Limn File Charter
Limn File is a collaborative collective defined by the diverse art practices of the participating artists. It seeks to provide a forum for the conversations and arguments between current Sydney artists by curating and creating exhibitions and projects at art spaces in Australia and internationally. The exhibitions record the dialogue and dynamic exchange of ideas that would not occur if operating in solitude. The cooperative charter of the Limn file creates dialogue but never imposes a middle ground. Such honesty is reflected in the diversity of artworks as well as the diversity of ideas, themes and conjecture that underpin the work of each participating artist. Limn file is not a closed forum, in addition to its regular contributors, we invite other artists to contribute to the discourse.
Limn File is an approach to the wider domain of recent Australian art practices, and the broader context of visual arts. Matt Glenn, Nicholas Hudson-Ellis, Melissa Laing, Gyles Rider and Michele Zarro may follow different lines of enquiry but their understanding and appreciation of issues pivotal to contemporary artists in Sydney is analogous.
