CURATORS: JANE STEWART, PAULA SILVA, SARAH JONES, DAVID CROSS, DAMIEN QUILLIAM, FIONA LEE, NICOLE DURLING, FERNANDO DO CAMPO // Iteration:Again is a series of new art commissions that focus on the idea of public art as something that might transform our experience of place over a period of time. It is made up of leading national and international artists who are interested in linking the possibility of change, sequence and intervention into an engagement with public art practice. It provides a rare opportunity for a range of different contemporary art organisations to work together on the realisation of a trans-institutional project that consists of 13 commissions, a symposium, and a significant publication that documents the series.

Out of Site

SARA MAHER, TRACEY COCKBURN, ELIZABETH LADA GRAY, ALYSSA SIMONE, SHAUN MCGOWAN, NIGEL FARLEY, BRADY DENEHEY

CURATOR: CLAIRE NEEDHAM // Out of Site comprises six Tasmanian artists’ responses to various sites of incarceration in colonial Van Dieman’s Land incorporating painting, sculpture, video, printmaking and digital imaging. The show examines the residual psychological presence that haunts these sites, and the transformation that occurs when site-specific work is removed from its original context.

Erotographomania

DEJAN KALUDJEROVIC, CLAIRE LAMBE, NANCY MAURO-FLUDE, SALLY REES, NOEL SKRZYPCZAK, BEN TERAKES, PAUL EMMANUEL, ANDREW NEWMAN

CURATOR: SARAH JONES // Erotographomania (originally a term for perverse and obsessive love letter writing) aims to make parallels between the unconscious investment that artists make to address an audience and the intense erotic delusions played out in the exchange of love letters. Both produce a circuit of libidinal exchange that demands recognition. Both involve a fraught transferential displacement centred on an object of communication.
