Le Lendemain

The project that will be presented at the George Paton Gallery from the 13th of November to the 8th of
December (opening night on the 30th of November) is called Le Lendemain, meaning in French, the day
after tomorrow, the future. Six artists: Leanne Bock, Rebecca Diele, Kayleigh Gogh, Meredith
Marshallsea, Rachel O Connor, and Christina Darras are the participants, all VCA graduates from the same
COVID cohort from different cultural and professional backgrounds, ages, and creative languages. The
project is curated by Christina Darras.

The residency – exhibition explores the space and time after graduation and the transition from academic to real life. What are the personal experiences of this transition? How are we finding our path reentering the stratosphere of reality? How do we assess our acquired knowledge? How and in which way has our creative thinking and making shifted in VCA? And what does this mean? Can we revisit old ideas with a different, more profound approach?
