Andrea Przygonski

I’m an Adelaide-based artist and curator whose practice bridges print, installation, light, sound, textiles and sculpture. I trained at Adelaide Central School of Art, AC Arts, School of the Art Institute of Chicago and University of SA. I hold a Bachelor of Visual Arts (2008) and Master of Visual Arts (2018) and currently operate from my studio Little Sparrow. Over the course of my career, I have taken every opportunity to engage in meaningful programs with two Helpmann Academy Mentorships, the Tara Donovan Studio Workshop held during the Adelaide Festival Artists' Week Workshops, international study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and residences at OxBow School of Art, Michigan and the Banff Centre, Canada. Working collaboratively is also an important part of my activities. I have worked with a number of Australian and international artists to create collaborative print-focussed installation works and continue to curate the Sister City inter-continental collaborative project which brings Australian and international artists together as collaborative teams. I have a broad exhibition history and most recently held solo exhibitions Transfiguring the Terrain at SASA Gallery, followed by Chi-Town Chronicles, a survey of my Chicago-inspired work at praxis ARTSPACE. My work has been supported through scholarships and grants including ArtsSA grants, Australian Postgraduate Award, SAIC New Artist Society Scholarship, Leroy Neiman Foundation Scholarship (OxBox School of Art), Ian Potter Cultural Trust Grant, NAVA/Janet Holmes à Court Artists' Grant and 2 Helpmann Academy Mentorships. My work has also been chosen as a finalist for numerous Australian awards, such as Print Council of Australia Print Commission, Fremantle Print Award and Australian Print Triennial Print Award, and is held in public and private collections including the Art Gallery of South Australia, Print Council of Australia, Burnie Regional Art Gallery, Westminster College, Canson Australia, State Library of Victoria, University of SA, University of Adelaide’s University Collections and the Brooklyn Art Library, New York.
