Artworks and Exchanges Exhibition Program

Artworks and Exchanges explores the ‘social turn’ in contemporary art by showcasing new and re-presented community-engaged art works. This exhibition is part of the Spectres of Evaluation conference, presented by the Centre for Cultural Partnerships, University of Melbourne and Footscray Community Arts Centre. 

Spanning two sites connected by the Maribyrnong River – Footscray Community Arts Centre and the Incinerator Gallery - the program explores tensions that exist among representational practices of art (exhibition, object, performance, presentation) that address social engagement in both form and content (intervention, interruption, event, exchange). 


3 – 9 February 2014, The Incinerator Gallery, 180 Holmes Road, Moonee Ponds

10 – 22 February 2014, Roslyn Smorgan Gallery, Footscray Community Arts Centre, 45 Moreland Street, Footscray
