Know Thy Neighbour #3 is a provocation to the familiarity of place, asking communities to step outside of familiar engagements and locations; to seek out scenarios or contexts that defamiliarise and recontextualise “the local” for communities, audiences, or the artists themselves and ask how we can meaningfully engage in the making of our cities.
Taking the form of an extended residency, five artists were each paired with a community host partner, in which they were asked to investigates notions of place, sites of interest, networks, and social relationships.
The final presentation of the program was housed at Cullity Gallery, UWA School of Design as an exhibition. The culminating work was a joint outcome negotiated between the artist in residence and the community they worked with, articulating a lived experience of the neighbourhood in a creative setting.
