A curated exhibition by Kate Hill and Eugene Howard building on the Boorhaman Residency of Spring, 2017.

Boorhaman Residency Project took place during the Spring of 2017 and is a project devised by artists Kate Hill and Eugene Howard, the directors of Residency Projects. This project has an overarching emphasis on how art practices can intersect with place, communities and environments to uncover a deeper level of understanding and connectedness.

The Boorhaman Project took the form of an artist-in-residence and project commission, with artists Chaco Kato and Dylan Martorell living and working in the small rural town of Boorhaman. Both artists responded to different site-specific elements through their works, and worked with community members through the delivery of workshops which contributed to the final project outcome, to be exhibited at Wangaratta Art Gallery.
