Shotgun 7: Increase Productivity

GRACE HERBERT

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.

Anthropocene Noir

Erin Linhart, Lola Page, Emily Parsons-Lord, Dexter Rosengrave, Elissa Wilson.

CURATED BY EVA NILSSEN FOR THE 2019 CAT CURATORIAL MENTORSHIP.

Finding a point of engagement with the Anthropocene, curator Eva Nilssen has invited five artists to respond to that theme in relation to noir fiction. As these artists bravely explore their own complicity in destruction it is hoped that the nature of our relationships with each other, as humans and non-humans sharing a potentially dark and perhaps thrilling new era, can be brought into focus.
