100 Years explores the diverse history, architecture and location of The Substation building. 30 artists from across disciplines will be in residence over two weeks, taking over the entire gallery. Working with imagery, performance, documentation, sound and installation, the artists will respond to and interpret the site in celebration and recognition of our centennial.

The Council Of Svoo is an open collective of artists responding to the site in an architectural, historical, and socio-political context. Based out of RMIT Bachelor of Fine Art, part of their core methodology involves engaging with new and emerging artists, and building networks through site-responsive projects.

Thanks to the 30 artists featured in The Council Of Svoo’s 100 Years project:

Zoë Bastin, Christian Bishop, Tobias Brodel, Te’ Claire, Chris Dalvean, Mig Dann, Charlotte Dayman, Susannah Jo Foster, Carol Kirkwood Gardner, Arie Rain Glorie, Hans Van Hans, Cristal Johnson, Jessika K, Jasper Killick, Leana Kim, Imogen Kotsoglo, Tracey Lamb, Miranda Liebscher, Linda Loh, Kirsty Macafee, Roynae Mayes, Gabrielle Leah New, Mira Oosterweghel, Tricia Page, James Parkinson, Amy Prcevich, Katrin Repnau, Steven Rhall, KT Sunny, Ann Zomer
