emerge in the North provides opportunities for independent artists to present their work in a curated context, while networking, collaborating and building strong connections across the area through the arts.
