Curator's Talk

    Free

Join Freja Carmichael, one of the 2018 Visiting Curators, for an insight into their exhibition The Commute. Hear about her experience working closely with artists Carol McGregor, who produced her largest possum skin cloak to date, and Hannah Brontë, whose work engages portraiture, and for the first time, large-scale painting, and the collaborative development of the project with co-curators, Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Léuli Eshrāghi, Tarah Hogue, and Lana Lopesi.

The Commute encompasses a series of commissioned projects by artists located around the Great Ocean, also known as the Pacific Rim, who assert complex, wide-ranging, contemporary Indigenous experiences inclusive of both ancestral knowledges and global connections. Artists include Natalie Ball, Hannah Brontë, Bracken Hanuse Corlett, Chantal Fraser, Lisa Hilli, Carol McGregor, Ahilapalapa Rands, and T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss.
