Craig Walsh: Digital Odyssey commenced in 2010 as a national, multi-venue tour and artist residency bringing internationally respected artist Craig Walsh to rural and remote locations throughout Australia. The project formed as a collaboration between Craig Walsh and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), along with State and regional organisations and community groups. Recent projects include a residency and collaboration with the Murujuga Aboriginal corporation in the Pilbara, Western Australia and a resulting Solo exhibition (Embedded) in 2013 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
