Taylor Reudavey: I Know How Hard It Can Get

8 – 30 September 2017

I Know How Hard It Can Get is a multimedia installation that chronicles unemployment and welfare policy in contemporary Australia. A triad of conflicting voices strive to both question and uphold the ideological convictions that have shaped the current Jobactive program. I Know How Hard It Can Get examines the relationship between authority and authenticity, co-optation and appropriation, and sympathy and contempt.


Taylor Reudavey is a multimedia artist, writer and performer from Perth, Western Australia. She graduated from Curtin University with Honours in 2015 and has exhibited with The Hive Art Space, Free Range Gallery, the City of Perth’s Grand Lane Light Locker Art Space, and the Victoria Park Centre for the Arts. She is currently the Artist in Residence at Curtin University’s School of Design and Art and will be featured in Geraldton Regional Art Gallery’s upcoming WORLDLINE exhibition. I Know How Hard It Can Get is her third solo show.

Opening night Friday September 8 from 6pm.

Public program Thursday September 28 from 6pm.
Join Taylor Reudavey in conversation with Graham Mathwin as they discuss the exhibition.
