Beatrice Magalotti

I am a Melbourne based artist.

During May & June  this year, I was one of the artists at the Fish Factory, Creative Centre, a multi-disciplinary art Residency in Iceland.

In March 2017 I had an art residency in Stanley, Tasmania where I was mentored by Jon Eiseman, Sculptor and Anne Conron, printmaker & ceramicist. This challenging residency was a perfect way to obtain critical feedback on my work and to produce a significant new body of work.

I completed my BA, sculpture at Prahran in 1985 and my Curatorial Postgrad at Melbourne University in 1992.

My first major exhibition was in 2002 at Moor Street Art Gallery, Fitzroy and I have been exhibiting on a regular basis. I have also curated a number of exhibitions for other groups and artists, in particular “Libart” in 2005 and 2010-2012 for the Association Sculpture Victoria for their annual exhibitions. In 2002 I was artist in residence at Catholic Ladies College, Eltham.

In 1998 I started Shelter Shed Art with other artists where I was able to bring an art appreciation experience to primary school students and to make sculpture fun and enjoyable.

My major research thesis was on the Meat Workers Union Patronage of the Arts.

I plan to have an exhibition every 18 months.
