Australian exhibition featuring Peltz work travels the country

Crossing the boundaries of art, history and community, spaced 2: future recall [at the Western Australian Museum – Perth] invites viewers to rediscover regional Western Australia from the viewpoint of 14 acclaimed international and Australian contemporary artists.

spaced 2: future recall is an international group exhibition on view from February 19 through March 29 [continuing on to venues throughout the country] that showcases the artistic, cultural and social outcomes of the second edition of spaced, a recurring international event of socially engaged art. The exhibition draws together works made by Australian and overseas artists who lived and worked for extended periods in Western Australian rural and remote communities throughout 2013-14, developing new works based on an engagement with local residents, histories and landscapes.

Participating artists include Prospectus contributor Daniel Peltz (Associate Professor, Film/Animation/Video) (Unrealized Gain/Loss); Australian artists Michael Bullock, Erin Coates + Anna Nazzari, Lily Hibberd and John Mateer; Archana Hande (India); Jay Koh (Singapore/Germany); Pia Lanzinger (Germany); Maddie Leach (New Zealand); Tea Mäkipää (Finland); Daphne Major (The Netherlands); and Ruben Santiago (Spain).

Daniel’s works in the exhibition relate to his 30-minute opera about the Australian mining town of Tom Price.
