An exhibition I love in Canberra each year is the one that features curated art from Government primary and secondary school students in Canberra. The exhibition this year is a great display of work in a large range of media and styles. There is pottery and photography, there is collage and painting, There are more than three hundred works displayed in all three of the M16 exhibition spaces
Each year the Casula Powerhouse hold an exhibition of works that are named as finalists in the Paramor Prize. The prize isnamed in honour of a local artist and seems to focus on adventurous multi-modal art. I love it because of the novelty and the way it challenges my thinking. Art is delivered via screens and other electronic devices, it emerges from sculptural and multi media approaches and there is still a representation of wall based two dimensional creations and all of it seems to stimulate and engage.
I do not put movies on this blog but I have included several samples of the varied art styles to give a sense of the exhibition.
The cube at Gorman House Braddon is a black box of a room that CCAS use to display digital, projected, luminous and other lit artworks. The blurb for this begins Currents consists of an interactive installation and a series of animations that explore the materiality of digital communication.
Anna Madeleine seeks to make visible important elements of our society that are invisible normally through her fragile flickering creations. I have a couple of phone pics below and the link to the very good online catalogue.
