TRAIN/ENNIAL – c3 Annual Fundraiser

29th November- 9th December, 11am – 5pm 7 days of the week
OPENING LAUNCH: 29th November 6-8pm

The highly anticipated fifth project in the c3 annual fundraiser series, TRAIN/ENNIAL gives audiences a unique insight into arts practice in the age of the spectacle, showcasing some of Melbourne’s finest emerging and established artists.

TRAIN/ENNIAL uses a number of motifs and actions to explore notions of spectacle, passive consumption, artist’s labour, commodification, box ticking, revenue raising and the very nature of the fundraiser as exhibition format. The exhibition features curated projects, performances, writing and a huge range of individual artworks from artists wishing to support c3’s community.

TRAIN/ENNIAL looks at the form of the mega-blockbuster and contemplates arts practice in the age of the spectacle. Using the train as a metaphor for the professional journey, as artists, how do we navigate the power structures of the art world?

About the c3 Fundraiser Series

In 2014, the Convent’s c3 Contemporary Art Space launched a series of annual curated fundraising exhibitions to assist with the long-term sustainability of the gallery and to raise money to support artists by reducing the gallery fees and paying sales commission. While raising money was the goal of the show, the team was keen to work with fundraising as a creative concept.

50% of funds raised will go directly to artists; the remaining 50% will reduce exhibition fees for 2019.
