SPEAKER: Kim V. Goldsmith
Based near Dubbo in Central NSW, Kim V. Goldsmith's art practice explores the wide ranging territories of rural and regional lands – looking for patterns, spaces, sound, movement, and accompanying narratives as they ebb and flow on the seasons. She uses sound, moving images, including 360-video, and digital media installation to offer alternate perspectives and narratives. She believes rural and regional locations are a rich environment to create interesting, engaging and universal artworks, informed by the landscapes and communities in which they’re developed; environments that don’t always conform to expectations.
Kim is also a media and marketing communications consultant, who has specialised in telling the stories of rural and regional Australia over the past two and half decades, following several years as an ABC Radio Rural Reporter and freelance print journalist. She works across a range of regional sectors including agriculture, natural resource management, regional arts, small business and local government.
