Deborah Kelly data bycatch project

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.

  • fulleg March 31, 2015 almost forgot the whole night started with Yininmadyemi which DK had on FB.
  • fulleg March 31, 2015 Did the commercial one at karen Woodbury - didn't feel like adding other OZ artist as I was too preciccupied iwth AEAF exhib which looked good, so I decide to fill out Brown CVouncil ( who were exhibiting at AEAF) by adding 2 new records. Kate Blackmore and Frances Barrett. so now all parts of brown council are up.
  • fulleg April 1, 2015 APRIL 1; I informed DK of what I was doing and after some natural ambivalence based around an initial 'sense of responsibility' , she responded today rather cheekily by tagging me in a FB post about Tim Silver. I bit and checked is was on DAAO- NO! So 1 x new Record Tim Silver, I new Exhibition Sullivan and Strumpt- the one she tagged me in. 1 x new Work. Then thinking upon D's concern that everyone did have such complete records ( perhaps as hers, which isn't bad), I resolved to add a few details to each new record motivated by her. So no STUBs in the bycatch. added Biennale 12 of Adelaide, which shockingly , was not in DAAO. and added him to You're so Vain: five contemporary sculptors (Karen Woodbury) which we had. Karen Woodbury caught my eye, bx I entered it yesterday for DK. I note this exhib now had FOUR sculptors or the FIVE its title referred to. Google- Trove 1st link found missing name Lisa Roet- she's in DAAO- LINK her to YOUR so vain and now that record has complete artist list. sweet. nice place to stop.
