SHOTGUN 2014 Publication Launch
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Shotgun is a flexible exhibition and curatorial model designed to deliver targeted support and opportunity to Tasmanian artists. Beginning in 2010 this series of projects is the outcome of a significant public private collaboration between Detached Cultural Organisation and Contemporary Art Tasmania.
The 2014 artists: Ross Byers, Dean Chatwin, David Hawley, Jason James, Tom O’Hern and Nicola Smith have participated in a program formulated to assist each artist with their goals. This year there is no exhibition associated with Shotgun and resources have been directed towards a ‘stepped-up’ industry access program and publication.
Publication writers Hannah Mathews (VIC), Quentin Sprague (VIC) and Jasmin Stephens (NSW) have been joined in the 2014 program by Jackie Dunn (NSW), Alexander Godschalk (Netherlands), Kylie Johnson (TAS), Craig Judd (NSW), Daniel Mudie Cunningham (NSW), Brianna Munting (NSW) and Geoff Newton (VIC) . The program has involve studio visits, meetings, workshops and discussion events.
