What happens to a city when its citizens forget their muse? It becomes a facade, beautiful to look at, but expectations remain unfulfilled. The artists continue to work under this city’s streets, invisible to office and economy. City of Muses looks to share the questions posed by artists about their city.
Erin M McCuskey grew up in a large Irish emigrant family in regional Victoria. Her love of the moving image grew from family films and transparencies created by her father, and the gatherings to view them. McCuskey works across many media, specialising in film, photography and both spoken and written word. In 1989 she established Yum Studio, a creative media company engaging with audiences through story and cinematic stylings. She has a passion for producing projects with human rights at their core, and creating media that is thought provoking and entertaining. Her short films, installations and commissions have screened both nationally and internationally, including at the Melbourne International Film Festival and White Night Ballarat.
