The Artist As

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This project seeks to examine how artists move through the world, and how that movement might involve adopting other roles to pursue a project, a position, a politics, or a practice. To make work today, the artist may act as architect, as ethnographer, as archivist, as curator, as activist, as choreographer, and so on. The Artist As also recognises that many artists come to their practice as experts in other fields, bringing with them specialist knowledge that shapes their work. This curatorial project began as a lecture series and is now being developed into a publication that commissions new writing from Australian and international artists and writers. I’ve conceived and will edit and write for the publication, which will be published by Sternberg Press in 2017.
