International Art Space (spaced)

General information

Brief description of organisation

spaced is a recurring international event of socially engaged and context-responsive art conceived and coordinated by International Art Space (formerly IASKA).

spaced brings together international and Australian artists with communities throughout Western Australia to explore the relationship between globalisation and local identity. spaced seeks to foster the development of new modes of interaction between artists and communities and establish dialogue between regional, metropolitan and international points of view.

spaced comprises commissioned projects developed in partnership with local arts groups and other organisations, particularly in socially, geographically and economically disadvantaged communities. The program focuses on modes of practice that aim to produce work by engaging with, and intervening in, everyday social relations and situations. Special emphasis is given to approaches that attempt to open art to non-artistic forms of social practice such as science and technology, social activism, design and architecture. This approach is representative of important aspects of the contemporary international art scene and reflects the artistic line that IAS has been developing since its inception.
