standing still; looking back, looking forward celebrates First Nations identities today, yesterday and tomorrow. Featuring new works by Dean Cross, Brad Darkson, Amala Groom & Nicole Monks, Ashley Perry and Katie West, this exhibition is a testimony to the non-prescription of the Aboriginal experience, asserting the complexities of navigating culture and sovereign knowledge through a range of interdisciplinary ideas, methods and media.

The selected artists offer new perspectives on Aboriginality that intersect and celebrate non-linear concepts of time, the continuing practice of culture, and self-determination in a contemporary urban context. The works in standing still; looking back, looking forward, collectively highlight the plurality of life across and between the multiples in cultures – promoting and provoking knowledges and understandings of the diaspora of Aboriginality as a contemporary experience.

The Clocktower Gallery


Bruno Pasqualini 
Floating Worlds
Thursday 26 April – Wednesday 27 June

Bruno Pasqualini is an artist from Bologna, Italy, who now resides in Australia after travelling through Europe, the Middle East, India and South East Asia.  

The artist has a reflective and reclusive personality, which he expresses through his abstract paintings. At the same time, he maintains a relationship with the natural world through the painting techniques and colours used.

Pasqualini’s practice has consistently focused on a disenchantment with pop, developing into a series of canvases that are visually strong and have an almost violent relationship with nature.


The Clocktower Cafe Gallery features a changing selection of paintings, drawings, prints and other two dimensional media, created by early career artists from the local community.

The gallery is offered free of charge and exhibitions are programmed based on availability. some of the artists included in this years program include: Lauren O'Meara, Mohamed Abumeis, Josh Simpson and Bruno Pasqualini.

In 2018 the Incinerator Gallery will present off-site exhibitions in a range of spaces across Moonee Valley in council-owned facilities.

Starting at the Crown Street Stables cafe space, Incinerator staff will curate a display of works from Moonee Valley's art collection.

The new exhibition program is an opportunity to liven up new spaces with ever changing artwork throughout Moonee Valley, and it is also an opportunity for the community to engage with visual art in new and maybe even surprising encounters.
