    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.

    INDUSTRY ACCESS, CRITICAL ENGAGEMENT, NEW WORK

    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.

    The project began in 2010 as the outcome of a public private collaboration between Contemporary Art Tasmania and Detached Cultural Organisation and in 2017 it grew to include the Museum of Old and New Art.

    Shotgun is a unique and flexible artist-development model. Described as a ‘shot in the arm’ or ‘fast tracking’ for artists, Shotgun sets out to enable development - that may take a number of years for individuals to self-organise – to occur over a short and concentrated period. The program has taken many forms, including: exhibition; mentoring; meetings with visiting industry professionals (artists, curators, producers, writers and gallerists); workshops; discussion events; symposia; interstate visits and commissioned texts.

    Essay by Linda Crispin

     

    Vantablack was developed as a technology and introduced in 2014, but it became a known as a colour in 2016 and created controversy when UK artist Anish Kapoor was given sole rights for its use in art. Many in the art world took exception to the exclusivity of this agreement between Kapoor and Vantablack developer, Surrey Nanosystems, but none so much as Stuart Semple, a painter and printmaker, also from the UK.
    A result of this very public spat has been Semple’s Black 2.0, which uses a binding medium that is capable of holding more pigment than conventional binders, thus sucking in more light and resulting in the flattest, blackest paint available to artists. Semple rallied internet users in a social media campaign called #sharetheblack, and created his own pigments, which he then made available to anyone in the world - except Anish Kapoor.
    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.

  • Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process

    More information

    $45.00

    Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process brings together, for the first time, five decades of key Australian artist Derek Kreckler’s oeuvre. Its publication coincides with his eponymously titled survey exhibition, opening at Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in August 2015 and touring throughout Australia in the following years.

    Accident & Process, which is edited by curator Hannah Mathews, gives pause to the remarkable lens-based practice of a widely respected, though under-recognised artist. Supported by the University of Wollongong and the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, and published by Perimeter Editions, Melbourne, this richly illustrated monograph includes newly commissioned texts by writers Helen Ennis, Richard Grayson, Kyla McFarlane, Ian McLean, Hannah Mathews, Sarah Miller, Quentin Sprague and Frazer Ward, which attend to specific works describing key trajectories within Kreckler's career.

    THE ADDRESS: Brian Fuata, Justy Phillips, Mabel Juli, Sarah Jones and Pip O’Brien

    Contemporary Art Tasmania presents a new exhibition that explores modes and technologies of publishing.

    Are you there?

    The four works brought together for The Address elicit the modes and technologies of publishing, where publishing is the performance of making (something) public. Together, the works reflect the cyclical ‘call and response’ act of dialling into the future: of waiting, wanting, holding…

    Works by Brian Fuata, Justy Phillips, Mabel Juli, Sarah Jones and Pip O’Brien perform a poetic address to audiences past, present and future, through inextricable but differing modes of dedication, publication and circulation.

    Brian Fuata is a writer and performance maker who presents works in a range of spaces including theatre, gallery, domestic and made environments.

    Mabel Juli is a Darrajayin Woman and an artist who primarily paints the Ngarranggami (Dreaming) stories of her country.

    Justy Phillips is a graduate of the Royal College of Art, London and immigrated to Australia in 2003. Based in Tasmania she works with site-based installations and textual narratives.

    Sarah Jones and Pip O’Brien have been working together since 2011. Their collaborative practice explores publishing as an embodied event in the production of text-based installation, video works and artists’ publications. The Address is the first iteration of an ongoing project initiated by Jones and O’Brien.
