PROUD gives VCA students the opportunity to exhibit their extraordinary new works in an encouraging and collaborative atmosphere.
You'll find the winners listed by clicking here. Patrons of PROUD can purchase the early works of Australia’s next generation of artists at exceedingly reasonable prices safe in the knowledge that all monies are going directly to the artists.

We are hoping to tear down some of the barriers between people not normally inclined towards attending exhibitions and the rising artists of tomorrow, PROUD Coordinator Laureen Lansdown said, whilst also building a very professional event of which the artists can be proud of participating in. Though many prizes are on offer the PROUD exhibition is a supportive rather than competitive environment. The judges adjudicating PROUD 2005 prizes are: ·Lesley Alway - Director of Heide Museum of Modern Art ·Adrien Allen - Director of Conical Inc ·Juliana Engberg - Director of the Australian Centre For Contemporary Art.
Juliana Engberg will also be opening the exhibition with Dr Terry Cutler, VCASU Patron. PROUD 2005 occurs at a time of great threat to student unions by the Federal Government as it attempts to cripple the very opposition that gives balance to our democracy.

Of all the work done by student unions their contribution to our nation’s arts and culture has created a long and durable legacy that cannot be underrated, Ms Lansdown added.

The PROUD 2005 entrants are sure to stimulate and will whet your appetite for the future of contemporary Australian art.
