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

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
Saturday 1 April - Sunday 19 May
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.

Even a Stopped Clock.
Katie Lee with Andrew Sainsbury
Saturday 3 June - Sunday 23 July
Katie Lee’s artistic practice is influenced by the dynamics of urban space. She draws on the interactions of humans, animals, architecture and natural forces to make her installations.
For her new work in the Incinerator Gallery’s Atrium space, Katie has engineered a suspended sculpture, made from timber, steel, toughened glass and electric fans.

Andrea Hopgood began exploring the idea of the ‘cloud’ just after the death of her 18 year old son.
The quiet and solitary act of painting helped her transition through the tragedy, whilst the subject matter resonated with the emotional impact of her son’s death.
Cloud investigates the parallels between the different meanings of the cloud and her own stages of grief.
