Matilda Street House Invites You In: multidisciplinary, ongoing socially engaged contemporary art
Socially engaged art (SEA) is the cutting edge of contemporary. It resists display in galleries, eschews singular authors and objectification. SEA is ongoing around the world (Oda Projesi, ruang rupa, INLAND, Party Office +) formed by communities & friendships and framed by artists, because art cannot be contained by the institution. Art is a ‘third’ space; special but familiar; living is form. In SEA the space of hospitality is the support; relationship is the media, ethics is the aesthetic. Our home - as SEA invites you in for one weekend, for a cup of tea, and an unpredicatable sets of live music, paintings, people, plants and conversations. This is not participatory art, just come like a friend and witness what this expanding group of diverse people have created in this space. WELCOME.
This is a home-as-art venue. Expect a friendly group of many people or few. Tread lightly like a gallery, allow the work to unfold without explanation. Can you see the invisible? All is free but bring some cash to buy a plant to take home.
