For fifteen months, from December 2020 to March 2022, local curator/writer Judith Parker participated in monthly Zoom meetings with a group of women artists in Australia, the USA, and India. The project was initiated and organized by Andrea Przygonski, an artist and curator who lives in Adelaide. Nine pairs of creators – each person in the pair on a different continent – worked collaboratively on their artworks which ultimately resulted in an exhibition in Adelaide, Sister City II_Change. An Intercontinental Collaborative Project in April 2022 at Praxis Artspace. Judith wrote an exhibition essay for the catalogue. You can find images of all the artworks here: https://www.praxisartspace.com/4648-2/
Not surprisingly, many of the works of art in this exhibition touch on climate change. Ria Links thanks Judith for accepting our invitation to ask Andrea and some of the participating artists in Sister City II to join our Zoom Salon and talk about their experiences with this project. View and participate in this Salon and meet our local speaker, Judith Parker in a virtual meeting in the comfort of your home.
Sign up to attend by emailing Petra, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention Zoom Only.
Our Zoom list is limited to 100, which includes presenters and artists from abroad. We will cap the local registration at 50, with a waiting list if needed.
Hope to see many of you!
