GPG PROJECT SPACES LOGO

The GPG PROJECT SPACES CURATOR’S PROGRAM  focuses on curatorial practice in alternative spaces.  The program pushes for risk taking and experimentation.  It prioritises projects that address the public space of Union House, and its context within the University of Melbourne.  Each exhibition runs for one month across all three alternative spaces, with a closing celebration the final Wednesday of the exhibition.

Second Life: Conserving Experience examines the importance of everyday things and the memories attached to them. Photographs, toys, teacups, and games provide material evidence of culture, community and family – linking our contemporary life to the past, and to formative experiences with people we love.

 

Big thanks to The Break Room for their sustainably-sourced shattered ceramics; Charity Bramwell and Nick Dorrer for installation support; and Katrina Watson for her technological know-how.
