ART WORKS Artist in Residence
This exhibition by Callum Docherty will explore and capture moments of the city and its visitors through contemporary art practice. The project aims to showcase the City of Adelaide’s dynamic and vibrant culture, providing an opportunity to pause and reflect.
Callum’s most recent work has been informed by and created from processes such as the collection, observation and conservation of found objects, photographic documentation, and multidisciplinary collaboration with a focus on responding to site-specific materials and areas of interest. A series of participatory experiences will enable visitors to collaborate with Callum in art making including contributing to the photographic print series displayed across the front window of the Art Pod; looking at human forms and our presence in the urban environment; focusing on the intersecting elements such as architectural features and citizen behavioural patterns as observed within the City of Adelaide.
INTERSECTION will be driven by community engagement and will consider accessibility for all visitors.
ART WORKS is a collaborative program of residencies, curatorial mentorship and creative engagements, designed in partnership with the City of Adelaide to provide a city-based platform for artists, curators and writers to pursue new ways of working and engaging with audiences. Now in its sixth year, ART WORKS 2023 presents multiple Artist in Residence opportunities within the City of Adelaide ArtPOD and an Early Career Curator and Writer in Residence Program mentored by Guildhouse, presenting three exhibitions within the Adelaide Town Hall and Mankurri-api Kuu / Reconciliation Room.
These extensive artist engagements deliver on the City’s Cultural Strategy 2020-24 for Adelaide to be recognised as a cultural incubator where people, enterprises and audiences’ flourish.
ART WORKS is delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide.
