Night Visions
15 Dec - 3 Feb 2012
Galleries 1, 2, 3 & Screen Gallery

 

An exhibition that examines the changing light of the night. At night gaps in what we see are filled with atmosphere and forms from our imagination. In addition to this romantic vision of the night, the exhibition pulls in artists who take a more scientific view, to examine true stories and slippages outside what our eyes can comprehend. It also examines the rich references to the night sky in traditional and urban Indigenous culture. This exhibition embodies a point of difference that enables us to embark on a new voyage of seeing.

The stellar line up of artists in this exhibition includes; Gulumbu Yunupingu, Andrew Browne, Dinni Kunoth Kemarre, Josie Kunoth Petyarre, Jon Cattapan, Trent Parke, Mark Kimber, Greg Weight, Dennis Nona, Marc de Jong, Viv Miller, David Stephenson and Waratah Lahy.

SURVIVOR: DADANG CHRISTANTO

21 July - 26 Aug 2012
Gallery 3 & 24:7 Front Window Space

Survivor is a major art project by contemporary Indonesian-Australian artist Dadang Christanto. Initially developed in 2008 as a live protest against an environmental disaster that occurred in East Java which saw hot volcanic mud wipe out 11 villages and destroy many lives, Survivor has since transgressed beyond cultural borders, evolving into a universal, multi-faceted reflection upon human survival and what it means to endure tragic historical events, loss and death.

In the Heart (Magellan Street, Lismore): Clare Twomey

In the Heart (Magellan Street, Lismore): Clare Twomey

15 Dec - 24 Feb 2012
Gallery Upstairs

In the Heart is a celebration of the daily maps created by foot traffic throughout the main streets of Lismore, maps that are marked by the laughter, fear and worry of those who live in or visit the area. The work reflects upon feelings of emptiness and vacancy, concentrating on the vulnerability of the man-made environment once it reaches its use by date, a stage where it is no longer something to be valued and admired.
