Soft soil between our toes and jagged rocks underfoot. Are they fossil fuel deposits ripe for exploitation or sacred Dreaming sites?
The work of Debra Porch (1954–2017) explores the potency of memory and its ability to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Using textiles, thread, hair and electroplated objects, Porch created visual mechanisms that reorientate our sense of the familiar and forge connections between the present and past.
Rachel O’Reilly is an artist-poet, critic, independent curator and researcher whose work explores relationships between art and situated cultural practice, media philosophy and feminist political economy.
Soft Monument is an exhibition by Cambodian-Australian artist Linda Sok which looks to subvert the ways historically felt traumas have been addressed throughout history. The work speaks to the Khmer Rouge Regime without depictions of violence and promotes a softer way of communicating the occurrence of the violent acts perpetrated during this time and its ongoing effects.
Substrate is a cross-institutional exhibition exchange between UNSW Art & Design and the University of Newcastle that brings together a selection of works by students who work with photography in the undergraduate degree program. The works in the exhibition present a diversity of compelling ideas in photography and photo-based art in the form of still and moving images, objects and installations.
Join 2019 John Fries Award finalists Dean Cross, David Greenhalgh, Nadia Hernández, Elena Papanikolakis and Justine Youssef on the closing weekend of the exhibition for a series of talks on their work in ‘There is Fiction in the Spaces Between’, moderated by John Fries Award Curator Miriam Kelly.

Modern Baseball is a series of paintings that references Ellsworth Kelly's 'Red, Yellow, Blue III' (1966) and the artist's father Raymond Pauszek II's commercial sign paintings for the Dunkirk, New York, Little League Baseball Field. The new work by Tim Pauszek zooms in to his father's since destroyed signs to become closer to Kelly's colour field work (or do they zoom out of Kelly's work to become closer to Ray II's signs? I can never remember).
