As part of her research for The Long Paddock, Genevieve Murray (Future Method Studio) will be working from her Nomadic Office at the Futurelands 2 festival. Murray will be collecting stories about future strategies and uses for travelling stock routes as part of the Long Paddock program. The work has been comissioned by the New Landscapes Institute and will be included in the group exhibition in Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, opening May 7, 2017.
Futurelands happens in and around Kandos from November 12-13, 2016 .
The weekend will bring together artists, writers, agricultural innovators, ecological scientists, environmental activists, Indigenous custodians and the broader community to explore our changing relationship to land and the emerging art forms that are engaging with it. Among the confirmed speakers is Bunarong, Tasmanian and Yuin man, Bruce Pascoe, whose historical account of pre-contact Indigenous farming practices and aquaculture, Dark Emu, was recently awarded NSW Premier’s Literary Award for Book of the Year.
