2020 Program ForecastOpening: 13th February 2020 Dates: Feb-Dec, 2020
Bus Projects is a dynamic platform for encounters with new art and discourse. We support Australian artists to make and show work on their own terms. Our 2020 program in our new venue at the Collingwood Arts Precinct (CAP) engages with a broad gamut of cultural production including exhibitions, events, discussions, publications, education programs, performances, inter-organisational collaboration and community co-production.
We are delighted to be working the following artists throughout 2020: Glenn Barkley, Torika Bolatagici, Moorina Bonini, Sandra Bridie, Gabi Briggs, John Brooks, Arini Byng, Kat Capel, Kirby Casilli, Layla Cluer, Georgina Criddle, Caitlin Cummane, Melissa Deerson, Kelly Doley, Nic Dowse, Eleanor Duffin, Jessie French, Laura Gonzalez Saavedra, Nayuka Gorrie, Katherine Hattem, Christopher L G Hill, Aaron Hoffman, Rachael Hooper, Lichen Kelp, Shelley Lasica, Eugenia Lim, Clare Longley, Nunzio Madden, Nicholas Mangan, Anna McDermott, Hattie Molloy, Zhu Ohmu, Dtarneen Onus-Williams, Sarah Pannell, Stanislava Pinchuk, Claudia Phares, Boris Portnoy, Lucreccia Quintanella, Amaara Raheem, JD Reforma, Aaron Christopher Rees, Dell Stewart, Yaya Sung, Snack Syndicate, Chris Weir, Mashara Wachjudy, Luigi Vescio and Dennese Victoria.
We work closely with our local community, embracing non-institutional, self-organised approaches to education. Our programs will enable artists and arts professionals to become creative collaborators and co-producers with diverse communities, resulting in long-term collaborations and sustained knowledge sharing.
We deliver programming through Concentric Curriculum,a parallel-school program embracing non-institutional, self-organised approaches to education; Island Island, our online platform that presents a program of commissioned arts and writing projects; Systems of Solidarity, our series of discussions focusing on topics of socio-political urgency; ‘Departed Acts’ our performance lecture series exploring memory as a subjective force; and our ongoing series of public programs, including artist talks, performances, and film screenings.
We will utilise our new expanded venue within the CAP campus to partner with a range of like-minded organisations including: Arts Access, Arts Project Australia, Barpirdhila Foundation, Boxcopy, Cool Change Contemporary, Liquid Architecture, Metro Arts, Public Office, RMIT, Social Studio, the Australian Video Art Agency, the Wilin Centre, un Projects, and West Space. We will focus on creating networks and examine different ways of working together, combining our knowledge and resources to discover what we can do together that we could not do alone.
