Abstract

The exhibition challenges and embraces the complexity and richness of Port Arthur through the concept of revelation - the uncovering of under-recognised or over-looked elements of the site and its environs, or the reinvestigation of conventional readings of history through visual art in new and unusual ways. Port Arthur Project is an ambitious project that has relied on the vision and effort of a large team comprising the 25 artists, the curatorial group and administrative, technical and discipline specialists from the three organisations; all demonstrated their skill and commitment throughout the 18 months itís taken to realise the project.
