About The Last Vestige

The Last Vestige is a multi-arts cross-cultural exhibition presenting the work of a group of contemporary Australian artists, and artists from the Vietnamese arts community.

It aims to present site-specific work, performances, and a launch party on board a floating junk boat between the focus week of the 28th July and the 4th of August 2007. The Last Vestige also extends to on-board artist talks and presentations to promote exchange dialogue between the Australian and Vietnamese arts community.

The Last Vestige is curated by Thea Baumann as part of an arts management residency which will be undertaken in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from April 26th - August 26th 2007.

This residency is an Asialink Project funded by the Australia Council, the Federal Government's arts funding and advisory body and Arts Queensland.

Thea Baumann acknowledges the support of Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor Fellowship for assistance in researching nomadic arts practice in Asia and in the delivery of The Last Vestige arts programme.
