INSIDE THE GALLERY (AUSTRALIA) - RURAL UTOPIAS AT AGWA
The Art Gallery of Western Australia and SPACED present Rural Utopias at The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA) from 25 November 2023.
Rural Utopias features new works by 10 artists from across Australia, developed over a series of residencies in rural and remote Western Australia, in dialogue with selected objects from AGWA’s $361 million State Art Collection.
In collaboration with their host communities, artists lived and worked within their residency locations responding to the overarching curatorial theme of “Rural Utopias” to deliver context-responsive and socially engaged art.
SPACED Rural Utopias Curator, Miranda Johnson, speaks with Inside The Gallery's Tim Stackpool about the extended journey of the exhibition, the manner in which the artists were affected by the residencies, and how SPACED works with galleries to deliver unique and contemplative exhibitions.
