Newcastle Museum x Critical Animals – Museum Collection Intervention Opportunity for Artists and Writers
Critical Animals is thrilled to be able to announce that they will be presenting our contributing artists, researchers and writers the opportunity to create new works that respond to objects within the Newcastle Museum’s collection and to present their resulting work within the Museum throughout the TiNA weekend.
They are looking for proposals for new works to be created that respond to the Museum’s collection, some of which are available on display in the Museum, with a full catalogue available online here at the Museum’s collection catalogue. The resulting work will be performed, read, exhibited or screened as a program within the Museum, activating the Museum’s exhibition space.
The Newcastle Museum has an extensive collection encompassing a broad range of social history relating directly to Newcastle’s history and the broader Australian story. Iconic objects, artworks and extensive archives of photographs and ephemera from the Hunter region have been collected, researched and housed within the collection which is carefully curated into the insightful, educational and entertaining exhibitions held within the Museum
Successful applicants will work alongside the Critical Animals team and the Newcastle Museum to develop and present a response to the museum archive and architecture, to be presented as a public program within the Museum.
