Anne Kay and Josie Cavallaro
Who needs artists, 2006
A collaborative project with Josie Cavallaro, where a callout was made to the complex mix of residents around the gallery in Woolloomooloo, NSW, to ask what members of the community might want artists-in-residence to offer them, while at the same time surveying the relationship between Artspace Visual Art Centre and the surrounding neighbourhood. Requests were received and a number of events were provided for the community during the exhibition It’s a new day. The events included: a Cake as Art workshop in Artspace for children from community centre next door, a tour to the little-known John Passmore Museum in Wooloomooloo, an outdoor screening for local residents of the film Kids Stakes – shot in Wooloomooloo in 1927 and an Artist-Curator Speed dating evening in the gallery.
