Next Wave Festival (a world of creative discovery).

shadow sites Curated by Samantha McCulloch (ZAF/VIC) & Frances Wilkinson (VIC)

What happens to artworks when they are hidden from view, waiting in vaults and archives? Examining the relationship between artwork, its documentation and viewing spaces, shadow sites explores how art is understood both within and outside of the gallery. Artists in conversation: Léuli Eshraghi, Grace Herbert, Sophie Neate, James Tyler, Rudie Williams and Elmedin Žuni?.

Join the curators and participating artists of shadow sites for an informal discussion across both exhibition venues. Starting at National Storage, the curators will introduce the project, after which the artists will talk about their work and the site, moving through each display unit. The group will then walk to the Centre for Contemporary Photography to discuss the second part of the exhibition.

Guests are welcome to participate in discussion, ask questions or simply listen and enjoy the conversations.

Artists in conversation:

  • Léuli Eshraghi
  • Grace Herbert
  • Sophie Neate
  • James Tylor
  • Rudi Williams
  • Elmedin Žuni?

Starts at National Storage, 110 Wellington St, Collingwood and ends at Centre for Contemporary Photography, 404 George St, Fitzroy
