The Australia Project is a series of creative initiatives aimed at critically examining the national Australian identity.
Engaging prominent Australian creatives and the general public alike, the project provokes wide-spread debate regarding contemporary Australian culture.
Post-colonial, multi-cultural, historically conflicted & geographically isolated, The Australia Project re-examines clichéd cultural stereotypes, with the intention of revealing new perspectives from Australians today.
Premiering at the AGIdeas 2010 International Design Week, the launch of The Inaugural Australia Project Exhibition occurs at the C3 Contemporary Art Space on Wednesday April 28 at 6:00pm.
Encompassing a selection of contemporary interpretations from Australia’s most talented creatives, the exhibition includes work from:
Michael Hall, Mimmo Cozzolino, The Glue Society, David Lancashire, 3 Deep Design, Kevin Finn and Ghostpatrol.
New and existing works from The Australia Project’s community based initiatives will also be on display, whilst co-curators Chris Edser, Scott Heinrich and Yianni Hill offer further insights as to the project’s progression, rationale and future direction.
