Exhibiting Your Work
Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Exposé Program for 2017 announced
The Exposé selection process was extremely competitive. Close to fifty applications were received, of which three have been selected to form part of the Exposé Exhibition Program shown in 2017. Now in its fourth year, the Exposé Exhibition Program has showcased more than thirty-two local Blue Mountains artists in fourteen Exposé exhibitions.
The selected artists are:
Heidi Axelsen and Hugo Moline with ‘The Visitors’ (working title)
The Visitors is a new installation work incorporating sculptural devices to enable new means of encounter and exchange between the human and botanical worlds.
Leahlani Johnson with ‘However late it may seem’ (working title)
A site specific installation investigating the paradoxical nature of time including moving image, painting and ceramics.
Kurt Sorensen with ‘The Solitude is Desolation’ (working title)
Sorensen will create a photo-media installation based on interactions between European settlers, the Australian landscape and its indigenous inhabitants. The exhibition will draw on stories from the Blue Mountains region that portray the inherent fears and anxieties cultivated through the misunderstood landscape and its people.
The selected artists will exhibit in the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery Exposé Space during the period of May 2017 – January 2018. Up to four Exposé Exhibitions will be awarded.
ABOUT THE BLUE MOUNTAINS CULTURAL CENTRE EXPOSÉ EXHIBITION PROGRAM
The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Exposé Exhibition Program is an exciting initiative designed to give artists, Arts collectives and community groups based in the Blue Mountains region the opportunity to exhibit in the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery.
The Exposé Exhibition program was developed in response to the outstanding calibre of artistic practice in the Blue Mountains region. It provides local artists with an opportunity to exhibit in a professionally run public gallery space alongside exhibitions by significant national and international artists, to extend their artistic practice, and to maximise audience engagement.
Artists and arts collectives based in the Blue Mountains City Council Local Government Area are eligible to apply. Artists may work in any medium and may be emerging, established, or professional. Proposals from community groups in the region will also be considered for exhibition as part of the Exposé Program.
Blue Mountains Cultural Centre encourages artists to submit proposals that display excellence, innovation and vision. The Exposé Program represents an opportunity for local artists to develop exhibition concepts that consolidate current art practices, to showcase experimentation with new mediums or techniques, or to explore new themes and directions.
A panel of industry professionals and representatives from the Arts community will assess Exposé program exhibition proposals through a competitive process of application and selection. The inaugural Exposé Exhibition Program Panel comprises the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Director and Exhibitions Manager, a representative of the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre Establishment Committee and three community representatives.
Exposé Program submissions will be sought annually and scheduled for the following year to allow artists appropriate time to create their works for the exhibition.
