Project / Forward
A weekend-long global projection art festival with pop-up events throughout the year. We curate a (approx 45 min) video package of artworks from artists all over the world who want to create a solutions-based, inspiring society. The project aims to be shown in under-resourced spaces that don't usually get to see projection art and host spaces anywhere in the world, hosted by MG Collaborators who get to see artists they wouldn't normally see. The projection spaces will be a space not usually used for cultural/art activity such as a temple, a bridge, a house, a brick wall, a monument, a laneway.
