As part of Arts Project Australia’s (APA) annual creative program, prominent curators are invited to create an exhibition that places APA artists alongside their peers; leading national and international contemporary artists.  

This initiative seeks to make broader connections with curators, artists, galleries, and museums, making visible the calibre of the work produced by APA artists, and exemplifying their place within the contemporary art landscape. Since its inception, the initiative has resulted in a long list of remarkable exhibitions that have served to generate new partnerships and develop and strengthen relationships. 

Bendable Realities pays tribute to this initiative in APA’s 50th year. Past curators have been invited to select artworks by both APA artists and external artists, creating a dialogue between them. This exhibition celebrates the power of collaboration and meaningful connections, highlighting the gradual reimagining of the art world as a more open, adaptive, and inclusive space for diverse perspectives, experiences, and identities. 

Featuring Tiger Yaltangki, Terry Williams, Roger Walker, Julian Martin, Jan Lucas, Rebecca Scibilia, Clare Milledge, Adrian Lazzaro, Katherine Botten and Bronwyn Hack.

Bendable Realities is co-curated by Jo Salt in collaboration with Vince Alessi, Alex Baker, Geoff Newton, Charlotte Day and Patrice Sharkey.
