the CORRIDOR project partnership

In 2022 Orange Regional Gallery (ORG) is curating a group show of site-specific work by artists selected from the CORRIDOR AIR + PD-LAB.

Running across 2020-2021 the CORRIDOR AIR + PD-LAB was a curated residency program of Arts and Science residencies that includes professional development, presentations and workshops. Artists, writers, and curators collaborated during the program, expanding upon the themes of the Galari, Anthropogenic Biomes, Geomorphology and Herbarium.

Orange Regional Gallery partnered with the CORRIDOR project; presenting seminars, and meeting with the artists throughout the residency program.

As part of the partnership, ORG is working with a selection of AIR + PD-LAB artists towards an exhibition in 2022. Artists Matt O’Brien, Stephan van der Merwe, Steven Cavanagh, Thomas Thorby-Lister and Heather Vallance have been selected for the group exhibition. The artists will work with Orange Regional Gallery curator Lucy Stranger to create new work, building upon key ideas that were formed during the residency at the CORRIDOR project.

The ongoing partnership between Orange Regional Gallery and the CORRIDOR project aims to support and strengthen the arts ecology of artists, art spaces and institutions in the Central West of New South Wales.

Regenerate Toolkit

Ongoing

Are you a public Museum, Gallery or other cultural institution located in a fire-effected community?

Following on from the success of our Regenerate project Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum have developed the Regenerate Toolkit—a practical guide for fire-effected communities interested in developing their own, site responsive version of Regenerate.

The Regenerate Toolkit is available for free to public Galleries, Museums and other cultural institutions. Contact our Engagement and Education Officer on 6393 8133 for more information.

Regenerate is a creative exploration by local primary school students of how Australia’s bushland responds to fire. Over 2,000 local primary school children have participated in the project to date, decorating thousands of cardboard leaves to represent the burning and regeneration of the bushland on Mount Canobolas following the fires in 2018.

Regenerate is a collaborative project developed by the SPARKE learning network, Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum.

This project is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
