Featuring loans and new commissions by Cigdem Aydemir, Simon Cooper, Cherine Fahd, Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano, Sara Oscar, Patrick Pound, Julie Rrap, Ronnie van Hout, William Yang and curated by Fahd and Rrap, this exhibition provokes a new understanding of the self and other.
I will tell you my story is a group exhibition curated by Talia Smith that engages with some of the 800+ artworks in the UTS Art Collection to consider how the collection can be re-read in light of the present, challenged as an archive, and imagined anew.
Continuing our UTS Art Live project, Sydney collective Make or Break (Connie Anthes and Rebecca Gallo) will collaborate with UTS students on Citizen J, a project of citizen journalism which questions the ethics and origins of news in an age of misinformation.
Our 2021 Artists in Residence, Amala Groom and Sidney McMahon, will work alongside UTS researchers to develop new work and will share the development of their work alongside UTS researchers in programs held throughout the year.
Finally, we are pleased to announce that Kent Morris has been awarded the 2021 UTS Digital commission. His work Barkindji Blue Sky – Ancestral Connections will join commissions by Cigdem Aydemir, The Mulka Project, Daniel Crooks and Grant Stevens and digital work from the UTS Art Collection by Angela Tiatia and Daniel Boyd on the UTS Broadway Screen.
