Rural Utopias: Spaced 04

As part of International Art Space's Rural Utopias: Spaced 04 program Alana will be an artist in residence with the Kimberley Land Council.

Alana is the first artist in the Spaced program who lives in the same region and town within which her residency will take place, working in Kununurra and Broome across the Kimberley region of Western Australia.

2020-22

Hosted by the Kimberley Land Council, over the course of her residency Alana will research and learn about the legal and bureaucratic processes structured by non-Indigenous Australia that enable colonisation's ongoing pursuit of a rural utopia. She will be researching the Aboriginal Heritage Act, photographing gravel pits, and interrogating processes of “consultation” and “community engagement”.

Read about how Alana works as an artist and mother on Spilt Milk. Listen to interviews with The Polis Project and Canvas: unframing art and ideas. Think about violent dreams of development in the north-west of Australia. And a conversation about Kashmir with Sanjay Kak.
