20 new installation works by 20 outstanding regional artists link and challenge diverse Australian communities across 4 regions (TAS, QLD, NSW, SA) through an ambitious partnered exhibition and touring project that builds audiences using a collaborative, interactive curatorial and touring framework.
Artists work together discursively with lead curator Pat Hoffie, approaching the project as a series of iterations that explore the effects of ‘globalised’ thinking and the impact on changing relationships to ‘place’.
