Go West

The fantastic Western Plains Cultural Centre at Dubbo has long been a popular gallery for Object’s touring exhibitions, and the latest that I am up here installing this week is Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels exhibition; the eighth in our Living Treasures series.

Art + Tech and everything else

Last night we joined the crowd at General Assembly’s pop-up event space for Art + Tech: How Tech is Disrupting the Art World.

Thanks again to Ivan Vysotskiy, Lukasz Karluk, Claire Evans, and last night’s moderator Gabby Shaw.
