From the Shelf to the Wall: Artistic Research and Resources from the Maraya Collection

This exhibition highlights the research resources available at Maraya Art Centre and creates a dialogue between our collection, library, and video archive.

The space is open to the public, along with work and reading areas to allow visitors to engage with research about art production in this region, simultaneously accessing conversations aesthetically and textually.  

The artists in the collection have been invited to share books, publications, and catalogues that have been inspirational and informative to their practices, which will be added continually throughout the exhibition period, in order to create stronger ties and to enhance the resources available in the library. The books and the Video Archive will permanently be installed in the third floor entry way to continue acting as a resource base.
