Gallery as Residency
Gallery as ResidencyAlira Callaghan
Gallery as Residency is a new exhibition by Alira Callaghan at Paper Mountain that investigates the gallery as a site for creativity. Callaghan will make and exhibit work during the exhibition, transforming the Paper Mountain exhibition space into a dynamic performance space and collaborating with visiting gallery patrons. Taking the concept of the artist residency as a starting point, this performance work unpacks how art is made while creating an experience between participants and the gallery space itself.
Gallery as Residency is presented as part of Peaks 2018, a curated program of emerging visual art and performance organised by Paper Mountain for FRINGE WORLD Festival 2018. Peaks 2018 is proudly sponsored by the City of Perth.
