In 2010, CAT established four studio spaces positioned above its offices in North Hobart. These have become a core component of our organisation, providing a vital contribution to the development of contemporary art culture in Tasmania.

CAT is dedicated to supporting a diverse range of artistic practice, providing opportunity to artists at different stages of their careers and maintaining inclusivity through an inter-generational selection. Tasmanian-based artists are awarded a 12-month residency by application, accessed through the CAT Program committee.

During their one-year residency, artists will be invited to trial and present new work in the CAT Project space.

The 2020 studio artists are: Andy Hutson, Dexter Rosengrave, Jake Walker and Maria Blackwell

Arts professionals wishing to apply for a studio placement must read the below information prior to applying.


The 2020 Contemporary Art Tasmania Studios closed on October 1 2019.
