AUSTRALIA. NEW SOUTH WALES. Edge of Elsewhere, a major three-year project in Sydney
13/02/2012 16:29:25

Edge of Elsewhere is a three year project engaging with the diverse cultural mix of suburban Sydney. Leading international and Australian artists have been commissioned by Campbelltown Arts Centre and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art to produce new work in partnership with Sydney’s communities as part of Sydney Festival's program. For the past three years, thirteen artists from across Asia, Australia, and the Pacific have developed significant projects that challenge how we think about contemporary community-engaged practice.

In its final year, Edge of Elsewhere showcases some of the most exciting contemporary artists from across Australia, Asia and the Pacific in specially commissioned works developed with Sydney communities.

Participating artists include Brook Andrew, Arahmaiani, Richard Bell, Dacchi Dang, Newell Harry, FX Harsono, Shigeyuki Kihara, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Lisa Reihana, Khaled Sabsabi, Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Michel Tuffery and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES.

Edge of Elsewhere is curated by Lisa Havilah and Aaron Seeto. Exhibition will be on view at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art from 14 January - 3 March 2012 and at Campbelltown Arts Centre from 14 January – 18 March 2012. For more information, please visit www.4a.com.au or  www.campbelltown.nsw.gov.au
