NEWS | NEW MEGAN COPE WORK UNVEILED AT GERTRUDE CONTEMPORARY
A new work by Megan Cope is to be featured in Gertrude Contemporary’s exhibition If People Powered Radio: 40 Years of 3CR opening Friday March 18.
Celebrating 40 years of 3CR, the exhibition will explore the station’s history of radical broadcasting and how it has thrived in its endeavour to foreground the often unheard voices of Aboriginal people, women, workers, ethnic and GLBTIQ communities, differently abled people, environmentalists, artists and musicians.
If People Powered Radio presents a series of newly commissioned artworks by local artists that frame and translate the station’s history of radical broadcasting. Megan Cope has created a new window work mapping the broadcast range of3CR’s radiowaves, utilising Gertrude Contemporary’s front window akin to the way 3CR uses its Smith Street building: as a public site to broadcast messages visually.
If People Powered Radio will be on at Gertrude Contemporary from March 18 – April 23, 2016. More information on the exhibition and affiliated public programs can be found on the GERTRUDE CONTEMPORARY WEBSITE.
