Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

The Fraud Complex was an experimental assemblage of artworks and texts that sought to suspend established categories of selfhood and knowledge, questioning concepts of authenticity and fraudulence that have underpinned value in aesthetic, political and social economies. An expanded creative program that brought eleven international and Australian contemporary artists (Abdullah, Abdullah, Armanious, Arnot, Cole, Cope, Dillon, Morawetz, Noble, Okon & Stewart) into dialogue with writers, performers and thinkers (Childs, Russell-Cook, Fliedner & Paton), The Fraud Complex asked: are we all just faking it in different ways? Co-curated with Peter H. Johnson this exhibition was produced through the Next Wave Emerging Curator's Program, having been selected through a competitive peer-review process. It was presented at the esteemed experimental art space, West Space, in Melbourne.
