The Murray Bridge Regional Gallery is calling for proposals for a four week artist residency based around the concept of the artist book and zines.

The residency will include workshops with local community members and will result in an exhibition in the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery from 14 September – 21 October 2018.

The residency will complement the exhibition Self made: zines and artist books from the State Library of Victoria which will be held at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery during the same dates as the residency exhibition.
