Dollars and [Non]sense - 3D virtual exhibition by Arts Project Australia

Dollars and [Non]sense

Thu, 10/08/2020 to Thu, 10/15/2020

curated by:

It’s the federal budget week in Australia and, while we don’t want to dwell on this rather dreary subject too long, it does give us pause to reflect, again, on what a roller-coaster year it has been. Not that we need any reminding, however, our recovery does require generating new cultural opportunities, jobs, and spending. And who better to lead this initiative with considerable flair, creative thinking and positivity than our artists and the arts.

For those winners in the 2020 budget, there are many ways to spend tax incentives online on all sorts of goods and services. Our call to action is for people to make a conscious decision to invest in culture and support local artists by putting dollars into contemporary art and craft, as well as online performances, music and creative workshops.

Prior to COVID-19, 98% of Australians engaged with the arts in some way and 68% attended live events, from the visual arts and crafts through to theatre, festivals and literary events, while 16% of the population surveyed were involved in community arts of one kind or another. 56% of people also reported that arts and creativity positively impact our sense of wellbeing and happiness. So there you have it.

Dollars and [Non]sense is an exhibition that responds to the federal budget week with some insights and abstract contemplation, as well as humour and nonsense. Focusing on work by Boris Cipusev, along with artists Peter Ben, Samraing Chea, Valerio Ciccone, Adrian Lazzaro, Julian Martin, Chris O'Brien, Gavin Porter, Josef Power, Paul Quick, Lisa Reid and Cathy Staughton.
