Making Art Work
IMA Belltower at the Judith Wright Arts Centre
06 December–19 December 202006 Dec–19 Dec 2020
Making Art Work—a commissioning initiative responding to the COVID-19 lockdowns—launched in June with artworks presented online via makingart.work. Since re-opening, IMA Belltower at Judith Wright Arts Centre has become a project space to physically present these works at the gallery.
This latest iteration of Making Art Work at IMA Belltower includes works from the third and fourth commissioning rounds of the project.
About Making Art Work:
Taking place across 2020, the project will see over 40 artists create new works that reinforce the importance of creative labour in a time when the cultural and economic value of art has been diminished. Drawing from the politicised language of our current crisis, each artist has been asked to respond to the provocations posed by four curatorial pillars; Unprecedented Times, Industrial Actions, Permanent Revolution, and Relief Measures.
