Chalkboards and Bulletin Boards line the walls of every school. Over time, lessons, graphs, chalk drawings and rebellious scribblings all find their place on these reusable surfaces, and then succumb to erasure and removal, slipping into a long history of text and image-based communication. The Boards Project contributes to this fleeting exchange of information at King George Public School. 16 artists present a combination of thoughtful, site-responsive work and poetic, personal work inspired by lived experience, on boards throughout the school. Each piece imparts an idea that materializes briefly for two weeks and then is erased, becoming part of the school’s rich history.
