Sydney-based art collective Alaska Projects have revealed their 2016 program, and hot damn is it impressive. The artist-run initiative, which recently celebrated its fourth birthday, will once again shine a spotlight on new and exciting works from dozens of Australian artists, across mediums including painting, sculpture, video, photography, performance and more.

Among the group of artists listed in today's initial announcement, standout names include celebrated multidisciplinary artist Shaun Gladwell, provocative art collective Soda_Jerk, sibling duo nova Milne, and filmmaker and visual artist Angela Tiatia. The program was curated by gallery director Bradley Vincent and Alaska Projects founder Sebastian Goldspin.

"There is a breadth of scope to the program but also a commonality," says Vincent. "Each of these artists represents the kind of questioning and open process that will deliver a year of exhibitions that look outward, delivering exciting and unpredictable works that embrace the full poetic potential of the Alaska Projects space."

"Every new year of Alaska Projects brings growth but also an ongoing excitement to be working with artists at the coalface of emerging practice," added Goldspin.
