    Hobart Current is an innovative long-term partnership between the City of Hobart and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. It is a major biennial program to nurture and showcase contemporary artists working across different media, including visual art, performance, music, film, design, and literature.

    A Creative Director is appointed for a two-year cycle. They set the theme and select ten artists to participate, each of whom will be commissioned to create a new work for the exhibition. At least six of the ten chosen will be artists who identify as Tasmanian.

    Rosie Dennis, the inaugural Creative Director of Hobart Current, has selected Tasmanian artists Sinsa Mansell, Brigita Ozolins, James Newitt, Jacob Leary, Dexter Rosengrave and Nadege Philippe-Janon, as well as interstate and international artists Uncle Wes Marne, Suryo Herlambang, Jagath Dheerasekara and Sarah Jane Pell. 

    Our Friends event featured TMAG principal Art Curator Jane Stewart in conversation with four of the artists, Dexter Rosengrave, Jacob Leary, Brigita Ozolins and Nadege Philippe-Janon
