‘We need you, you need us’
Curated by Georgie Meagher
Opening night Friday 20 April 6-8pm
In ‘We need you, you need us’ five artists from across Australia respond to the idea of “The Experience Economy” – presenting sculptural, performative and interactive works which question the role of the artist in a capitalist economic framework and explore the precarities of artistic practice. An artist fee will be sealed inside the walls of the gallery, artworks will be freely distributed, and audiences can gamble for an insight into economic success, or a year-long relationship. Questioning the sensibility of the artist as intellectually or physically superior, both the role of the artist and artwork are deconstructed by processes of imitation and reproduction in five new works.
Exhibition continues until May 19 5pm
