Table of Contents

Rural Utopias is a program of residencies and exhibitions in rural and remote Western Australia. Artists Jacky Cheng with Salva­to­re Caruso and Nigel Smith, Jo Darby­shire with Andrea Williams, Nathan Gray, Alana Hunt, Georgie Matting­ley, Bennett Mil­ler, Eliza­beth Ped­ler, Sarah Rodi­gari, Tina Stefanou and Ana Tiquia develop­ed new works alongside their host commu­nities, res­p­on­ding to new social, environmental, and histori­cal contexts.

The program is presented by Spaced with The Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Spaced acknowledges the Aboriginal people of the many traditional lands and language groups of Western Australia, on which our projects take place. We recog­nise their continuing connection to these lands and waters, and thank them for their culture, knowledge, strength and ongoing custodianship. With our respects to their Elders past, present and future.
