NT library welcomes resident creative Fraser-Bell
Emerging artist C J Fraser-Bell has commenced her residency at the Northern Territory Library (NTL), after being announced as one of four Territory artists to take part in the NT government’s 2018 creative residencies program.
The artists selected for the program share in $90,000 and will take up residencies at NTL, the Araluen Arts Centre and the NT Archives Service.
NTL director Patrick Gregory welcomed the program at the library. ‘The opportunity to have an artist come in and explore our collections, to see them through an artistic lens and to share their discoveries with the community is incredibly energising,’ he said.
Fraser-Bell plans to have a particular focus on the Northern Territory’s arts archive, and LGBTQIA history and pop culture in the Territory. ‘I’ll be making an installation work, creating some zines, and in the new year exploring a performance work inside the library,’ she said.
The three other Territory artists chosen for the program are: Melanie Robson at the Araluen Cultural Precinct (Alice Springs), Caro Macdonald at the NT Archives Service (Darwin), and Tracey Bunn at the NT Archives Service (Darwin).
