June 24 – September 24
Artists in Volatile Landscapes is the culmination of 18 months creative research undertaken by 30 artists from across NSW (including guest artists from Western Sydney) who have responded to the question, ‘What does the future look like in your region?’. The project is an initiative of the NSW Regional Arts Network under the banner of ‘Regional Futures’ and funded by Create NSW.
Artists across different mediums & in collaboration with other sectors and in consultation with their communities, have explored key issues affecting their region, revealing the hopes & fears for the future. Through their creative practice, they have explored questions around climate change, housing, healing of country, sustainability, finite resources, renewable energy, acting now for the future & how to listen better to the environment and to the non-human world.
The outcome is a group exhibition that is provocative and contemplative; that raises critical questions and encourages us to think deeply about how to prepare for inevitable change and how to build resilience.
