I’m in Melbourne at the moment, for the launch of The Sham exhibition at George Paton Gallery. It’s to be an adaptation of my Bilateral Petersham project for the gallery, which I first did in 2007 at Artspace in Sydney.
The exhibition will launch on Wed 29 July, 5-7pm. The show runs from Tuesday 28 July 09 â€“ Friday 7 August 09 between the hours of 11:00AM â€“ 5:00PM, and I will be in there most of the time minding the gallery. Which is George Paton Gallery, second floor, Union House, Melbourne University. So pop in and have a cuppa eh.
All the fine details are here. I’ll also be doing a couple of talks while I’m in town.
The first is at Victoria University, at the invitation of Jason Maling. 12-1pm on Thursday the 30th of July. It’s at the Flinders St Campus of Vic Uni, 300 Flinders St, Melbourne, 17th Floor – Art and Design department. It’s be a general artist-talk about my stuff for the lunchtime lecture series at the uni art school.
The second will be at the Centre of PostColonial Studies. It’s specifically focused about the functioning of my blogging as art process. All the details are here.
Look forward to catching up with Melbourne friends at any of these events!
If you’re still in Sydney, this week is your last chance to catch Imprint, an exhibition curated by Anneke Jaspers at Artspace. In the show, I’ve collaborated with Louise Curham under the banner of the Teaching and Learning Cinema (TLC) to re-enact Guy Sherwin’s 1976 work Man with Mirror. You can see details of the progress of this work over at the TLC blog. I’ll update it with more notes soon, and a downloadable pdf brochure/poster about our piece too!
