Thinking of Place iii

Thinking of Place iii is a collaborative print project that involves 4-6 artists from each of 16 international printmaking groups who have created new works for a travelling exhibition that has its world premier in Cairns at NorthSite. This is a new and expanded iteration of a project that began as Thinking of Place i in 2014. Participating artists were invited to invoke a legend, myth, story or an aspect of ancestral heritage in relation to their personal identification with geography and environment. This international collaboration thus represents individual responses to both specific localities and shared cultural legacies.
