'With a captive travelling audience aboard the train, T-SAC aimed to bring together a series of 3 exhibition projects for this audience to encounter from the 26th April- 2nd May 2011; an international open call postcard exhibition, a film and video exhibition by UK and Australian artists, and a series of performances by Australian artists that would be shown on the platforms the train stopped at en-route.
Presenting artworks from tangible postcard format to video to performances of mundane or everyday actions on railway platforms, we aimed to take a “something for everyone” approach to the arts centre. A question we have continually asked during this project has been “What is an arts centre?”. We wanted to test the boundaries of presenting a variety of art genres to a culturally diverse audience and see how enthusiastically this audience could respond to our project; engaging with art in an unexpected environment.'
