The NelsonS' New Neighbourhood Reader:
Morality Tales for the discerning neighbourhood
PAGES 18 TO 27
The Nelson Brothers attempted to rewrite a series of text books that had been in use in The Neighbourhood for many years. Incorporating both the indigenous and the familiar, the Nelsons hoped to provide a more relevant educational experience for their fellow inhabitants. Pages 18 - 27 have been exhibited at the 2010 Liverpool Biennial and at the Morningside Gallery in Barbados in 2011. They are currently on display at the Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart, Australia as part of "Colonial Afterlives", an exhibition that will tour Australia. In each location audiences are invited to complete any of the various exercises presented in this modest selection of pages from their exhilarating educational endeavour.
