Dave Hullfish Bailey + Sam Watson: CityCat Project 2017 is an ongoing collaboration (since 2006) between Los Angeles artist Dave Hullfish Bailey and Brisbane Aboriginal activist and writer Sam Watson. Presented by Australian Fine Arts/David Pestorius, the curator of the project, the exhibition bridges indigenous concerns and political action across geographic borders.
Dave Hullfish Bailey + Sam Watson: CityCat Project 2017 will be exhibited from 15 March — 8 April, 2017 at Neon Parc.
Coinciding with the exhibition will be a number of related events, including lecture/performances by Dave Hullfish Bailey at Monash University, Caulfield Campus on Thursday 16 March and RMIT Centre for Art, Society and Transformation on Friday 17 March, while on Saturday 25 March the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art will host the official launch of Dave Hullfish Bailey + Sam Watson: CityCat Project 2006–2016, edited by Rex Butler and published by the Sternberg Press. The launch by Aboriginal activist and historian Gary Foley will be preceded by a Q&A session involving Foley and Sam Watson, both of whom were key participants in the Aboriginal Embassy media event, and be mediated by Paola Balla, co-curator of ACCA’s current Sovereignty project.
