ENGAGING VISIONS    YOUR PLACE IN FINE ART

RECEPTION: 6pm Thursday 5th August, continues until 28th August 2010 Opening Speaker: Professor Ian Chubb, Vice-Chancellor, The Australian National University.

Engaging Visions: Your Place in Fine Art, brings together artwork inspired by four Engaging Visions Research Project (EV Project) Field Study programs that took place in the Murray Darling Basin between 2007 – 09 in St George, Qld; Tumut, NSW; Riverland, SA; and Benalla, Vic. These programs, convened by the Environment Studio, ANU School of Art, involved students, visiting artists, staff and alumni. Several artists resident in the field locations joined the programs. The ANU School of Music Contemporary Music Ensemble participated in the Benalla Study.
The EV Project evaluated Field Studies as a tool for facilitating the engagement of artists with Basin communities to visualise the environment as fine art. The evaluation component was undertaken by the ANU Centre for Public Awareness of Science.
In all, 63 artists took part in the EV Project and contributed to exhibitions that concluded the Field Study programs. Catalogues for these exhibitions can be viewed at: www.racket.net.au/clients/engagingvisions
Engaging Visions: Your Place in Fine Art, presents the work of 31 of these artists.
Engaging Visions. Engaging Artists with the Community about the Environment, the EV Project book published for general readership, presents an overview of the EV Project. The book also serves as a catalogue for the exhibition and will be launched at the exhibition opening. It can be downloaded after 5th August, 2010, from the following sites:
