Tracking Echoes of Home
An AASRN online project in association with Echoes of Home.

Tracking Echoes of Home is the online research resource for Echoes of Home: Memory and Mobility in Recent Austral-Asian Art.

An initiative of the Museum of Brisbane and curated by Christine Clark (Independent Curator and Exhibitions Officer, National Portrait Gallery), Echoes of Home features works by 14 Australian and Australian-based artists of Asian descent. The exhibition opened at the Museum of Brisbane in 2005 to critical and audience acclaim; and through Visions of Australia support, it tours nationally to selected metropolitan and regional venues between 2006 and 2008.

Convened by Dean Chan, this AASRN online project tracks the exhibition’s national tour in 2007-8. The project website provides a free access archive for this exhibition by collating curatorial essays, images of the artworks, and other resource materials. "Tracking Echoes of Home" is also a key aspect of the exhibition’s public program in 2007-8. Local responses to the exhibition at each of its touring venues will be invited and published online. These responses, which include contributions by AASRN members, provide a valuable record of the exhibition’s plural meanings and its diverse reception at the different locales.
