'Explorers: Narratives of Site in Contemporary Art Practices'
Intrinsic to the artistic vision of the project is the facilitation of a deep engagement with the cultural and architectural heritage of the site through a concept development phase. Artists and curators will engage in explorations of stories, both historical and traditional, as well as with the material traces of the past through explorations of archival materials, the landscape and architecture. Artists working across a range of media, including painting, installation, performance and time-based media within the framework of contemporary art practice will present new work in response to the historical and cultural resonances of the site. Three broad themes: Stories, Mapping the Terrain and Architecture inform the curatorial approach to the exhibition.
Curated by Modern Art Projects Blue Mountains Beata Geyer and Mahalya Middlemist, exhibiting artists include: Sarah Breen Lovett, Vicky Browne, Vivienne Dadour, Fiona Davies, Carolyn Eccles, Beata Geyer, Anne Graham, Melissa Grahovac, Amanda Hunt, Danica Knezevic, Daniel Kojta, Mahalya Middlemist, Ian Milliss, Sean O’Keeffe, Michael Petchkovsky, Emma Rooney, Jacqueline Spedding and Miriam Williamson. More information about the exhibition program is available at the website link. 'Explorers: Narratives of Site in Contemporary Art Practices' project is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
