Dreamers who seek treasure, 2013
Campbelltown LiveArt, Sydney, Australia
Curator: Paul Gazzola
Temporary Democracies is an initiative from the Campbelltown Arts Centre and continues the tradition established by the LiveArt projects Site Lab and Minto: Live which installed contemporary art events and performances in South West Sydney and entered into direct dialogue with the public about their urban reality.
Many of the residents that will be displaced by the renewal of Airds Bradbury social housing area are second and third generation occupants with strong ties to the site. Through artist-lead participation, dialogue and interaction, Temporary Democracies aims to explore the social contexts and consequences of urban renewal while calling on local residents and communities to do so.
