2010 Publication

A 144-page full-colour hardcover publication designed by Boccalatte (http://www.boccalatte.com) was produced and published by Campbelltown Arts Centre to accompany this first exhibition of the project. The publication comprised seven original essays from the curatorial team and independent writers including Sunil Badami, Farid Farid, Binghui Huangfu and Dr Catriona Moore. The essays covered aspects of the project’s curatorial premise, historical analysis and contemporary perspectives on community engaged arts projects, analysis of featured art works, and perspectives on the cultural landscape of Western Sydney. Three Q&A format interviews with project artists were also included, along with a large quantity of images of art work in the exhibition and documentation of performative works.

The publication was awarded a Graphis Gold Award 2010. (http://www.graphis.com/latest/winners/annuals/design/?book=53&utm_source=ConstantContact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=DES2011_WinnersList)

Edge of Elsewhere was launched first at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art on 14 January 2010, followed the next day by the project launch at Campbelltown Arts Centre.

The launch presented two special performances by Pacific community groups in Campbelltown, the Samoan group Fetu O Le Moana, and the Tongan group Matangi Tonga, the latter having worked collaboratively with Newell Harry to produce a performative outcome that engaged with the artist’s installation work presented at Campbelltown Arts Centre.
