Moving Histories // Future Projections

Turning the camera on themselves, artists Mikala Dwyer and Justene Williams, Amala Groom, Deborah Kelly, Kate Blackmore and Jacinta Tobin, Joan Ross, Soda_Jerk, Angelica Mesiti and Caroline Garcia have created screen-based works to uncover invisible pasts, forgotten narratives and repressed memories – a reminder that history is fractured by race, class and gender. The artists take up ‘the role of historian, archivist and archaeologist, using the camera and the screen to excavate historical materials and reanimate archives,’ say curators Diana Smith and Kelly Doley.
