Paramor Prize – art and innovation 2017 @ Casula Powerhouse

18 Feb 2017 23 April 2017

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.

Currents – Anna Madeleine @ Canberra Contemporary Arts Centre Braddon

9 Dec 2016 – 11 Feb 2017

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.
