Magnetic Topographies

02 April 2022–02 April 2022

‘Magnetic Topographies: A model for collective spatial practice online and in-person’ as part of the WRITING & CONCEPTS program.
Saturday, 2nd April at 2:00pm at KINGS Artist-Run.

Magnetic Topographies is a collaborative experiment proposed by Clare Britton, Therese Keogh and Kenzee Patterson. It exists as an artist-run initiative animated by research and creative practice with no physical space. Magnetic Topographies is partway through a twelve-month collaborative reading and field trip process. This collective connects people and practitioners with diverse areas of interest and fields, with an underlying focus on collaborative spatial practice, to explore the importance of creative friendship across geographical distance. 

For our WRITING & CONCEPTS presentation, Magnetic Topographies will be presenting the fifth iteration of our monthly project, begun in October 2021. We will be collectively reading a chapter from Anna Clark’s Making Australian History, and together we will be generating responses to a live provocation for practice, performed by Tina Stefanou.

WRITING & CONCEPTS is a lecture and performance series exploring the insights practitioners have into their own creative and cultural practices. It provides an opportunity to explore these insights in a public forum – in a mode consistent with their practice.

Magnetic Topographies acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the many lands and waters upon which this project occurs.
