Charles Sturt University (CSU) approached me to consult on their new exhibition space in the refurbed main building at the Dubbo campus. We discussed some call-out strategies and exhibition documents. Bart Sykes from the Dubbo campus wanted me to exhibit first up, but I wasn't able to accomodate his dates. I suggested Mal Morris who I new was working on some cultural material we had developed in community workshops called "Carved-Up".
So we had some meeting, calls and discussions and Mal has developed this splendid body of work. It marks a maturation of Mal's investigations into cultural carving, and is a fantastic first exhibition for the new CSU community exhibition space.
