Inside Cinema vs Parallel Universe Crew_

11 September - 18 October 2020

Griffith Regional Art Gallery

Step inside and experience the fantastical world of movie characters, superheroes, timescapes, and the solar system. Become an audience member inside our cinema of the imagination and unexplained. 

 

Over five weeks, 13 artists worked together to create new work in a pop-up supported studio at Griffith Regional Art Gallery. 

A supported studio is a place where learning-disabled artists can be ambitious, make their own decisions, collaborate, develop their skills and be supported to make excellent art.


The artists worked with curator Sarah McEwan, from the Cad Factory, to dream up the installation.

This project is a partnership between the Cad Factory, Griffith Regional Art Gallery, Riverina Community College and Kalinda School
