Splinters Exhibition planning

As the end of 2011 approaches and the seminars are out the way, it’s time get stuck into the proposal for an exhibition of art and artists associated with Splinters to be curated by José Robertson, planned for the Centenary of Canberra in 2013. Amazing visual elements were of course a trademark with a number of key members having trained at the Canberra School of Art including Stuart Vaskess, Clint Hurrell, Lindsay Dunbar and Ross Cameron. Video artworks by Luhsun Tan were an integral part of many performances and the superb photography of Katherine Pepper and ‘pling remains a major source of inspiration for this project.

We’re hoping to use a venue with some historical association with Splinters, which has scope to show some of the larger works such as Clint’s Light Crystals (seen at left in this photo by ‘pling from in Utopia/Dystopia, 1995, Springbank Island), as well as a suitable space to show the documentary film being planned. If anyone has works by Splinters artists they would like to put forward for inclusion, let us know.
