Shotgun 7: Increase Productivity


Shotgun is an awarded opportunity that supports the advancement of selected Tasmanian artist/s through a customised and intensive program of high-level industry access, production assistance and critical engagement. Shotgun 7 artist Grace Herbert presents work developed through the program. Increase Productivity brings together two symbolic regimes of self-improvement: the first is that of contemporary corporate culture, represented by that most ubiquitous object of postfordism, the communal hot desk; and the second is that of the personal fitness and well-being industry, here represented by a Bod Pod.

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 15 March 2019 // EXHIBITION: 16 March - 20 April 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT // BOD POD SESSIONS: 12pm - 2pm every Wednesday and Saturday during the exhibition period.

Unspoken Rule

Archie Barry, Louisa Bufardeci, Liam James, Annika Koops, Roee Rosen, Artur Zmijewski Curator: Stevie S. Han

Unspoken Rule is a group exhibition of Australian and international artists reflecting on identity as it intersects with a public. The exhibition re-examines the shifting sense of political and cultural agency that characterised identity politics in the 1990s, and which is finding new urgency with artists working today.

The exhibition is titled Unspoken Rule as a provocation in order to pose the questions: how do we see ourselves through the eyes of others? How do we navigate and reconcile conflicting political and cultural views in the public sphere?

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 18 January 2019 // EXHIBITION: 19 January - 24 February 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT
