OFF SITE EXHIBITION: Morning Star, Evening Star
Evening Star encompassed a series of projects between contemporary art organisations, curators and artists in Melbourne and Scotland between 1998-99. After the Scottish artists exhibited at various spaces in Melbourne in 1998, eight Melbourne artists travelled to Edinburgh and Glasgow to exhibit their works in 1999. The exchange strengthened and extended networks and relationships between the arts communities involved and built on shared artistic concerns. The project involved ACCA, Centre for Contemporary Photography, 200 Gertrude Street and the Museum of Modern Art at Heide. Morning Star was supported by Arts Victoria, the Australia Council, the City of Melbourne, The British Council, the City of Glasgow and the Scottish Arts Council.
