There Is No Lead Mine Here – Kandos Projects

Tue 2 January - Sun 3 March


In collaboration with the Mudgee Region Action Group, artists Terry Burrows, Lulu Wulf, Jo Albany, Andrew Robards and Gus Amstrong present a second iteration of the Armstrong-curated exhibition, ‘There Is No Lead Mine Here’.  Originally installed at Way Out Artspace in Kandos, 19 local artists from the Lawsons Creek Art Fellowship were invited to respond to “the anxieties, impacts and consequences of having a large scale open cut silver mine approved within 20 kilometres of your community.” (Curator’s statement)

In this second shopfront iteration, the banners of the Mudgee Region Action Group show the location of the mine within the spectacular and highly productive agricultural landscape alongside the reactions of those who find their way of life and health of community “suddenly under threat by the powerful governmental and economic forces that go into the approval of major industrial developments.” (Curator’s statement)
