BLAK CURATORIAL EXCHANGE

BY BLAKLASH PROJECTS

Metro Arts has partnered with Blaklash to deliver a six-week professional development program for six Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who are interested in developing their curatorial skills. Led by Blaklash, this program aims to strengthen the sector by enhancing knowledge, support networks, and developing practical skills through an exhibition outcome.
 
The program will include presentations from industry experts and guided visits to a range of art institutions. It will be an opportunity to have critical discussions regarding First Nations voices and perspectives and how they are represented in gallery spaces. The curatorial exchange will culminate in a one-week exhibition at Metro Arts, Gallery One at West Village in November.
 
Blaklash Creative is led by Troy Casey (Kamiliroi) and Amanda Hayman (Wakka Wakka/Kalkadoon) an agency known for their curatorial skills in creating positive experiences that connect people to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and culture.
