Moving Histories//Future Projections

On display until Sunday 12 May 2019 | Margaret Carnegie Gallery | Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, NSW. (Due to major flooring upgrades and repairs at the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, the Margaret Carnegie Gallery will be closed from Monday 25th March and will reopen on Saturday 6th April.)

Moving Histories // Future Projections brings together some of Australia’s leading female contemporary artists working across screen based media including Mikala Dwyer and Justene Williams, Amala Groom, Deborah Kelly, Kate Blackmore and Jacinta Tobin, Joan Ross, Soda_Jerk, Angelica Mesiti and Caroline Garcia.

This is an exhibition of screen-based works by Australian artists that explore the interplay between exploring the past and staging the present. The artists approach their subject in variety of ways, some turn the camera upon themselves and those around them to revisit historical events. Other artists examine the complex relationship between race, privilege and cultural dislocation in a post-colonial Australian context.

Curated by Kelly Doley and Diana Smith of collaborative artist group, Barbara Cleveland, the exhibition explores invisible pasts, forgotten narratives and repressed memories, reminding us how history is fractured by race, class and gender.
