Home Town: artist & community ambition on an international stage

An Artsource & UWA Cultural Precinct Symposium

Home Town is a one-day symposium which explores the relationship between artists and communities in the realisation of ambitious site-specific artworks. It considers existing international and local projects; their history, impact and significance for local communities. The discussion will consider artist driven projects and the paradox of permanence for art in a shifting cultural context. The day also considers artmaking in a local/global context and particular art experiences and projects which have been made extraordinary through the agency of communities.

Speakers: James Angus (New York, USA), Gary Dufour (Perth, WA), Jonathon Kimberley (Hobart, TAS), Anne Loxley (Sydney, NSW), Tess Maunder (Brisbane, QLD), Margaret Moore (Perth, WA), Lisa Roet (Melbourne, VIC), Ian Strange (New York, USA), Curtis Taylor (Western Desert, WA).

Artsource and UWA Cultural Precinct would like to thank the Ian Potter Foundation, The University of Notre Dame and the City of Fremantle for their generous support of Home Town.
