About the collection
The James C Sourris AM Collection of Artist Interviews consists of interviews with significant Australian artists and figures in the art world. It is a growing collection that provides insight and context to the practice of some of our most respected artists.
Each artist is profiled via three distinct recordings: a full-length interview between the interviewer and the artists, a 30 minute version, optimised for education purposes and a shorter version, generally 5 to 9 minutes in length that gives a quick taste of that person's artistic practice.

The collective is off to New York later this year after winning the 2022–2024 Jane Lombard Prize for Art and Social Justice. The prize was awarded following the OCCURRENT AFFAIR exhibition which was originally held at the UQ Art Museum in 2021, currently touring Australia in partnership with Museums & Galleries NSW.
Filmed onsite at State Library of Queensland on Thursday 29 June 2023.
These education resources encourage students to delve into the lives and works of contemporary Australian artists.
