Open Borders: Between Confinement and Liberation


Arts Narrogin is delighted to participate in the Open Borders Project, and to showcase a selection of our region’s visual artists in an exhibition of contemporary visual art to be held at NEXIS (Narrogin Exhibition Space) from 28 January –19 February 2023.  

The title of our exhibition is Open Borders: Between Confinement and Liberation

Joint Curators of the exhibition are Casey Thornton and Ned Crossley are inviting artists with a demonstrable connection to the Southern Wheatbelt Region (see map in information pack) to submit an Expression of Interest by 11:59pm on Monday 8th August in response to the exhibition concept and guidelines in the Artist Information Pack below. Please note; the curators will exercise their discretion to consider EOIs received after this time, if required.


‘Open Borders’ is a series of 12 group exhibitions and 3 original performances held across all 9 regions of WA during 2022-23. Each event reflects the unique interests, artists and experiences of the diverse participating communities (Kununurra, Broome, Port Hedland, Gascoyne Junction, Geraldton, Carnamah, Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Ravensthorpe, Narrogin, Denmark, Northcliffe, Margaret River and Dwellingup).  Interconnected through the central theme, the project aims to culminate in a survey of contemporary regional art practice at John Curtin Gallery (Perth) in September-November 2023.
