The Cross Art Project and Kandos Museum present the exhibition ‘Obsolete?’. Artists Nicole Barakat, Aleshia Lonsdale and Fiona MacDonald use imagination and investigatory flair to showcase counter or subaltern history.
For the exhibition Obsolete? they consider a small community museum in Kandos, on the western slopes of central NSW, to tell stories of the conflicting histories embedded in innocently obsolete objects or habituated omissions housed therein. What stories are and are not being told here?
This exhibition will be closed with a special conversation ‘Mapping Massacres’, with Professor Lyndall Ryan, from the University of Newcastle, who has recently launched her project of mapping Indigenous massacres that occurred during the spread of Australian colonisation.
When: The exhibition will run from Saturday 12 August to Saturday 9 September 2017.
Opening hours: 11:00am–6:00pm Thursday to Saturday
Professor Ryan’s closing conversation: Saturday 9 September 2:00-3:00pm.
Where: The Cross Art Projects, 8 Llankelly Lane, Kings Cross
