Arc Eight - Vertice

James Tapscott


James Tapscott explores the physiology of our perception with a new site specific installation, Arc Eight – Vertice.

This work comprises of a seemingly diminutive room extending into the Atrium Gallery from the external window.

Its finite dimensions bely the experience awaiting the viewer when they enter and find an infinite line of light that pierces the room’s vertical limits.

The Pho n Twenty Pie

Lahn U- Holroyd

Pho n Twenty

Lahn U- Holroyd's family moved to Melbourne as refugees from Vietnam in 1979.

As an adult and a parent, the artist has come to understand the importance of embracing her parent's traditions whilst continuing to develop her own hybrid customs.

This exhibition investigates the artist's family history and her own contemporary life through still life paintings of the one thing that has always transcended cultural barriers - food.

Opening Night: Friday, 31 March, 6pm - 8pm

Artist & Curator Talk: Saturday, 6 May at 1pm

A New World

Hayden Fowler, Sam Leach, Andrew Mezei, Saffron Newey, Christopher Pease and Joan Ross


Landscape painting in Australian Art history, from its 18th Century colonial beginnings, has told the story of the European view to this continent, its Peoples and its unique flora and fauna.

The exhibition A New World explores uses of colonial imagery in contemporary art practices and suggests that in a post-colonial age of climate change and environmental uncertainty we have a whole new world to understand and explore.

Dialogue 3: Tensioned Structures

Christoph Dahlhausen and Michael Graeve


This third collaborative project by Christoph Dahlhausen and Michael Graeve investigates the tensions between line and area, light and sound, stillness and movement, moment and duration.

Purpose built scaffolding flows from the ground to the mezzanine of the Atrium Gallery and is marked with fluorescent lights and painted panels.

The installation also includes a multi-channel sound composition that further emphasises notions of tension and structure within the work.
