Beyond the Field (Still)

Beyond the Field (still) presents the work of seventeen artists across two venues – Moonah Arts Centre and Contemporary Art Tasmania. The intention is to explore the work of contemporary artists whose practices sit in a similar genre to the 1968, NGV exhibition, The Field.

Exploring the variety of experiences that artists draw from, Beyond the Field (Still) asks: what informs the work; what drives the artist; and what sensations do they seek to impart.

OPENS: 6pm Friday 21 September 2018 // EXHIBITION: 22 September - 4 November 2018 // Presented across two locations, in partnership with Moonah Arts Centre.

Delay

JAMES NEWITT

Delay brings together a body of work that explores notions of escape and withdrawal as personal acts of alterity and non-participation that carry political potential. The exhibition will consist of a constellation of elements that revolve around a film titled, I Go Further Under. The visitor will be invited to negotiate a dense, at times claustrophobic, exhibition environment where they will encounter video projection, objects, text-based correspondence and photographic images.
Delay is presented as part of Dark Mofo 2018.
OPENS: 5pm, 8 June 2018 // EXHIBITION: 9 June- 15 July 2018 (PLEASE CLICK THROUGH FOR SCREENING SESSION TIMES) // CONTEMPORARY ART TASMANIA // A FREE EVENT

Neither/Nor

Vivienne Cutbush

Neither-Nor [Art / Writing] is a performance of creative practice processes – thinking as making, reading in fragments, uncertainties and failures, worked and un-worked writing, and everyday conversations. Continual motion and everything in between. The pauses, transitional stages and inconclusive phases. This is a project about neither knowing, nor art and writing. Fragments of text, conversations and image. Neither-nor finding and losing the edges. OPENS: 8 June 2018 // EXHIBITION & CONVERSATIONS: 9 June - 15 July 2018 // CAT PROJECT SPACE

The Blackest Spat

Tim Coad, Emma Magnusson-Reid, Natalie Mather, Eva Nilssen, Dexter Rosengrave

Curated by Linda Crispin for the 2018 CAT Curatorial Mentorship.

For The Blackest Spat, curator Linda Crispin provided a select group of artists a quantity of Semple's Black 2.0. The artists have then responded not only to its unique qualities but also to the idea that the paint was created by a "punk reaction" - Semple's passionate defiance of Kapoor's exclusive right to a colour - aiming to create an exhibition through which, in their chosen media, artists can communicate resistance, defiance and opposition.
OPENS: 6pm Friday 27 April 2018 // EXHIBITION: 28 April - 27 May 2018 // CONTEMPORARY ART TASMANIA
