? Golden Utopia Exhibition ?
"Golden Utopia is a solo exhibition by NT-based artist Georgie Mattingley. Featuring painting, video and staged photography with the local community, this new body of work is a culmination of two years of research and two artist residencies at the Goldfields Art Centre.
A painted mural featuring the Super Pit Mine is transported to various locations around the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. Community members pose for their portrait taken in-situ, grabbing snapshots of the City’s cultural life, from Hannan’s Park to Boulder Camp, the Diggers and Dealers mining conference and the Main Reef Tavern. This exhibition explores the multi-layers of culture and social class that are shaped by the mining industry in Kalgoorlie-Boulder - a place where work, wealth, family, nightlife, gold and ‘Utopia’ can be found.
The artist residency was commissioned and produced by SPACED for their Rural Utopias project.
This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia. "
