Come along to the library to hear Soula Veyradier introduce the program and welcome Ella Sutherland to Margaret River. Find out how the whole community can be a part of this exciting project.
International Art Space is a leading West Australian arts organisation, presenting a program of ambitious and dynamic socially engaged and context-responsive art. They create diverse and challenging experiences for artists and communities through contemporary visual art. The program focuses on the idea of “Rural Utopias” and includes 15 artists from Australia, USA, Italy, UK, Austria and Indonesia.
As part of this program, Sydney-based Artist Ella Sutherland will spend six weeks in Margaret River. Over the course of her residency, the artist will draw on archival material, print techniques, experimental typography and collaborative working methodologies to develop a collection of forms that will constitute a new 26-character alphabet. The resulting font will be exhibited and reinserted back into circulation in the form of collaboratively developed short texts. More information about Spaced 4 can be found at – HERE
