Come and hear stories of how works for The Visitors exhibition, a series of monumental photographic images and immersive audio-visual experiences, were created over three years and enlisted countless community members from Central Australia in its realisation. Each photo, a “happening”, an immersive performance piece, a socially engaged artwork with a big process . The resulting works, epic in scale and production, combine humour with serious intent in a compelling and reflective way, drawing attention to prescient global issues through a potent local prism. The exhibition heralded a watershed moment in her artistic practice is a major contribution to the breadth of Australian cultural expression.
Join Franca Barraclough for her Artist Talk on Sunday, 18 December, 11am, at the Collie Art Gallery.
