An International Exchange Project with West Space, Melbourne, Australia

Transaction was a visual arts exchange project involving eight artists from six different countries. Each artist began by contributing a piece of work. The work was then posted to another artist, who made a work in response to the piece received, and then in turn repackaged and sent it to another artist. Artists were asked to consider the interpretation of their work as it travelled to different parts of the world. Similar to the serial nature of “chain letters”, the project resulted in seven sets of chain art works reeling the global nature of transaction. This project was also included in the programme for the New Wave Festival 1998 in Melbourne.

Transaction was an international exchange project based on eight artists from Australia and overseas creating art in response to each other. The project involved the exchange of artworks in the post and dialogue through e-mail. The Transaction catalogue combines images and written material generated from the various communication exchanges between participants.

 

Thanks to the generous support of a Project Grant from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, we will be adding more information and archival materials for this exhibition.
