Date: 09-Jun-2012 – 18-Jul-2012
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
3 gallery projects by artist-initiated organisations from Tasmania
The Establishment series of projects includes exhibitions, talks, performance, publications and social gatherings. Inflight (Hobart), Taxonomy (Hobart) and Sawtooth (Launceston) will each ‘take-over’ the CAST gallery for a period of one-week (7 days) to curate a gallery-based project of their choice.
Establishment was principally devised to promote thinking about different forms of exhibition and curatorship within Tasmania while providing an opportunity for artist-initiated organisations to influence the gallery programming of the institution that is CAST.
