The fortyfivedownstairs Artist in Residence Programme 2017 aims to foster the creation and development of new contemporary art in Melbourne. The residency will support the career development and exposure of the resident artist, as well as engaging audiences in contemporary art practice.

The residency will culminate in a two-week exhibition in the fortyfivedownstairs Large Gallery, which will include artwork created during the residency.
