Remembering Harold Schenberg

Schenberg Fellows

A selection of the late Dr Harold Schenberg's art collection.

During his lifetime, Dr Harold Schenberg was a great supporter of emerging artists.

His support for promising talent continues through the awarding of an annual arts prize in his name.

His donation to The University of Western Australia included the establishment of a $35,000 Schenberg Art Fellowship to promote and assist up-and-coming artists.

The substantial prize money allows the winner to invest in the development of their practice.

The Schenberg Art Fellowship is awarded to an artist featured in the Hatched National Graduate Exhibition at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA).

2017 Schenberg Fellow - Kai Wasikowski

Of winning the award, Kai said:

"Becoming a Schenberg Fellow provides an incredible opportunity to expand and deepen the scope of my artistic practice and research.

I feel so thrilled by the possibilities of travel, the time to explore new environments and histories, and the ability to build and strengthen relationships within creative spaces both familiar and unfamiliar. The generous and momentous support of the Fellowship is a real privilege and a huge encouragement to push past my own expectations and capabilities as an artist and a member of the local and international art community."
