Dubbo Photo News - - What’s On -

DUBBO’S state of the art cul­tural cen­tre houses both the city’s art gallery and its mu­seum. Ex­hi­bi­tions in­clude trav­el­ling dis­plays and per­ma­nent col­lec­tions, cur­rently an ex­hi­bi­tion called, The River. Can art be used to com­mu­ni­cate be­tween two cul­tures? This is the ques­tion posed by The River, an ex­hi­bi­tion in­spired by the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the city of Dubbo and one of its sis­ter cities, Mi­nokamo, Ja­pan. Both Dubbo and Mi­nokamo have a ma­jor river that flows through each city,which has in­spired gen­er­a­tions of artists in both coun­tries. Us­ing the river as a com­mon sub­ject, WPCC has in­vited six artists from Dubbo to re­spond to the Mac­quarie River, jux­ta­posed with artists from Mi­nokamo re­spond­ing to the Kiso­gawa River. This presents al­ter­nate views of a shared nat­u­ral phe­nom­e­non. The pro­ject aims to make cul­tural and artis­tic con­nec­tions and strengthen ties with our sis­ter city.
