Interview - Holly Williams, Curator, Creative Accounting

 

Drawing from old currencies, banking archives and contemporary art, Creative Accounting scratches below the surface of our economic system to reveal money’s enigmatic side. Money is many things at once: an abstract rendering of value; an agent of propaganda; a decorative device. It plays a central role in all of our lives yet is often overlooked as an object of contemplation. At a time when money is becoming increasingly abstract Creative Accounting speculates on its wider value.

Creative Accounting will tour to six venues in NSW, Victoria and Queensland from 2016 to 2018.
