Black Matter refers to the Gondwana- the unified Southern Hemisphere continental entity that amalgamated at the beginning of the Palaeozoic and progressively fragmented. It deepens into its scientific hypothesis and searches for present environmental, cultural and social connections by of this early landmass by weaving fragments of this ancient link through an immersive residency program for Australian and Chilean artists. 

Black Matter encourages cross-cultural exchange based on reciprocity through a succession of co-funded art residencies, quick-response exhibitions and multi-platform publications that investigate translation as a process where knowledge is rooted to its deep geographic memory.

Black Matter is supported by Arts Tasmania and Ministerio de las Culturas, las Artes y el Patrimonio de Chile.
