WCTA Finalist Artists Q&A
Sunday 20 June, 10.30am - 12 noon
Hosted by the Wangaratta Art Gallery Friends, join Gallery Members and Staff for a champagne breakfast to hear firsthand from award finalists and the acquired prize winners. Hear in depth about the artworks, the artist, and their practice.
Tristan Chant is a multi-disciplinary artist working across print, collage and textile mediums. His practice initiates a dialogue about our relationship to images and the way in which we consume them. Mining images culled from art history, adult magazines, children’s books and popular media – Chants work is at turns political, humorous, and poetic.

Clare McCracken is a mixed-media conceptual artist working on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Peoples, a part of the federation of the Kulin Nations. Her practice includes large-scale immersive installations, fine art objects and contemporary performance works. She often works site-responsively, across disciplines and collaboratively with other artists to create works that interrogate contemporary social, political and environmental issues from an Australian perspective. Her most recent body of work has focused on the way that mobile technologies such as the car, aeroplane, ship and Internet shape the way we perceive and inhabit space.
