About The Collections Project:
We invite individual artists and artist teams to apply to research and develop new ambitious work in response to FUMA’s Australian Political Poster & Print collection. The project will culminate in both a curated exhibition in the FUMA Gallery and a printed catalogue, as a part of SALA 2024.
A propositional title and rationale provided by FUMA Collections Curator Nic Brown – The Disquiet – is a reflection on the alternative cultural movements and political activism of the 1970s documented in FUMA’s Australian Political Poster & Print Collection. Artists have opportunity to access the collection and curatorial professionals from December 2023, with a mixture of both remote and in-person research continuing in early 2024.
