It is an important 10 year anniversary for the Leipzig International Art Program (LIA) which I attended from 2015-16.
We've just finished installing the work and setting up the space for the opening night on 8th March. The exhibition runs until 24 March.
This weekend will be interesting as I have work in and will attend the Autumn Rundgang at the Spinnerei in Leipzig. Its an epic public event and always really fun to see the Spinnerei come to life in this way, as it is usually a quiet set of buildings where artists work.
This year is an official relationship with German and Australian Governments, with a cultural program titled Australia Now. The LIA residency studios are exhibiting my work and many other residents from Australia.
We are having an open studios event this Thursday at LIA.
Its also a moment to say farewell to Kristina Semenova because she is leaving her role as the LIA co-ordinator and moving onto her own projects. Kristina is an important person on the Leipzig scene. She has also helped countless artists in her LIA role.
One of her many ventures is Bükü, which is positioned close to Spinnerei and has facilitated many great international projects.
