Curatorial Digest
– Becoming The Icon

As part of BLEED Echo, Campbelltown Arts Centre will host a five-part digital salon program called Curatorial Digest. The series will feature conversations with BLEED artists and special guests, each facilitated by a member of the BLEED curatorial team from C-A-C or Arts House. Released fortnightly, there will be a Curatorial Digest to accompany each of the BLEED artist projects.

These exchanges provide a platform for artists to unpack the conceptual ideas behind their projects with a selection of guests including creative collaborators and members of partner organisations.

The Curatorial Digests also hold space for discussion about the ways in which artists and their projects have been inexorably affected by COVID-19. They allow a window in to the artistic and human impacts of the pandemic, providing opportunity for reflection and sharing on a personal level, as well as about the arts industry holistically.

In this session, join Becoming The Icon Lead Artists Lilian Steiner and Emile Zile in conversation with Emily Sexton (Artistic Director, Arts House).

BLEED Echo is a public program responding to and ricocheting from the five artist projects and curatorial conversations of BLEED.
