Living Museum of the West
Sunday 7 September – Sunday 5 October 2014
Exhibition opening: Saturday 6 September 2014, 2-4pm. The exhibition will be opened by Councillor Grant Miles (Mayor, City of Maribyrnong).

The exhibition The Museum is the Region, the Region is the Museum has been envisaged as a way to re-establish West Space’s connection with the western suburbs of Melbourne, where West Space was founded in 1993. Presented off-site at the Living Museum of the West—and drawing upon the rich history of the western suburbs, as documented in the Living Museum’s own archive—this exhibition will feature newly commissioned work by a range of local and international artists that each respond to the geography and built heritage of this unique site. The Museum is the Region, the Region is the Museum brings together the stories of the many communities of the western suburbs through the Living Museum of the West’s unique and extensive archive of oral histories, photographic and video archives.
Artists: Avni Dauti, Lisa Radford and Kim Munro and Sam George, Susan Jacobs, Mikhail Karikis & Uriel Orlow, Kerrie Poliness, Geoff Robinson.
Curated by Danny Lacy, Liang Luscombe & Patrice Sharkey

The Dove’s Annihilation is a solo piano recital, with its generic boundaries opened to the involvement of intense spoken-word poetry and the radically expressive movement art of eurythmy. In music, poetry, movement, we bear witness to Plath's conscience-awakening vision of the contemporary world-order as a crucible made of darkness and hope.
