Yak Yak

Yak Yak is a curatorial project that features newly commissioned and existing works by artists whose practices address rural contexts as particular sites for art making and cultural production. Artists and art/farming/architecture assemblages and collectives from four continents present works that engage with their own localities and with other localities, emphasizing the importance of trans-local dialogue around the future of rural places.
Yak Yak is conceived within the framework of ACRE (Australia's Creative Rural Economy), a network and project based in the Victoria/NSW region. The ACRE Project generates art interventions and dialogues in rural situations, opening a space to think differently about what can happen on farms in the present and the future.
Yak Yak takes place in the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery, Victoria. It ​is co-curated by Ian Tully and Fiona Woods, working closely with invited contributors.
