8 Artists is a model for collaboration between artists with and without disability that extends beyond the traditional mentor-mentee relationship. It shifts the power dynamic to one of equal collaboration where artists create shared work that is reflective of each other’s skills, ideas and practice.
The project has been developed over an extended period of consultation between Eastern Riverina Arts, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and Kurrajong Warratah since October 2010. 8 Artists has been delivered in four phases: proposal, exchange, creation and exhibition between July 2012 and May 2013.
8 Artists presents a contemporary art exhibition with exciting new work from Wayne Emerson + Jeff McCann, Angela Coombs Matthews + Kellie Hulm, Vic McEwan + Scott Lea and Jacqui Meyers + Julia Davies
