Material Exchange: SHE TURNS Artist Talk
Rebecca Thomas and Meredith Turnbull will discuss the development of their project 'SHE TURNS', currently exhibiting at c3 Contemporary Art Space until Sunday 15 October. They will look at processes of transformation, symbiotic working relationships and their shared passion for research around decorative traditions, ornamentation and sculpture. 'SHE TURNS' is the second of three projects in the 'Material Exchange' mentorship program.
Facilitated by Meredith Turnbull and c3 Projects
'Material Exchange' explores an expanded notion of mentorship, examining how influences and ideas flow in a reciprocal manner between artists. These relations flow up and across, rather than simply via the conventional path of mentor to mentee. Facilitated by Meredith Turnbull with c3 Projects, presented as three discrete exhibitions between August and November, the project draws out and further expands on the points of convergence and departure evident in the practices of the participating artists, including: political and material approaches to making; conceptual and thematic research as both the material of and impetus for the creation of artworks; an engagement with concepts such as environment through matter, place and ecologies; and a critique and examination of systems from within social relations, art history and politics.
'Material Exchange' is a part of c3 Contemporary Art Space's larger 2017 Professional Development and Mentorship program. This program includes more than 12 projects and 25 artists.
'Material Exchange' is funded by Creative Victoria and Yarra City Council.
This event is an Auslan accessible event.
