EDIT-ism is an exhibition curated by Studio 26 and features the works of six artists from the Sunshine Coast who create works that embody the concept of EDIT-ism. To edit means to assemble, to cut, rearrange, alter, adapt, or refine, to direct, delete, or to modify – in order to bring about conformity to a standard, or to suit a particular purpose.
EDIT-ism proposes the regular use of the ability of editing, enhancing the way to revisit usualities, altering current qualities and state in response to a particular purpose, collapsing the interpersonal space between author and subject, space and object. Studio 26 has purposed the concept of EDIT-ism to denote the practice of editing, which runs parallel in the work of artists Michael Ciavarella, Jasmin Coleman, Petalia Humphreys, Jaime Kiss, Carole Roberts and June Sartracom.
By virtue of location Studio 26 has gathered an ensemble of artists who share diverse exhibition experience, including early career artists and established professional artists. EDIT-ism showcases new, contemporary ways that Sunshine Coast artists are engaging with non-objective and reductive practices.
Artists: Michael Ciavarella, Jasmin Coleman, Petalia Humphreys, Jaime Kiss, Carole Roberts and June Sartracom.
