Moving Histories // Future Projections

  • Broken Hill Regional Gallery 404-408 Argent Street Broken Hill, NSW, 2880 Australia (map)

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

Moving Histories // Future Projections is an exhibition of screen-based works by Australian artists exploring the interplay between portraying the past and staging the present. As Farocki and Ujicã suggest, film, and, by its extension video and other time-based mediums, have long been used to make history present. In the context of this exhibition, the space of the video screen becomes a place to produce new temporalities and understandings of the past.
