Abstract

Exhibition held at Macquarie University Art Gallery, Sydney, 9 December 2009 - 3 February 2010 curated by Jennifer Deger. Featured work by anthropoologists and artists exploring theme of art as a mode of social engagement.

Research Statement

Research Background This edited catalogue was produced as part of Deger's exhibiton interventions: experiments between art and ethnography, curated at the invitation of the Australian Anthropological Society as a special event at their annual conference in 2009 at the Macquarie University Art Gallery.
Research Contribution The theme of art as a form of social engagement and critical response rise to a range of work foregrounding the formative relational knowledges and ethical responsibilties produced through long-term ethnographic encounter. Research Contribution:This exhibition highlighted the possiblities of practice-led anthropological research in ways that had not previously occurred at such a scale. Including Aboriginal photographer, Michael Aird, and artist Chris Barry, it also highlighted the interdisiplinary vectors enlivening ethnography and its practioners.
Research Significance The exhibition and catalogue mark a formative moment in Australian anthropology, one in which art practice and performance assumed a more central and recognised place within the academy. Since that time it has become far more common for anthropologists and anthropological conferences to feature performances and artworks/exhibitions produced by researchers. In addition the exhibition and catalogue produced a new sense of what a public anthropology might look like.
