Comment on Define gallery purpose before picking a site: Bruce Walker by Evelyne Roullet.

Marina Strocchi, I agree with you.
Personally I have an artifact from Africa with no authentication, and Aboriginal artifacts done especially from me by different artists (I had not even asked their names).
It was Ngapartji Ngapartji.
That the way it was before the commercialisation of arts and crafts.
“There is a feeling among some Aboriginal people that the government, tourism and general economic interests are just appropriating their art and culture for the benefit of businesses rather than having their interests at heart.” And they are in majority correct.
“Be at the heart of the inland capital (at the very centre of town physically, socially and spiritually)”.
Does the CBD fit the criteria?

Air traffic: Looking down on Alice
“There will now be less capacity for Centralians to travel directly to Cairns and Perth.”
It has been like this for a longtime: Qantas wanting to fill up its planes had Cairn – Perth directed to Alice Springs with a feeble excuse and Alice Springs Perth cancelled with another excuse.
Then, everybody was put on a Melbourne flight, made to wait for hours for a Perth flight. Tough, like if your holidays or business were ruined.

Travelers around the world go to specific places for their attractions / landmarks.
What would be Paris without the Eiffel Tower? Sydney without the bridge, the opera house? London without Big Ben?
What will be left of Alice in years to come? Nothing – it will be just a town in Australia.

Ms Moss is not an artist and has no idea of what makes Alice Springs a town like Alice.


Anzac Oval will be site for gallery: Gunner
Mister Gunner is playing with words, splitting hair.
Normally a precinct is a building and its boundary like a school precinct: building and playground. Vehicles cannot enter a precinct (except service vehicles).
An oval is a play/sport ground. Part of our oval will become included in the precinct and the rest will be car parks joined to the gallery precinct.
It will not be big enough for a large tourist bus, caravans and the local wishing to park near the CBD.
