July 27 to Sept 3 Creative Accounting. Drawing from old currencies, banking archives and contemporary art, Creative Accounting scratches below the surface of our economic system to reveal money’s enigmatic side. Money is many things at once: an abstract rendering of value; an agent of propaganda; a decorative device. It plays a central role in all of our lives yet is often overlooked as an object of contemplation. At a time when money is becoming increasingly abstract Creative Accounting speculates on its wider value. Curated by Holly Williams, in conjunction with Hawkesbury Regional Gallery and toured by Museums and Galleries of NSW. This project is supported by Arts NSW’s Curatorial Support Initiative grant, a devolved funding program administered by Museums and Galleries of NSW on behalf of the NSW Government. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
