Narelle Jubelin: Vision in Motion

Art comes face to face with architecture in this major project by Sydney artist Narelle Jubelin. Vision in Motion animates an Australian history of modernism, presenting a survey of Jubelin’s intricately sewn petit point needlework of the past three decades alongside newly commissioned works inspired by architecture and the built environment.

Guest curators: Ann Stephen and Luke Parker

Meijers + Walsh | The Collector 7: The Processor of Circumstance

The latest instalment of the superfiction ‘Henri Papin – The Collector’ by Hobart-based artists Meijers + Walsh. Deriving traits from literary and cinematic figures, this ongoing project examines aspects of social anthropology through the development of an obsessive character and psychological schema within a series of large scale sculptural installations.

Also showing: Dissonant Visions

Curated works from the Monash University Collection to accompany Vision in Motion. Dissonant Vision presents works by a number of artists from Jubelin’s formative Sydney milieu, including Ian Burn, Rosemary Laing, Tracey Moffat, Jacky Redgate and others.
