Dubbo’s own Kim V. Goldsmith is covering a few bases at ARTLANDS, starting with her new soundscape and video projection work, Volucres, which will be part of the Festival program. Inspired by the natural landscapes and ecologies of western NSW and informed by her work as a professional communicator in the natural resources and rural sectors, her multi-media and sensory installations investigate the complex relationships humans have with the natural environment.
Goldsmith will also be wearing her arts administrator hat, as the project manager of the new public art project in Dubbo, BOOMDubbo. She’ll be presenting a short talk at the Conference on the Friday afternoon about how BOOMDubbo has sought to give new meaning and value to spaces within the city’s CBD through art. On the Saturday afternoon, she’ll guide a walking tour of the artworks in the CBD commissioned by BOOMDubbo since September 2015, providing insight into the significance of the portraits in the BOOMDubbo collection and about the artists she’s worked with over the past year.
