The Art/Text/Clearinghouse project was part of a dual exhibition at the Perth Centre for Photography that opened on 8 February 2012 in Northbridge, Western Australia.
The exhibition was opened by Dr Robert Cook, Curator of Contemporary Art and Photography, Art Gallery of Western Australia in conjunction with the Western Australian Photographic Book Survey and ‘Collective’, an exhibition of contemporary photography.
The project aimed to showcase new books (hand made, digitally printed and offset) highlighting the variety of ways artists and writers work together and to encourage critical writing about art in Western Australia. The project was conceptualised as creating a space of exchange or clearing house to get innovative Art/Text ventures happening in WA.
