The Alternative Archive
TOURING WITH ART ON THE MOVE 2022-24
A dynamic anthology of regional arts practice
The Alternative Archive touring exhibition presents a contemporary visual archive of regional Western Australian arts practice, documenting a dynamic anthology of how regional artists relate to the people, homes, towns or regions that they know so well.
It showcases work by 28 contemporary artists selected from a series of regionally based exhibitions facilitated by local curators.
The Alternative Archive is the culmination of a three-year project involving 13 regional art galleries, 35 curators and 200 artists and is co-curated by John Curtin Gallery Director Chris Malcolm and Independent Curator/Artist Anna Louise Richardson. It aims to increase understanding of the arts ecology, the practices and conditions of regional art making in Western Australia.
