Expression of Interest: Wagga Wagga – exhibition and symposium on the theme Listening in the Anthropocene: Creative practice and multimedia artsmaking in response to a human influenced world.

In 2020, Charles Sturt University Creative Practice Circle, in collaboration with Albury LibraryMuseum and Wagga Wagga City Council, will host a symposium and exhibition entitled Listening in the Anthropocene: Creative practice and multimedia artsmaking in response to a human influenced world.

Here’s the details directly from CSU:

The two keynote speakers for the symposium are Mandy Martin, Artist and Honorary Professor at the Fenner School of Environment and Society and ANU, and Margaret Woodward, Artist and Adjunct Professor from Charles Sturt University.

This is a call for expressions of interest:

1) submitting art works to the exhibition;
2) submitting an abstract for the symposium;
3) submitting an artwork to our pop-up exhibition with 4-minute explanation during symposium lunch on April 18th.

  1. The H R Gallop gallery will present an exhibition of the works of the Creative Practice Circle and other invited artists. Artists who would like to express interest in having their works exhibited in the gallery from the symposium dates to May 8th should send an image of the work, or an abstract describing the proposed work to jmunday@csu.edu.au including dimensions of the work, before February 29th, 2020. Artists whose work will be included will be notified mid-March.
  2. Arts-based researchers who wish to give a presentation on the theme “Listening in the Anthropocene” during the symposium, 17th & 18th April, should send an abstract between 200-300 words to jmunday@csu.edu.au before Feb 29th, 2020. Accepted abstracts will be notified by mid-March and included in the programme on the CPC website. Presenters will be invited to submit a full paper to the special edition of Fusion later in 2020.
  3. During the lunch on the 2nd day of the symposium (18th April) a lunch will be held with a pop-up exhibition. Those who would like their artworks included should send images capable of being projected during the lunch. The images will be projected in the H R Gallop gallery and artists will be invited to speak for 4 minutes about their artworks and how they fit in with the symposium theme. Artists will be invited to include their works in the special edition of Fusion along with an abstract. Electronic versions of images should be sent to jmunday@csu.edu.au by February 29th, 2020. Artists whose work will be included will be notified mid-March.

All received expressions of interest will be peer-reviewed by all the members of the Creative Practice Circle.

Those who register to attend the symposium on 17th & 18th April will be asked to pay a $25 registration fee to cover the cost of catering for lunch on April 18th.
