Campbelltown Arts Centre and Sydney College of the Arts to collaborate on new Imperial Slacks exhibition

Campbelltown Arts Centre (CAC) and Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) will be collaborating on a new exhibition that reunites an artist collective who formed the Imperial Slacks group at the turn of the century in Sydney. To be presented at both venues from 14 August until 18 October 2015, Cosmic Love Wonder Lust: The Imperial Slacks Project will exhibit artworks previously shown during the Imperial Slacks Project alongside newly commissioned works.

Established in 1997 within an urban cultural environment, Imperial Slacks operated over five years as a social and cultural experience which functioned as the home, studio and gallery space of sixteen artists. The artist-run space generated a new form of cultural production and inspired forthcoming contemporary art in Australia. Fifteen of these artists will be returning to exhibit in Cosmic Love Wonder Lust. The exhibition will also re-present a number of videos from the personal collections of all the artists, allowing audiences access to the history of Imperial Slacks
