Exhibition | Chris Bond – Tormentor | LUMA

Exhibition Opening 6 – 8pm Wednesday 5 October 2016 Exhibition Dates: 5 October – 9 December 2016 Curated by Michael Brennan Fictional documentary material and sculptural works made in the body-mind of imagined Norwegian artist Tor Rasmussen (a temporary resident at Bond’s house in late 2014), are at once deceptive, self-deceptive, characterised and representational, and speak of discord and fracture. Tormentor charts Bond’s relationship with Rasmussen (also known as Kraken), determining the value of embodying and performing multiple invented artistic identities within a practice, encouraging imbalance and enabling unlikely action. This exhibition will be the last presented at La Trobe University…

Narratives were informed by external – and often mysterious – forces, both seen and unseen; the exhibition shifted registers between sincerity and…

Exhibition | The Jesus Trolley | City Gallery

The Jesus Trolley | 30 years of Desmond Hynes pushing art and Jesus on the streets of Melbourne curated by Joanna Bosse Melbourne has been a stomping ground for street preachers for more than a century. In recent decades, Desmond Hynes has been the Nº. 1 evangelist, proselytising through both the oral and written word. The lately ‘retired’ Hynes combines the visual power of art and advertising on hand-painted signs and shopping trolleys covered in Jesus slogans. Unrefined and yet savvy, his unique hand-lettering is urgent and compelling, transcending the religious content of his god-fearing message. Opening Night: Thursday 8th…

About the Exhibition We who love: The Nolan slates is a window into the world of renowned Australian painter Sidney Nolan (1917–1992), reflecting a time of artistic experimentation and personal upheaval. From December 1941 to June 1942, Nolan made around 32 paintings on roofing slates. They reveal his distinctive preference for non-art materials, his avant-garde aspirations and his literary interests. Through the paintings, Nolan recorded the end of his marriage, new relationships with patrons John and Sunday Reed, and fears arising from the war in the Pacific. Concerned that there might not be ‘many more tomorrows’, Nolan painted the slates…

Exhibitions | Andrew Browne – shadow sites – Steve Carr | CCP

GALLERY ONE Andrew Browne | Suddenly Slowly The installation Suddenly Slowly juxtaposes photographic notations, studies, unique images and series – virtually the artist’s taxonomy – to describe a greater landscape, abstracted and estranged from reality. Drawn from photographic imagery created over more than two decades this immersive field is derived from multiple disparate and happenchance encounters with the observed world. The images – to paraphrase Marc Auge – act as a brake on the fade of memories (and the…

Exhibitions | Marcin Wojcik – Anna Horne – Paula Hunt – David Attwood and Clare Peake – Carla Adams | Bus Projects

  Exhibition Dates: Opening Wednesday 16 6-8pm until April 2nd. Malleable Scenario. Marcin Wojcik. Gallery 1. Reaching ‘the scene’ attempts to manifest the elusive state available only to those who commit themselves to a moment’s endurance. Going alone with eyes set on some enigmatic endpoint on a set course / line / road. In this body of work, the re-constructed scenario’s pits the solitary athlete (a cyclist) against multiple horizons (the scene) in a perpetual pursuit. Here the cast cyclist peddles endlessly forward around a velodrome, up a mountain as well as attempting to chase the unattainable. The aim of the task…
