Summer Studio: THING / LANGUAGE

Mitchel Cumming

12–28 Jan 2023

The annual exchange between Lilac City Studio (Sydney/Gadigal) and Blindside ARI (Melbourne/Naarm) hopes to foster a cross pollination between the two cities & their respective ARI communities. For the program's second year, Sydney artist & ARI director (KNULP, Sydney/Gadigal) Mitchel Cumming will be hosted in residence at Blindside for the summer studio

Mitchel Cumming is an artist and poet living and working on unceded Gadigal and Bidjigal land. His work frequently involves the establishment and/or manipulation of exhibition contexts: a process in which elements generally considered supplementary to artistic production become instead a primary material.

Cumming's exhibition THING / LANGUAGE, is a culmination of his time in the residency.

The Blindside Summer Studio Residency Program provides a unique platform for the examination of practice and work within a combined studio and exhibition context.

Opening: 12 Jan 2023, 7am–9am

This program takes place on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded - this land is stolen land. We pay respects to Wurundjeri Elders, past, present and emerging, to the Elders from other communities and to any other Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in the program.
