EOIS FOR HOBART CURRENT: EPOCH NOW CLOSED
Thank you to those that submitted applications for Hobart Current: Epoch, we had a tremendous response to the callout out and Chris Twite, the Creative Director is now reviewing all the submissions. Artists will be notified in April as to the outcome of their application.
Speaking of Epoch, Chris says:
"We live in interesting times, plunged into global upheaval, shaken by local change and challenged to personally reflect. Like never before we have been given the opportunity to take stock of our lives, our beliefs and our actions as individuals, communities, and nations."
"As we step forth into 2023, one thing is certain, we know that it is a doorway and through it lies a new epoch. A new era that will define us for another generation."
"As we pass through towards this new future there is room for nostalgia and cynicism for the past just as there is for hope and indignation for the future but nothing will be the same."
"I want to encourage artists to look as much to the world as to themselves and their neighbours, to examine their stories and to spark conversations on who we have been and who we will become in this next great era."
Ten artists will be commissioned as part of Epoch. The final works will be installed in TMAG and sites specifically in Hobart in March 2023.
