Gillian Fuller (me) likes to keep Deborah Kelly’s profile up to date on DAAO. She does it because she admires Deborah’s work and wants it to be recognised online.
I also used to be DAAO’s research director and have an ongoing interest in using DAAO as a research tool in all kinds of ways.
I began noticing that as I added details of Deborah’s latest works or exhibitions on DAAO, i would find myself adding in a lot of other records of artists who were associated with Deborah in some way (they exhibited with her, or she’d mention them on her FB feed ( which I use quite a bit to check details of her exhibs).
She was curating a really fascinating and not nearly sufficiently recorded section on australian contemporary art to me and by extension the DAAO. I thought I might start documenting this as of 31 mar 2015 and see if anything develops.
I’m putting 100 as a target-(only bx I want to see if it really does motivate me) but who knows, there’s no destination – this is about a journey.
