Byline: Niomi Sands Director Grafton Regional Gallery

GRAFTON Regional Gallery is pleased to present Moving Histories // Future Projections, bringing together some of Australia's leading female contemporary artists working across screen-based media, including Mikala Dwyer and Justene Williams, Amala Groom, Deborah Kelly, Kate Blackmore and Jacinta Tobin, Joan Ross, Soda_Jerk, Angelica Mesiti and Caroline Garcia.

Curated by Kelly Doley and Diana Smith, of collaborative artist group Barbara Cleveland, the exhibition explores invisible pasts, forgotten narratives and repressed memories, reminding us how history is fractured by race, class and gender.

The artists in Moving Histories // Future Projections approach their subject matter in a variety of ways -- they turn the camera on themselves, re-stage historical events or reimagine alternative futures through speculative accounts of the past.

Yet through repetition, montage and mimicry, they all explore a space where time folds in on itself and back again and each looks back while also moving forward.

Collectively and individually they act as historians, archivists and archeologists -- excavating historical materials, digging through archives and channelling the past to make new connections across time and space.

Curators Ms Smith and Ms Doley have been collaborating together as artists, writers and curators for 10 years with a focus on feminist practices. They are founding members of the performance collective Barbara Cleveland (formally Brown Council) and working together as Sunday School they have curated exhibitions and performances for Boxcopy, Brisbane; Artspace, Sydney; Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney; and PSi Conference, Melbourne among others.

Moving Histories // Future Projections is a dLux Media Arts exhibition toured by Museums and Galleries of NSW and is on show at the gallery until October 20.
