All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Please Note: this event takes place at various community and cafe noticeboards around Dunedin - catch it where you can!

Modelled on Books in the Wild, Tagged and Released will see original artwork created by high school students, then documented on Facebook before being labeled and displayed on community and cafe notice boards for people to claim and own for themselves. Instructions on the work will then allow people to post on the Facebook site where the work has ended up.

This project will involve around 30-50 students, with the aim of around 80 small works on canvas. The project is designed to start an inquiry for the students and participants around valuing and display of artworks. There will be no set theme for this work to allow students to create any type of work they want (no offensive works will be allowed). Students will be invited to attend workshops after school and the intention is to have a variety of ages, abilities, cultures, and genders.

For most students this will be the first time their work has been in the public eye. The placement of the art works on notice boards is designed to open up a new audience to the potential ownership of an original piece of art. This work will bring a youth focused aspect to the Fridge, sewing a seed for future involvement.

In part an experiment in the process for 2017 this project would look to move beyond working with just group of students. In the future opening this concept up to a wide group of young artists is planned. Another development could be replacing new works with previous pieces — works could then be tracked over years to see how they move about Dunedin and beyond.

The project is aiming to give a platform for students, as young visual artists, an opportunity to have their work presented to the public as well as being part of the production process. Students will be encouraged to approach libraries, supermarkets, cafes and the like in their area to be part of this project. As such many of these works will find their way into areas outside the central city.

The use of noticeboards as a presentation space is an unusual ‘venue’ for original art and will reach an audience that may be unfamiliar with traditional art spaces.
