SW TAFE Graduating Exhibition

The annual South West TAFE (SW TAFE) Visual Arts Graduating Exhibition showcases the bold and diverse practices that are bustling in South West Victoria. This group show is a glimpse into the processes and conceptual developments of each exhibiting student, orchestrated under one coherent and tactile space. The high calibre of works on display reflect this critical moment in their career, as they transition from student to thriving emerging artist, and begin their respective journeys.

Currency is a new screendance made with a group of local Warrnambool dancers spanning 6 decades in age, from teens to sixties. It explores questions of ageing and visibility in girls and women, and represents ageing as ambiguous and slippery, as movement along a current or continuum of time. Challenging fixed ideas of ‘old’ and ‘young,’ it also considers issues of ageing and cultural currency, the desire to be visible or to disappear, and the experience of our physical bodies as simultaneously architecturally formal and illusory.
