Artlands Conversation #3: Connection in Times of Isolation
 

What role do we want technology to play in connecting our art practices to the wider world? What skills are artists working in isolated or remote parts of the world equipped with? Can issues such as digital saturation and digital inequality be overcome in order to create a more sustainable future?

Further information

Like many regional artists, Kim Goldsmith and Alana Hunt often create work in relatively isolated parts of Australia. In contrast, Jessica Olivieri and Emile Zile both practice in metropolitan areas, but have been no less impacted by the isolation imposed by lockdowns. What can these artists teach each other about isolation and digital connection, and how might this inform our thinking about where to next as arts practitioners?
