ABOUT SODA JERK
Formed in Sydney in 2002, and currently based in New York, Soda Jerk is a two-person art collective interested in the politics of images and ways of dismantling their inherent hierarchies. Predominantly working with video, their contribution to the exhibition Just Not Australian is an Ian Potter Moving Image Commission for the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne. Soda Jerk have undertaken numerous residencies, including an Asialink Art residency to Hong Kong, a European Media Art Network Residency Exchange in Liverpool, UK, the International Studio and Curatorial Program residency in New York, and the Australia Council for the Arts Kunstlerhaus Bethanien residency in Berlin.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Just Not Australian presents Australian practitioners at the forefront of national debate and practice. Drawing together 20 artists from diverse cultural backgrounds, their differing ideas and perspectives on nationhood coexist within this timely thematic show. Showcasing the common sensibilities of satire, larrikinism and resistance so as to present a broad exploration of race, place and belonging, Just Not Australian interrogates what it means to be Australian at this challenging point in time.
Just Not Australian was curated by Artspace and developed in partnership with Sydney Festival and Museums & Galleries of NSW. The exhibition is touring nationally with Museums & Galleries of NSW.
Exhibition on display at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre 18 September – 8 November 2020.
