'Artivisms Now' at La Trobe Art Institute
After receiving La Trobe University’s Emerging Curator Award in 2017, I put together an exhibition at La Trobe Art Institute in Bendigo titled ‘Artivisms Now’.
Bringing together five artists with diverse practices coagulating over humour, critique and activism, ‘Artivisms Now’ is a staunch gesture of resistance through pride, and resilience. ‘Artivisms Now’ focuses on speaking directly to those affected by marginalisation through the use of inter-community visual and linguistic signs potentially identifiable to, but not for, the work’s intended audience.
