Reading Spaces

  • LOCATION: East Space : Parkes
  • ARTIST/S: Caren Florance
  • WHEN: 6pm to 7pm
    5 April 2017


Reading Spaces is a temporary ‘reading room’ installation, showcasing creative publishing outcomes, and presenting Caren’s collaborations with several poets and artists.

The reader (you!) is a vital contributor to the work, breathing life into the work by reading it. There is a performance as part of this exhibition – please see the listing for Sounding/Working Papers.


Caren Florance is a textual artist/designer/craftsperson who works reactively to other people’s words and ideas. She has shown work predominantly in visual arts venues, but her work is collected mainly by libraries. Within this exhibition she has played with Angela Gardner, Melinda Smith, Owen Bullock, Sarah Rice, and a number of other local and international poets. All of these artists are fabulous and successful in their own right. This exhibition is the culmination of years of PhD research, so both the University of Canberra and the Federal Government need to be thanked and acknowledged for their generous support.
