Somewhere in the City NOW OPEN!

Somewhere in the City opened at Arts Project Australia on the warm afternoon of Saturday 13th of June. The opening was a huge success with the gallery packed out with both familiar and new faces.

Curated by Karra Rees, Managing Curator at the Centre of Contemporary Photography, Somewhere in the City opened as part of Arts Project Australia’s external curator program. Twice a year Arts Project invites external curators to curate an exhibition at their gallery including both Arts Project artists and external artists, developing relationships with other contemporary art organisations and artists.

The gallery was filled with regular Arts Project supporters and artists, as well as friends and supporters of CCP, and of the external artists present including Shannon Smiley and Charlie Sofo.

Somewhere in the City includes an impressive list of artists including Boris Cipusev, Miles Howard-Wilks, Kate Knight, Gavin Porter and Terry Williams from Arts Project Australia, as well as Junebum Park, Liesl Pfeffer, Shannon Smiley, Charlie Sofo, and Kensuke Todo.
