Environmental Film Festival Australia presents MAKESHIFT

April 19, 2021 Events Calendar No Comments

Environmental Film Festival Australia (EFFA) is excited to present its first-ever visual arts exhibition MAKESHIFT running from Thursday, 29 April to Thursday, 6 May 2021.

Held at the RMIT University City Campus, the free week-long exhibition examines how we make sense of the ecological emergency as it unfolds within the ordinary: exploring improvisation and thinking-through-making as a way to re-engage with a more than human world.

In 2021, EFFA has facilitated virtual residencies for Curtis Taylor, filmmaker, screen artist, and young Martu leader, and Pierra Van Sparkes, Kulin country based Pibbulman Noongar artist working with photography, video projection and digital media, and the exhibition will showcase the residents’ works alongside eight other Australian artists.

The artists whose exciting works are being exhibited are:

  • Amelia Hine
  • Bronwyn Hack
  • Charity Edwards
  • Curtis Taylor
  • Edwina Green
  • Ishkoodah
  • Jodie Le
  • Karleng Lim
  • Pierra Van Sparkes
  • Rina Corpus (performance)
  • Tiyan Baker

“The EFFA Arts Curatorial team are incredibly excited to share the works of these incredible artists. Rather than engaging with a state of anticipation, waiting for a recognisable ‘Event’, these works are a meditation on modes of existence in a messy present as the ecological emergency unfolds around us,” says Arts Program Manager Taylor Mitchell.

The exhibition is presented in collaboration with RMIT’s School of Media & Communication and supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants.
