Notes from the Field: Bogong Centre for Sound Culture
When: Friday 26 February – Sunday 27 June 2021
Where: Paul Ramsay Galleries and ANZ/Zauner Grand Foyer, MAMA
For ten years the tiny alpine village of Bogong, Victoria has been a hub for artists working with sound and experimental visual arts practices. The Bogong Centre for Sound Culture (B-CSC), stationed in Bogong village, has served as a supportive residency and a forum for artists drawn to the area as a geographically isolated site of great natural beauty, where the environmental impacts of twentieth century technological developments are clearly observed.
Notes from the Field gathers works by recent B-CSC residents who have travelled from across Australia and from around the world. As the exhibition title suggests their artistic output takes the form of field work – photographs, installations, maps, drawings, and sound works that have been made in and in response to the landscape of Bogong.
Notes from the Field marks Murray Art Museum Albury’s first major exhibition program driven by an artist enterprise from within our region. This significant endeavour highlights the artistic strengths of our region, their diversity, and the capability of artists in regional Australia to develop and foster experimental practices that are world-leading in their vision.
Featuring the work of:

A live program of artist and curator talks along with performances will take place on the opening weekend of the exhibition.
This exhibition is supported by the Dobell Exhibition Grant, funded by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation and managed by Museums & Galleries of NSW.
