The Mill's Exhibition Space highlights the process behind art-making and aims to make process more available to audiences.
This change brings audiences deeper into the process of making and positions them as central to artistic research. The Exhibition Space operates with a studio-like mentality where knowledge arises through participation and experimentation.
The Exhibition Space features four residencies per year, alongside feature exhibitions. Each resident artist will spend 12-weeks in the Exhibition Space, working towards deepening their practice through discussions, forums, workshops, research and artist talks - both with the artistic community and the general public. The Mill will expedite the research by facilitating connections to community groups for the artist to engage with, expanding their area of research.
The Mill believes that art positions itself within transitions and passages; it opens opportunities for public incursions into the private and vice versa. Our residency program considers this as the potential performativity of practice.
