In Cahoots: artists collaborate across Country is a major new creative project which sees artists from six Aboriginal art centres partnered with leading independent artists from around the country to produce signi cant new collaborative works through a series of artist residencies.
Presented by FAC, the project will culminate in an exhibition in November 2017 which explores the exciting and challenging nature of collaboration between art centres and both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists.
In Cahoots is led by the Aboriginal art centres at every stage of the project, from selecting the visiting artists and planning the exhibition, to engaging directly with audiences.
