 Conversing About The Other

Conversing About The Other

Description

Brisbane-based artist, Courtney Coombs, thinks a lot about the words other, otherness, The Other. These are words used so often that they seem to no longer really hold meaning, and yet people connect with them. They also disconnect with them.

During their time as Artist in Residence at Testing Grounds, Coombs will be working to better understand these terms - why they have always identified with them, how they engage with them while remaining aware of their position(s) of privilege, and question whether, while they are so often understood as negative, these words be embraced as a positive strategy for change.

In order to open this conversation, Coombs will invite a selection of Melbourne-based artists to co-facilitate group discussions on these words and/or ideas.

Please feel free to drop by any time during opening hours to discuss one-on-one with the artist.
