Main Gallery: 7 November 2008 - 11 January 2009


Text/Object on display in the Main Gallery, 2008-09

Collaboration is the theme of text/object, an exhibition showcasing work by staff from the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Charles Sturt University. Curated by Dr Johannes Klabbers, this exhibition breaks away from the traditional focus on individual arts practice. Instead, artists, designers and performers have been invited to work with each other and with members of the local, national and international arts community to explore new directions beyond their comfort zones.

Text/object builds on the strong connections between Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Charles Sturt University, as the third and largest exhibition of works by SVPA staff, following on from Transference in 2000 and conduit in 2005. This exhibition shows the great range and diversity of creative practices being taught, studied and researched at the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Charles Sturt University, and reflects the fact that the participants in text/object are committed to maintaining professional careers as practitioners whilst working as educators.
