Samstag Archive

Over the years, as the number of Samstag alumni has grown, the Samstag Program has developed an archive of information that has become a popular resource for artists, educators and researchers. Available here to view or download, the archive includes visual information, catalogues and essays on the Samstag alumni, documentation of exhibition projects, and also diverse Samstag ephemera such as promotional posters.

From 2009, the Samstag Program curtailed production of the annual hard–copy catalogue and promotional poster and is instead placing greater emphasis on electronic, online forms of promotion, considered superior for their relatively unlimited reach and scope.

 

Catalogues

From 1993 until 2008, the Samstag Program published catalogues featuring a commissioned essay and profile of each of the Scholarship recipients in that year.

Promotional Posters

From the second year of the Samstag Program administration, in 1993, an annual promotional poster was produced to raise awareness among eligible Australian artists about the Samstag Scholarships opportunity.

The popular posters had a wide distribution to art schools, galleries and arts organisations, nationally and internationally. Most posters featured a work of art by a successful Samstag Scholar from the preceding year and many have become classics of their kind.
