LATITUDES

Latitudes is a project which engages emerging and established Western Sydney visual artists, performers and writers to create unique works in response to geographical location, museum Collection objects and themes relevant to their experience growing up in Western Sydney.

Traversing movement, music, and art, Latitudes weaves together nine artistic commissions in three dynamic short films that explore themes of noise, distance, and perspective. The films had a physical premiere as a part of Sydney Festival 2023 and are currently premiering digitally on Nowness to their global audience.

Featuring the films Sometimes to One Hundred, 151ºE, and Window.
