In 2008 Artrage celebrates its 25th Anniversary. The SILVER exhibition explores visual practice in Perth over the last 25 years referencing key artists, contributors, exhibitions, artist-run initiatives (ARIs) and galleries that have been linked to ARTRAGE programs. This survey exhibition also shines a spotlight on the career trajectories of selected artists, some of whom are now based interstate and overseas. Co-curators Marcus Canning and Andrew Gaynor, with their combined involvement in ARTRAGE dating back to 1988, bring what they describe as an ‘unashamedly personal’ curatorial eye to a survey that will utilise all of PICA’s exhibition spaces and run during the 2008 ‘SILVER’ ARTRAGE Festival.
