Virtual histories are a form of fictional writing that apply a ‘what if’ scenario to history. For example, ‘what if Christopher Columbus did not discover the Americas’, or ‘what if Able Tasman did not discover New Zealand’? Of course neither Columbus nor Tasman were responsible for discovering either of those lands, and the artists in this exhibition explore this idea of ‘virtual histories’ in relation to these types of so called ‘true histories’.

The artworks in this exhibition are made by seven Māori artists from Aotearoa New Zealand who use digital media to create real and virtual spaces for Indigenous knowledge. The exhibition includes a range of media from virtual reality and augmented reality artworks, through to video games, projection installation and 3D printing. Each artwork critiques dominate histories and perceptions of Indigenous peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand, and postulates on how different the world might be for Indigenous peoples in the future.

Exhibition curator Reuben Friend says, “the exhibition includes some of the leading figures currently working in Māori digital art and is a major chance to review how Māori digital media has advanced over the past ten years”.

Te Papa / Toi Poneke installation

Working with Artist & Curator Suzanne Tamaki & exclusive access to the Te Papa Artefacts & Collections.

This unique installation of integrated Augmented Reality & immersive media utilises genuine artefacts & archives with state of the art new technology involving Augmented & Merged Reality that will surprise, excite & enlighten... where art & education are cohesively confused in an immersive statement.

Producer Joff Rae says "Tamaki presents these works as a functional element of her curatorial process establishing a purposeful & relative response to the works of the selected artists showing in the group exhibition... the interactive AR & MR are unique artistic presentations & works - it's clever & insightful that she uses genuine artefacts from the Te Papa Collections"

Suzanne Tamaki presents selected Augmented & Merged Reality works.


This Is Art - a venture by Ero by JoFF Rae

Ero...

"After months of negotiations I have finally manage to score a pop up studio/shop in the third largest shopping complex in Australia, the numbers are huge, 16.7 million people through per annum with approx 250,000 through each week. Highpoint shopping centre in Maribyrnong have handed me the keys to this shop space. In this space it will be a studio, shop, gallery and workshop all rolled into one. For the gallery we will have a show once a month for a week starting in February so if anyone would like to have a show or group show pm me and I will email you details. The rent will be $450 for the week with $100 being for food, advertising etc. Commission will be a pay what you think is appropriate deal. Workshops will be starting in the school holidays and if anyone has a particular workshop they would like to put on pm also. I want to run eight hour workshops broken into two four hour blocks spread out over three days with three workshops running concurrently over the three days and depending on interest ten to fifteen participants per workshop. Each participant with be charged $65 per workshop with $35 per participant going to the artist taking the workshop. If their are artisans who have products they have made I would also be interested in hearing from you. Anyone who does performance of any genre pm me. This project I am calling 'This is Art' and will be based around El lissiky's beat the whites with the red wedge. Substituting the whites with mass consumerism and the red wedge with the subculture of art. This is an idea I have been working on for a couple of years. It is about intervention in a community to see if I can affect change with art being it's principal tool."

Melbourne FRINGE '13 by JoFF Rae

2013 MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL   18 SEPT - 6 OCT 

Melbourne Fringe is a not-for-profit organisation that presents the annual Melbourne Fringe Festival. They provide artists with the tools to develop, present and promote their work, creating a community of audiences and artists that together represent a National arts network.

The Melbourne Fringe Festival is an open-access event. Each year artists from a wide scope of art-form and experience join the Independent Arts Program to develop and present their work as part of the Festival. Through the Independent Arts Program they run the Festival Hub, a curated space that offers a cross-section of arts experiences throughout the Festival period including the Fringe Club.

Central to each year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival is our Creative Program, Melbourne Fringe produced projects which bring emerging and established artists together to explore new ways to engage audiences with free works in public spaces. In 2012, our Creative Program delivered Double Take and Fringe Furniture.

The Melbourne Fringe Artist Development Program supports Festival participants and the broader independent arts community. Year-round they deliver a range of programs across all aspects of building a successful and sustainable career in the arts.  The Artist Development Programs include mentorships, forums, training and awards.

To present the Festival and support year-round activities, Melbourne Fringe works with a range of committed and valued partners.
