A TRAVELLING LABORATORY PROGRAM FOR INTERDISCIPLINARY AND EXPERIMENTAL ARTISTS 25 SEPTEMBER - 12 OCTOBER 2014
A travelling laboratory program for interdisciplinary and experimental artists.
Time_Place_Space: Nomad is a national initiative that aims to challenge, invigorate and strengthen interdisciplinary and experimental arts practice in Australia, with an emphasis on collaborative performance-making, site-specificity and artistic resilience, following on from the original versions of the Time_Place_Space program (TPS 1-6) that were produced by Performance Space from 2002-2009, and curated collaboratively by Fiona Winning (Performance Space), Sarah Miller (PICA), Julianne Pierce (ANAT) and Teresa Crea (New Media Arts Fellow, founding Director Para//elo).
The program, among other things sought to seed new artistic collaborations and productions with the capacity to tour nationally and internationally; build new networks for artists, curators and presenters; broaden and diversify audiences; and establish an international reputation for artists working in this field.
The original laboratory programs were set in institutional, university and technically well-resourced urban contexts. This new iteration of TPS goes camping on the road, from city to countryside and asks artists to consider economic issues, scarcity and transience, urbanity, remoteness and nationhood, the bare necessities of life and art-making in an unfixed and ever-changing environment. This program is collaboratively curated by Bec Dean (Performance Space) and Angharad Wynne-Jones (Artshouse, City of Melbourne).
Key questions stimulated by this model include:
– What resources do you really need to make your work?
– What is your understanding of time, place and space in an Australian context?
– In what ways is your work or your working process experimental and can this be challenged?
– Do you factor any green or sustainment thinking into your performance making?
– Do you have the capacity to live and work with others in communal and personally limiting circumstances?
– Who is and where is your audience or participants for your work? How do they encounter and engage with your work?
