NIDAnights: ITERATION With The Suburban Review

Venue: NIDA Melbourne | Suite 4 | 152 Sturt Street, Southbank, VIC 3006
Date/Time: 18 Oct 2018 - 18 Oct 2018

Exploring the potential of different media, while questioning the performative boundaries of visual arts, The Suburban Review's ITERATION asks 'Can visual art be performed?' Collaboration is a powerful space for growth and inspiration, and this event fosters critical partnerships between artists of different media. Connecting with upcoming digital issue The Suburban Review #12: ITERATION, this evening will feature work by writers and artists of colour.

Visual artists and writers meet at the boundary of inspiration and reflection. Each writer is paired with a visual artist, both of whom produce two works. In each pair, both produce an original work, and then produce an ‘ekphrastic’ response to their partner’s creation.

Combining exhibition with performance, the 12 new works will be displayed and performed and will mark the launch for The Suburban Review #12: ITERATION.

ITERATION has been creatively produced by Anupama Pilbrow and her dedicated team at The Suburban Review who were winners of the NIDA curatorial takeover initiative, Seize the Space!
