Making Space: Institutional Invisibilities 

Join us for an informal panel discussion with creatives and cultural workers from the Second Echo Ensemble, Performing Lines Tasmania, and Midnight Feast.

This panel highlights the various ways that cultural organisations are changing the landscape of representation, and considers many questions: how can allies within institutions help make space for underrepresented artists and collectives? How do we surface and empower invisible identities? How do we move towards an ecosystem of care for the cultural sector today?

Public program presented as part of the exhibition Motion Sensor at the Plimsoll GallerySupported by the Australia Council through the Arts Leaders Program Alumni Fund.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

More about the speakers


MOTION SENSOR is a new multi-year creative laboratory series of experimental visual art and performance programs, exploring how artists navigate the complexities of fixed domains.

Each year, we invite artists and creative practitioners to present a current work in development, experimenting across art forms, revealing to us their practices of code-switching and navigating the complexities of containers that simultaneously hold us but also contain us. Through a series of cross-art form investigations, artists in this iteration of MOTION SENSOR interrogates institutional inertias, gender generalisations, cultural cacophonies, and people perceptions.

Artists: Luke John Campbell, Stephanie Jack, and Dexter Rosengrave.

Curators: Jane Barlow and Caine Chennatt
