The ArtLAB Project @ NRCG

artlabImmerse yourself in the ‘art’ of ‘art’ this October with a range of thought-provoking gallery programs that delve into the meaning, motivation and outcomes of contemporary art practice.

Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) partners with Lennox Arts Board Inc (LAB) and Southern Cross University (SCU) Curatorial Lab to present the inaugural ArtLAB Project.

The dynamic program includes a range of exhibitions and public programs that promise to stimulate the mind and the senses.

Three exhibitions, Animal Logic by current Honours students of SCU, Strange Little Attractors by Susie Marcroft, and Mystic Misfits by Leo Coyte, each individually explore links between human and anima (anima – spirit or life force) as an investigation of self or wider socio-political concerns of the artist.

In addition to the exhibitions, the NRCG will host a series of public programs during the October long weekend which include artist talks, panel discussions, a creative Pecha Kucha and Celebrity Divinyl event.

The public programs offer a revealing exposé of the thoughts and motivations behind various aspects of contemporary art practices.

The ArtLAB Project is for artists, curators, cultural workers, academics, scientists, social change agents, creative engineers and anyone with a creative mind. You are invited you to think, create and join the conversation.

The ArtLAB series of public programs runs over three days only, starting Friday 2 October and finishing Sunday 4 October. Full program details are available on the NRCG website

The suite of exhibitions open Wednesday 30 September and continue until Sunday 25 October 2015.
