Talk by Danny Lacy

Grey Projects in partnership with The Art Incubator is pleased to present a talk by visiting Melbourne based curator Danny Lacy.

Join us on Saturday 1 August at 4.30pm for this talk, in which Lacy will discuss his curatorial practice which has used collaboration as a method for the production of new work. The talk will focus on the Inverted Topology project that began in 2002 as a collaborative experiment. Challenging the boundaries between artist/curator and process/production, Inverted Topology evolved into a multi layered project, expanding to incorporate new collaborating artists and constantly adapting to site-specific environments.
