Art Projects/Public Art

Jennifer Isaacs covers project management from conceptual development through the commissioning of work to the installation of public art, especially works with an indigenous content.

Past projects have included the commissioning, management and installation of Aboriginal works for new international airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Darwin and the development of 20 works by indigenous artists and communities commissioned for Expo 2000 at Hanover. This beautiful installation, featuring a five metre long suspended dome of spinifex grass and commissioned items from many communities on the theme of "Space" was designed to highlight the ways in which remote tribal communities could engage with industry in the new millennium. This project also stimulated G. Yunupingu to embark on her Milky way star theme "Universe" which produced her win in the 2004 National Aboriginal Art Awards followed by a highly successful exhibiting career showing works on this theme. The larger-than-life possibilities of Spinifex woven sculptures was to be further developed winning these desert artists the 3D section of the Telstra National Indigenous Art Awards with a life size Toyota 4WD woven fibre vehicle.
