THE INDEPENDENCE PROJECT

Identity, Publication Design, Print Collateral

Uniting artists from Australia and Malaysia, The Independence Project explored notions of independence; creatively, politically and socially. Featuring a wide range of disciplines and encompassing residencies, publications and workshops, each country’s creative contribution was compared and shared through two major exhibitions – the first at the Galerie Poltronas in Kuala Lumpur and the second at the Gertrude Contemporary in Melbourne.

This project sought to explore how and why artists produce their work and the entanglements they encounter when striving to make themselves understood.
