excerpts from John Reid's catalogue article:

Sydney’s Alfred Park Budget Accommodation
in Redfern was the venue of choice.
The US delegation, Bill Gilbert, Yoshimi
Hayashi, Cedra Wood and Blake Gibson, all
associated with the University of New Mexico
(UNM) field-based visual art research
program, Land Arts, met their Australian
counterpart and host, John Reid, Field
Studies, School of Art, Australian National
University (ANU), in the rear courtyard
colonised by ... budget travellers. It was
early evening Wednesday, 1st June 2011...

...In the eight days that remained before
departure at the end of June the Land
Arts group and John Reid were joined by
Liz Coats, Fran Ifould, Micky Allan, Frank
Thirion, Felicity Green, Kevin Miller and Bryn
Jones for an intensive foray to Calperum
Station in South Australia’s Riverland.
Heike Qualitz, Amelia Zaraftis, Amanda
Stuart, Caroline Huf and Wendy Teakel
followed with supplementary Calperum
trips. Welcomed and briefed by Dr Grant
Whiteman, Manager of Riverland Operations
for the Australian Landscape Trust
(charged with the ecological conservation
of Calperum Station and its extensive
mallee landscape), the artists responded
with creative enthusiasm. This catalogue
documents the exhibition that resulted from
this international group of visual artists.
