The final installment of Edge of Elsewhere, a major three-year project by Campbelltown Arts Centre and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, will open January 14th 2012 as part of Sydney Festival’s program.
Leading international and Australian artists have been commissioned by Campbelltown Arts Centre and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art to produce new work in partnership with Sydney’s communities. For the past three years, thirteen artists from across Asia, Australia, and the Pacific have developed significant projects that challenge how we think about contemporary community-engaged practice. Participating artists include Brook Andrew, Arahmaiani, Richard Bell, Dacchi Dang, Newell Harry, FX Harsono, Shigeyuki Kihara, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Lisa Reihana, Khaled Sabsabi, Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Michel Tuffery and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES.
Edge of Elsewhere is curated by Lisa Havilah and Aaron Seeto, and will be presented across two venues at Campbelltown Arts Centre and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
