Running from March 11-26, SafARI 2016 will present a variety of practices spanning sound, installation, text, digital/online, and performance, across multiple venues and platforms centred in Kings Cross and Paddington.
SafARI is a zeitgeist-based Australian Arts program timed to coincide with the opening weeks of the Biennale of Sydney. Showcasing the work of emerging and unrepresented artists, SafARI is presented in Artist Run Intiative spaces and independent Sydney venues. By zeitgeist we mean that we support the current and critical channel of thought and practice that emerging and independent artists are producing in. We want to be engaged and not didactic or instructional.
Please explore our website material as if its a folder of information on our Artists, Writers, Spaces and our program. Searching the name of any artist should bring up everything we have on them and what they are doing for SafARI 2016. Note: searches are cap sensitive, so we didnt use any.
Peter Nelson's work is available through his link that is always up above from March.
Our online venue at Runway houses two of our Artists (Grace Blake and Danny Wild as well as Guillaume Savy). We are so proud to be working with Runway on our collaborative issue: ECOLOGIES.
Our venues are close together, the lines of contact/passage drawn in our map to help you get around. Mimicing and celebrating how independant art practices and spaces opperate in Sydney we are excited to present SafARI 2016.
