A fresh new collective invites you to see the work we have been making together this year. It includes a range of traditional printmaking techniques and some courageous experiments.
You’ll see work by Callum Agnew, Stella Chen, Rinaldo Hartanto, Judith Harvey, Robert Ives, Alexandra Mitchell, Jack Nibbs, Jessica Raymond, Anna Russell and Olivia Wilson. There’s also an introduction to the community art project by Duly Priced Drinks at Bilpin, where we participated in making collographs.
Aura: Repetition, Reproduction, and the Mark of the Artist is a curatorial project I have been working on for the past year. The exhibition opens on Friday, July 21st at 6pm at Manly Art Gallery & Museum.
An exhibition of ten Australian artists, who use the perceived shortcomings of printmaking, to confound the viewer’s expectations of the medium and re-ignite the aura of the mechanically reproduced artwork. See wall-based prints, installations, sculpture and video from Alison Alder, Anna Kristensen, Ben Rak, Erica Seccombe, Gary Carsley, Judy Watson, Michael Kempson, Milan Milojevic, Samuel Tupou and Tony Curran.
Exhibition catalogue availble with essays by Ben Rak, Glenn Barkley & Tim Gregory
