This six-week project is the second artistic and curatorial residency in the Modern Art Projects / Kiosk Studios 3x6 series, and has been specifically designed to support contemporary artists living and working in the Blue Mountains, and Western Sydney. It has offered an exciting opportunity for local emerging artists, and artist-curators to develop their curatorial skills in a stimulating and supportive environment, and allowed the creation of a series of challenging exhibitions in this unique location.
An initiative of Modern Art Projects Blue Mountains, this residency has followed an experimental approach to contemporary drawing practice, taking as a starting point the history, architecture and landscape of the Katoomba Falls Kiosk site. Located adjacent to the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park, the building is a rare example of a Federation-era kiosk, one of only four surviving buildings in the area.
EXHIBITION: 10th-17th December, 10am-4pm daily, The Kiosk, 102b Cliff Drive, Katoomba, NSW
PUBLIC PROGRAM: 16th December 10am-3pm
10am-11am Sarah Breen Lovett extends an invitation to take a short walk to ‘draw breath’ at the President’s Grove, to draw in oxygen from the redwood trees through breathing, translating this into our individual experiences. This work proposes the act of subtle, non-visible exchanges as another way of thinking about drawing.

1pm-1.15pm Artist talk with Rebecca Waterstone
1.15pm-1.30pm Artist talk with Mark Surtees
