AN ARTSOURCE & UWA CULTURAL PRECINCT SYMPOSIUM

HOME TOWN explores the relationship between artists and communities in the realisation of ambitious site specific artworks. It considers existing international and local projects; their history, impact and significance for local communities. The discussion will consider artist driven projects and the paradox of permanence for art in a shifting cultural context. The day also covers the local/global nexus and art experiences made extraordinary through the agency of communities.

Speakers: Gary Dufour (Perth, WA), Margaret Moore (Perth, WA), Lisa Roet (Melbourne, VIC), James Angus (New York, USA), Ian Strange (New York, USA), Anne Loxley (Sydney, NSW), Jonathon Kimberley (Hobart, TAS), Curtis Taylor (Western Desert, WA), Tess Maunder (Brisbane, QLD).
