Facilitated by Meredith Turnbull and c3 Projects
Material Exchange explores an expanded notion of mentorship, examining how influences and ideas flow in a reciprocal manner between artists. These relations flow up and across, rather than simply via the conventional path of mentor to mentee. Facilitated by Meredith Turnbull with c3 Projects, presented as three discrete exhibitions the project draws out and further expands on the points of convergence and departure evident in the practices of the participating artists, including: political and material approaches to making; conceptual and thematic research as both the material of and impetus for the creation of artworks; an engagement with concepts such as environment through matter, place and ecologies; and a critique and examination of systems from within social relations, art history and politics.
Material Exchange is a part of c3’s larger 2017 Professional Development and Mentorship program. This program includes over 12 projects and 25 featured artists.
