‘Open Borders’ is a series of 12 group exhibitions and 3 original performances held across all 9 regions of WA during 2022-23. Each event reflects the unique interests, artists and experiences of the diverse participating communities (Kununurra, Broome, Port Hedland, Gascoyne Junction, Geraldton, Carnamah, Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Ravensthorpe, Narrogin, Denmark, Northcliffe, Margaret River and Dwellingup). Interconnected through the central theme of ‘Open Borders’, the project aims to culminate in a survey of contemporary regional art practice at John Curtin Gallery (Perth) in September-November 2023.
Creative Corner is a proud participant in this project, and is currently accepting Expressions of Interest for a Curatorial Mentor role with the project, as well as a Curatorial Mentee to take part, with EOIs closing COB 30th June, 2022.
Further information about the Open Borders series is on the Southern Forest Arts website here. This includes the unifying curatorial brief written by Lead Curator, Annette Davis.
