Ceramic Revisions II

- group exhibition, 2017

28 November to 23 December

Pots, tiles and clay figurines have taught us fascinating details about ancient societies and "Ceramics Revisions II" conveys how artists interact, form narratives, voice opinions and create aesthetic compositions with this medium today. The second edition of a series that started in 2009, this show ranges from fine vessels to sculpted forms, encompassing a variety of ceramic techniques, as well as clay types - from terracotta to bone china.

Regardless of the form, this final show for 2017 brings together a range of artists who are masters of their medium.

Nina Ross, 'Baby Gestures'

- Black Box Projects, 2017

28 November to 23 December

Baby gestures is a response to holding my sleeping child and trying to remove them from my body without waking. Exploring the performative gestures undertaken to not disturb them, the video uses self portraiture performance for the camera to enact the sometimes subtle and not so subtle bodily movements.

It is not until babies stop breastfeeding that they learn they are not part of their mother's body. This video seeks to represent the separation and individual entities in this close relationship.

Out of Line

- group exhibition, 2017

7 to 25 November

Most works of art start with a simple line, whether that be for a preparatory sketch or giving form to an idea. The field of drawing is therefore one brimming with possibilities, innovation, and cross-pollination. "Out of Line" will pay homage to the fundamental nature of drawing, whilst also aiming to see these lines jump off the page, defy expectations and merge with other fields. This group exhibition will provide a survey of how drawing-based practices comprise a variety of aesthetics, mediums and technologies.

Featuring Margaret Ackland, Rodney James Alexander, Kim Anderson, Lorraine Biggs, Matt Chun, Todd Fuller, Nicci Haynes, Rachael Helmore, Chris Humphries, Melinda Le Guay, Alun R. Jones, Noel McKenna, Peta Minnici, Trudy Moore, Mylyn Nguyen, Catherine O’Donnell, Indigo O’Rourke, Anastasia Parmson, Anna Richardson, Edgar Schilter, Paul White, and Ainsley Wilcock.

- Go West, 2017

13 October to 3 December


Kitchen-Studio, curated by Megan Fizell

- Black Box Projects, 2017

10 October to 4 November

The artists in this exhibition take the space of the kitchen as the site of their performative artwork. The films echo Feminist artists of the 1970s who utilised women's work to challenge traditional ideas of domesticity. Utilising the domestic gesture of cooking and preparing food, the artists interrogate a number of broad themes including the body, labour, and collaboration.

Artists include Hana Hoogedeure & Luke O’Donnell (Australia), Hanne Nielsen & Birgit Johnsen (Denmark), Ana Prvački (United States), Nina Ross (Australia), Miku Sato (Japan), and Kawita Vatanajyankur (Thailand).
