Sculpture at Scenic World welcomes new Exhibition Manager
Sculpture at Scenic World welcomes Justin Morrissey as the new Exhibition Manager. Justin brings experience and a fresh perspective to showcasing dynamic and diverse artistic practices at Australia’s only dedicated rainforest exhibition.
The new appointment coincides with the open call for submissions to exhibit in the Jurassic landscape for the 2015 Sculpture at Scenic World in the Blue Mountains.
Justin has a strong background in sculpture, having managed installations at Sculpture by the Sea for seven years. He has also contributed to the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair, curating the show, Re-imagining Roy McIvor, which brought private and Queensland Museum collections to the Cairns Regional Gallery.
He has also attended recent sculpture residencies in the USA and Germany, and aims to use his connections to increase the exposure of Sculpture at Scenic World to international audiences.
Justin said he is looking forward to bringing his experience and ideas to this well-established Sculpture exhibition.
“I will be encouraging artists locally, nationally and internationally to submit their wildest and most wonderful ideas to be presented in this pristine rainforest environment,” he said.
“We will continue to strive to implement design and management processes, planning and operational procedures that minimize any impact our exhibition has on the natural environment.“
Justin is also a keen environmentalist, passionate horticulturalist, bush walker, gardener and permaculturalist and has an interest in social politics, land management and Indigenous affairs.Artwork: Tree line- a diminishing landscape, Kay Andanopoulos, 2013 Image: A Shot Above Photography & Imaging
