Curated by Joni Taylor from the New Landscapes Institute, this ground-breaking exhibition explores the history and the future of the Travelling Stock Routes network. This vast system of shared regional trails has inspired contemporary artists from across the country to respond with video, sculptural and sound-based installations.
The exhibition includes work by emerging, established and highly innovative artists including Zanny Begg, Megan Cope and Bill Buckley, Hayden Fowler, Future Method Studio, Grandeza, Josephine Starrs and Leon Cmielewski, and The Wired Lab.

At Wiradjuri Reserve
Join Future Method, Wiradjuri elders Lyn Syme & Kevin Williams, Academic Peter Spooner and Lawyer Maeve Parker for a conversation about the spatial politics, origins and futures of the Travelling Stock Reserves.
Our Commons and the Travelling Stock Reserves (TSR's) contain practical, environmental and cultural resources that are depended upon today as they have been for millennia. We are only now beginning to understand the origins of them and their relationship to indigenous trade routes, aboriginal sites of occupation and their significance to biodiversity.
This public forum is part of the Public Program for The Long Paddock, an exhibition of creative responses to the past, present and futures of the TSR network.
