Exhibition Premise
IDENTIFY will feature established and emerging Australian artists, students and hobbyists in the fields of expanded ceramics and printmaking from within the University of New South Wales Art and Design (UNSW) student body, Hawkesbury Printmakers Inc (HPI) members and a Blue Mountains based ceramicist. The intention behind merging communities set apart both geographically (however within NSW) and professionally (student, emerging, established, hobbyist) exists out of curator Katherine Kennedy’s relations with both locals and peoples and the desire to see them benefit one another via exchange.

The selected artists, in response to the theme IDENTIFY, have submitted diverse works with two and three dimensional printmaking, suspended ceramics,  a live performance on opening night by Stella Chen, “The vessel of nature”, a recorded musical performance and physical installation by Shiling Wu, “Throwing notes” and an introductory speech by leading Australian (and world renowned) printmaker and UNSW Art and Design faculty member, Michael Kempson.

By including both the honorable guest speaker and performance in the opening night and exhibition program, this ‘prompts meetings and invites appointments, managing its own temporal structure’ and emphasizes ‘the growing importance of the opening as part of the exhibition program’ (Bourriaud 1998, p. 30). So do please come along and enjoy the ephemeral/fleeting nature that such an event produces.
