a short note designating something to be remembered

a record, a note to self

This group exhibition brings together friends, students and colleagues who have connected through their practice, their learning and exhibitions over the past decade.

It brings together the shared ideas of a creative community, telling of the continuity of stories and histories, and the connections and commonalities between makers.

Memoranda features works that were influenced by the theories and influences of an art school and its people, and considers the creative process within the community and context of a teaching and learning environment.

Collectively, the works are a ‘memoranda’ - a note to self for all those who have made art, here, from 2008 to 2018.
