Collaborations between Gippsland and Melbourne-based artists
Employing innovative forms of collaboration over a period of nine months, Gippsland and Melbourne-based artists have been brought together in the exhibition Hockey Plot to explore socio-cultural landscapes and notions of territory, boundary and environmental politics.
Actively bridging the geographical and socio-cultural space between regional and metropolitan based artists, this project brings artists from disparate art practices together, transcending artistic boundaries and forging new partnerships and using innovative means of communication to achieve this.
Seeking to broaden the notion of an artist’s practice as being more than a solitary enterprise driven by a singular set of aesthetics and preconceived creative values, artists were challenged throughout the project by multiple, varied and sometimes conflicting interests—the outcome of which will be displayed in both Melbourne and regional Victoria.
