Maximum Art Skills: a multimedia arts collective
Founded in 2022, M.A.S. is a new artist collective supported by JOLT Arts. The artists are mentored by leading arts practitioners Stelarc, Alister Karl and James Hullick.
In September 2023 M.A.S. presented their first exhibition and collection of works: Head/Spaces at JOLTED Arts Space. Supported by the City of Darebin through the FUSE Festival, each artist presented their own solo contributions to the group:
- Crosling presented: CEO of the Birds – video/sound works
- Tuddenham presented: Altona Meadows – photographs
- Cheevers presented: Whenever – video art
- Meurer presented: Duchess Bashem – digital 2D art
Through the works by these remarkable artists, audiences experience an intersection of worlds and places created through the experiences of artists with neurodiversities.
