spaced

spaced is a recurring event of Australian and international socially engaged art that showcases newly commissioned artworks developed in response to the distinctiveness of Western Australian sites and communities. Conceived and coordinated by International Art Space (formerly IASKA), spaced brings together international and Australian artists with communities throughout Western Australia to explore the relationship between globalisation and local identity. spaced seeks to foster the development of new modes of interaction between artists and communities and establish dialogue between regional, metropolitan and international points of view. 

International Art Space was formed in 1998 by farmers and art professionals interested in exploring cultural identity through art. Since its inception, International Art Space has run over 100 residency-based projects by artists from over 20 countries and organised four national touring exhibitions.
