Open Borders is an exhibition of contemporary regional art featuring 40 artists from all 12 regions of Western Australia. It is the culmination of the three-year Mycelium project, created in response to the closed borders of the COVID-19 pandemic. The project has facilitated and presented the work of more than 160 regional artists and curators as a way to nurture resilience and sustainability.

Macknsons was responsible for the sensitive transport of artworks to the John Curtin Gallery in Bentley. The artworks were collected from 12 regions of WA, including Geraldton, Dwellingup, Denmark, Esperance, Carnamah, Port Hedland, Kununurra, Northcliffe, Ravensthorpe, Kalgoorlie, Narrogin, and Margaret River.

Jacqui, the Registrar of Exhibitions at the John Curtin Gallery, sent a letter to Macknsons to thank them for their hard work transporting the artworks. She said ‘the last shipment arrived safely, including a massive ladder that had to be walked around the building because it didn’t fit in our huge industrial lift. And a massive thanks to the awesome crew who handled that with such grace and ease! And the driver who handled it solo at the collection point!’

She also thanked the crew for their professionalism and care and said it had been wonderful working with them and looks forward to the return deliveries in a couple of months.

This exhibition is made possible through the support of the Department of Local Government, Sport, and Cultural Industries and the Regional Exhibitions Touring Boost, supported by ART ON THE MOVE. Macknsons is available to assist any Arts and Cultural organisation that requires sensitive freight transportation within WA or interstate.
