island salon (co-curated with Angela Garrick and Sophie Kitson)

 

island salon is a collaborative project expanding the scope of Australian experimental arts practice and engagement, uniting a band of female artists across a broad spectrum of media in an immersive, island-inspired cinema experience. island salon celebrates a polyphonic Australian woman’s voice. A constellation of imaginings, reverie beyond genre. Cultural politics in the public sphere. Cicatrice of many, psychic, queer.
