Irene Briant - A Survey
This large survey exhibition of over 50 works covered nearly 40 years of Tasmanian artist Irene Briant's career from the late 70s.
Supported by the Minister for the Arts through Arts Tasmania, the Gordon Darling Foundation, Salamanca Arts Centre and the Bett Gallery.
My role? As Curator, I initiated the project, wrote and acquitted the grants, worked with Irene to select the works for exhibition and managed the exhibition timeline, development and installation.
I also edited the catalogue, and worked with Raum Studio and Monotone Art Printers to produce a gorgeous publication, as well as writing the main essay. The exhibition was initiated while I was Creative Producer at Salamanca Arts Centre and continued as an independent curator after Nov 17.
Copies of the exhibition catalogue are available directly from this website for purchase at $10 each (plus postage).
68pp including essays by Frances Butler (curator), Sylvia Kleinert and notes by Irene Briant, images of all exhibited works, and artist's chronology.
