International exhibition showcases new visions for Western Australia image

29 June 2017

A new exhibition coming to Vancouver Arts Centre will cross the boundaries of art and community as it invites you to rediscover regional Western Australia.

The exhibition, which opens on Wednesday, July 5, explores the idea of ‘collective memory’ as a source of competing narratives through which communities create new visions of their present and future and features new works in sculpture, photography, painting, installation, video and digital media.

Spaced 2: future recall showcases works from 12 acclaimed international and Australian contemporary artists which demonstrate the artistic, cultural and social outcomes of the second edition of spaced, a recurring international event of socially engaged art.

Spaced was conceived and is coordinated by International Art Space and works to bring together international and Australian artists within communities throughout Western Australia to explore the relationship between globalisation and local identity.

Since its inception in 1998, International Art Space has run more than 100 residency-based projects by artists from more than 20 countries and organised four national touring exhibitions.

The exhibition will open on Wednesday, July 5 and will run until Saturday, September 2 at Vancouver Arts Centre.
