RELEASE DATE

History, Memory, Longford

Longford, Tasmania becomes a point of departure for mapping our colonial and post-colonial connections. It will be transformed with video installations projected onto streets, shop facades and parklands that question the memories, histories and contemporary experiences of the community. The site-specific works, developed through collaborations between The Longford Group and Longford residents, will challenge the anecdotes of ancestry and reveal the secrets of the region’s histories.

The Longford Group consists of Nicholas Tsoutas, curator, Brianna Munting, associate curator, artists Elizabeth Day, Julie Gough, Noelene Lucas, and writer Anna Gibbs.
