Code of Conduct
SYDNEY. 27 OCTOBER – 10 DECEMBER 2017.
Code of Conduct is a group exhibition of work by artists from across Australia and the Pacific whose practices explore the movement of cultural practices and commodities throughout the region. It focuses on a group of artists for whom artistic production develops out of a complex and interlaced constellation of references from across the globe that are used to navigate their local conditions. Strategies of piracy, bootlegging and appropriation are deployed by these artists in an attempt to contribute to a visual language that is at once responsive to their local conditions but able to circulate within a global context. The artists negotiate new notions of originality and authorship through developing a network of collaborators as both producers of and consumers of cultural output.Code of Conduct speaks to how artistic practices can become tools to navigate the complexities of exchange where networked realities blur regionality.
