The Traveling Show

Mixed media, 2017-2018
Plein air pastels, gouache paintings, soft sculptures, tapestries, virtual reality, and In Australia LIVE! performance

Elio Icaza Milson (Panama) and Genevieve Marsh (USA), from DMA TER studio, presented their travelogue from a 40,000 km journey across Australia. Created between October 2016 and October 2017 from their custom camper van, the artworks included embroidered landscapes, fabric sculptures inspired by ancient rock paintings, and plein air pastels. The show shared learnings from world heritage, such as our innately human connection to landscapes. The artists performed an episode of their storytelling podcast, ‘In Australia’, at the opening in Panama City, Panama.
