Over The Barricade
(with Peter Burke)
Corflute, acrylic, wood
A tongue-in-cheek picket line installed to coincide with the 'Spectres of Evaluation' conference. The slogans on the placards playfully engage with the issues addressed in the program of papers presented at the conference. Our aim was to draw attention to the paradoxes and questions raised by socially engaged art practices; the disjunction between art, audiences and art language; and to highlight gaps and overlaps between art and real life.
Exhibited in 'Spectres of Evaluation' at Footscray Community Arts Centre and simultaneously at Incinerator Gallery, Moonee Ponds (February 2014)
