  • Issue 303 - Independence, space and art
    • Abstract: Wee, Jason; Samboh, Grace
      In January this year, Art Stage Singapore's Southeast Asia Forum gathered together a small group of independent curators from across the region in a panel discussion entitled 'The Free and the Brave: Artist-Initiated Spaces and Platforms'. Convened by the Asia Art Archive's Chuong-Dai Vo, the conversation ranged energetically across issues to do with sustainability, nationality and curatorial interdependence from the four-member panel comprising: Nathalie Johnston (founder of Myanm/art, Yangon); Norberto 'Peewee' Roldan (artist and Artistic Director of Green Papaya Art Projects, Manila); Grace Samboh (co-founder of Hyphen and Program Manager of the Yogyakarta Biennale Foundation's Equator Symposium); and Jason Wee (artist and founder of Grey Projects, Singapore). A few months later, Samboh and Wee picked up the conversation over email.

  • Issue 303 - Utopianism and us: 'Call of the Avant-Garde' at Heide
    • Abstract: Carroll, Alison
      'Call of the Avant-Garde: Constructivism and Australia Art' was presented in three parts. The first (the original early twentiethcentury Russian material) and third (the Australian work post- 1980) were interwoven through the main building at Heide. The second section (of mid-century Australian examples) was sited in the smaller 'Heide II', where the domestic scale fitted it well.

  • Issue 303 - Curating community: 'Good neighbours' at artbank
    • Abstract: Reidy, Elizabeth
      'Good Neighbours' was the resulting exhibition of a two-year project partnership between Artbank, the New South Wales Department of Family and Community Services and Create NSW. The purpose of the project was to enrich the scope of the Artbank collection with the works of artists who live with disabilities. Curators Daniel Mudie Cunningham and Miriam Kelly established a tender and inclusive framework, exalting the value of art as a conduit for people to appreciate and relate to each other through shared passion. This level-handed curatorial approach enhanced an overall feeling of inclusiveness that resulted in a warm and joyful exhibition.

  • Issue 303 - Tom Nicholson's historical reckoning
    • Abstract: Knezic, Sophie
      Distillations of the life stories of Hazara refugees from Afghanistan and a memoir by one of Indonesia's most important twentieth-century sculptors formed the overlapping frames for Tom Nicholson's recent exhibition 'I was born in Indonesia' at Melbourne's Ian Potter Museum of Art. The exhibition was installed in three parts: a series of 12 video interviews with Hazaras stationed near Jakarta; a multitude of handcrafted figurines designed for diorama scenes and displayed on a roomsized elevated platform; and a video produced collaboratively with curator Grace Samboh, interviewing the acclaimed Indonesian artist Edhi Sunarso in the year before his death in 2016. Examining contemporary Indonesia through an interweaving of official and unofficial chronicles, the exhibition conveyed the fragility of sanctioned historical narratives and testified to the ways in which individual experiences can trouble historical fixity.

  • Issue 303 - Ian strange: 'Island'
    • Abstract:
      'Island' is a body of work I started in the United States in 2015 and presented in my recent solo exhibition at the Fremantle Arts Centre. The show was anchored by three new large photographic works documenting interventions directly undertaken on foreclosed homes through Ohio's 'Rust Belt' region, as well as research and work created in Detroit and New York between 2015 and 2017. The exhibition presented artefacts retrieved from inside the houses: found photographs, sound works, the reconstructed section of a now demolished home, as well as drawings created in development of the work.

  • Issue 303 - 'Absolute zest': Eight years of the Schenberg fellowship
    • Abstract: Snell, Ted
      How do you contribute to building a vibrant arts community' When respected Western Australian dermatologist and philanthropist Dr Harold Schenberg died in June 2000, he left a bequest to the University of Western Australia to create a prize in music and the visual arts to enable young Australian artists to develop their professional careers. Since 2010, his generosity has made a significant difference to the lives of eight emerging visual artists and six young musicians, all of whom have been awarded the prestigious Dr Harold Schenberg Fellowship.

  • Issue 303 - 'Yolngu and Martu coming together': Curtis Taylor and 'In
           Cahoots'
    • Abstract: Coleman, Sheridan
      Yirrkala, on the eastern tip of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory and WA's Western Desert region are separated by 3000 kilometres (or 54 hours) of rural highway and gravel road. At the Western Desert end is the red and theatrically sparse Country of Martu artist Curtis Taylor. Taylor's work imagines the contemporary implications of time-honoured Martu lore. In his film Mamu (2010), ghosts stalk a youth who shared photos of sacred paintings online. Days away in the coastal community of Yirrkala, Yolngu filmmaker Ishmael Marika also puts his community's fireside yarns on video. His short drama Galka (2014) depicts a clay-painted spirit who preys on straying children.

    • Abstract: Quin, Sally
      The peak professional body for the region's art historians, the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand (AAANZ) not only publishes the refereed journal the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art, and annually awards book and journal prizes, but provides an important forum for the discussion of current issues relating to art history and curating, and advocates on behalf of the visual arts sector to maintain and encourage its growth in the region.

  • Issue 303 - Curating histories: 'Red Green Blue' at Griffith
    • Abstract: Buttrose, Ellie
      How does video fit into the history of Australian art' It features prominently in contemporary surveys, and yet very little is seen - if at all - in the Australian art collection displays in our state and national galleries. This is one of the reasons it was a refreshing to take a deep dive into the medium in Matthew Perkins's three-part exhibition 'Red Green Blue: A History of Australian Video Art' at Griffith University Art Gallery in Brisbane.

  • Issue 302 - Pepai Jangala Carroll's journey home
    • Abstract: Scholes, Luke
      During a cool week in April 2017, the illuminating painter and maverick ceramist Pepai Jangala Carroll journeyed into Country not visited since childhood in the 1950s. With a troop carrier of followers who included Derek Jungarrayi Thompson, staff from Ernabella Arts and myself, Pepai took us into the storied landscapes of the deserts outside of Alice Springs. Pepai was determined to return to his father's Country near the Walungurru (Kintore) community 500 kilometres west of Alice Springs. We were destined for two sites marked on Pepai's map as personally significant: the soakage water of Ininti and the vast salt lake of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay).

  • Issue 302 - Clay bosses: Indigenous potters at the JamFactory
    • Abstract: Kothe, Hannah
      For two weeks this month, Nephi Denham, Lawrence Inkamala, Jimmy K. Thaiday and Derek Jungarrayi Thompson are working alongside one another as part of a ceramics residency at JamFactory to coincide with the TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. The four men are all emerging ceramic artists exploring, as JamFactory's Senior Curator Margaret Hancock Davis has described, the 'expressive and celebratory' qualities of the medium.2 The men each work within the art centres in their communities - Nephi Denham at Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre, Lawrence Inkamala at Hermannsburg Potters, Jimmy K. Thaiday at Erub Arts, and Derek Jungarrayi Thompson at Ernabella Arts.

      A joint venture between Adelaide Central School of Art and Sydney's National Art School, 'The Drawing Exchange' saw more than 20 artists from around Australia converge on the campuses of both schools during the second week of August this year. We came together to create wall drawings in exhibition spaces and public areas, in a festival-like event that was open for students and the general public to observe. The premise was simple but ambitious: to air a gamut of definitions of drawing at a public scale, bringing artists and audience into dialogue with the challenge of ephemeral site-specific drawing.

  • Issue 302 - The intimacy of shared histories: A South Australian
           roundtable
    • Abstract: Nowell, Liz
      They say that change is as good as a holiday and, for South Australia, seismic shifts in the arts landscape over the past 18 months have led to a refreshed sector, brimming with a renewed sense of optimism and opportunity. Over the past 12 months alone, Adelaide has seen: the merger of two contemporary art organisations, the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia and the Australian Experimental Art Foundation, into a single new entity, ACE Open (for which I am the Chief Executive Officer); the formation of the new Adelaide artist-run initiative Sister; the relocation of Fontanelle to Port Adelaide; Emma Fey appointed as the new Executive Director of Guildhouse; and a AU$17.54 million investment from BHP Billiton into this year's TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. More broadly, the state has and continues to undergo huge change; as the manufacturing industry begins to collapse, the State Government turns its attention to major infrastructure projects and renewable energy. But what does this mean for the artists living and working here' I sat down with three - Elyas Alavi, Ali Gumillya Baker and Sera Waters - to talk about the challenges, opportunities and future of the arts in South Australia.

On Valamanesh's idiosyncratic earth, the ocean is vast, made up of tessellated tiles of subtly variegated blue. The continents have coalesced into a tightly organised archipelago, a chain of islands that resemble lines of Persian calligraphy:

    • Abstract: Durrant, Jacqui
      In the early 1980s, Anne Zahalka broke onto the art scene with a series of subversive photomontages, 'The Landscape Re-presented' (1983-85). At a time when postmodernism was new to Australian art, Zahalka was busy reconstructing culturally iconic paintings (predominantly by the Australian impressionists and their ilk) to challenge dominant discourses surrounding Australian identity - particularly that part of Australianness bound up with the nature of our belonging to the landscape. Needless to say, reworking famous images has since become a mainstay of Zahalka's now substantial artistic practice - a modus operandi which has lost none of its edge over time.

      Anglo-Irish writer and philosopher Iris Murdoch remarked: 'Rilke said of C zanne that he did not paint "I like it", he painted "There it is".' The same could be said of Greg Semu's current exhibition at Cairns Art Gallery. Walking into this installation, set against a black and red backdrop, has the visual effect of blunt force trauma. 'Blood Red' is the culmination of a yearlong project undertaken by Sydney-based Semu working collaboratively with the Indigenous community of Coen in Far North Queensland. The resulting exhibition presents a multilayered account of the Coen community and the colonial frontier.

    • Abstract: Walcott, Rhianna
      It is May 2017, and a group of 30 or so people are milling around inside Tom Polo's studio at Artspace in Sydney. Champagne glasses in hand, they cautiously approach the paintings scattered around the space. Leaning in stacks or pinned to the wall, these works, at various stages of completion, are the initial creative stirrings from which Polo will develop his work for the 2017 edition of 'Primavera', recently unveiled at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA). Navigating the crowd through these works, and in conversation with the artist, is 'Primavera 2017' Curator Sophia Kouyoumdjian. What follows is a casual, candid dialogue regularly interrupted by curious questions from this cosmopolitan and multifaceted group of young professionals and creatives - all brought together by the MCA's Young Ambassador program.

      I had been walking for a few hours by the time I reached my second pit stop. The cavernous entrance of the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) often blinds the visitor as one's retina adjusts to the sudden shift in light. This time I ducked slightly, under what I later realised was part of Alex Gawronski's series 'Ghosts' (2017). Mirroring the rectilinear beams of the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops (now home to Carriageworks), the series comprises three architectural features extracted as readymades from each host institution and presented for each other.

    • Abstract: Nicholls, Delia
      One morning in October 2016, a group of poets, painters, curators, writers, scientists and conservationists stood on the slopes of Cherry Tree Hill on Tasmania's east coast looking out across an organised landscape to the jagged granite profile of the Freycinet Peninsula. Most saw a bucolic vision of regimented vine-covered trellises, backdropped by sky-blue lagoons and beyond them the cerulean expanse of Great Oyster Bay. But one person in the group saw another scene: a painting by John Glover done just nearby around 1838. Glover named it Moulting Lagoon and Great Oyster Bay, from Pine Hill. It's another bucolic view of a sunlit sky and lush coastal landscape complete with a single shepherd and his dog overseeing a flock.

But follow the curving ramp up past the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory's (MAGNT) prized exhibit Sweetheart, the five-metre stuffed saltwater crocodile, to the upper galleries that host the 2017 NATSIAAs, and a change is discernible in the air.

      Knowing a little about the work of Sydney artist Hilarie Mais, most visitors to her current survey exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) will expect a display of neominimal art, predominantly of the artist's formal and organised signature grids and spirals. But expecting one thing and getting something else is at the heart of this exhibition. Grids are on display, but nothing akin to a mass-produced machine artefact. Instead, Mais offers work overlaid with a geometry of emotion closer to American abstract painter Mark Rothko in sentiment than anything that might be designed by renowned minimal artist Sol LeWitt.

      With Australia being home to at least seven different types of bowerbirds, the concept of a bower provides a potent symbolic focus for our exhibition 'From the Bower: Patterns of Collecting'. A bower may be described as an enclosed space, a sanctuary in the natural world where objects are gathered. It has a connection to the garden - to plants, birds and insects - and, in medieval times, the bower referred to a woman's private space.

  • Issue 296 - Grand designs: Towards a new SAM
    • Abstract: Huppatz, DJ
      In an era of arts funding cuts, the prospect of a new purpose-built gallery in regional Australia is cause for celebration. In January 2017, Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) unveiled five concept designs for their new museum, with the winning design to be announced in April. Currently located in a remodelled council building, SAM has a permanent collection with strengths in ceramics, Indigenous art, work by Australian female modernists, as well as a provocative program of contemporary exhibitions. The new building - housing SAM, the Shepparton Visitor Centre and Kaiela Arts (the local Indigenous art gallery and studio, currently located in a storefront) - has the potential to be more than just a new exhibition space. Including a children's gallery and/ or educational space, artist-in-residence studio and the obligatory cafe, shop and bar, the new SAM could become a significant generator of civic identity.

One important route to this broad aim is partnering with European museums, bringing Southeast Asian and European art histories in dialogue.

  • Issue 296 - Towards a global discourse: 'Making Modernism'
    • Abstract: Quin, Sally
      The exhibition 'O'Keeffe, Preston, Cossington Smith: Making Modernism' presents modernism as a global phenomenon, whose vectors moved well beyond the cultural centres of Europe. It investigates the way in which American artist Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), and Australians Margaret Preston (1875-1963) and Grace Cossington Smith (1892-1984), adapted certain formal and philosophical principles of modernism to the depiction of their own regional settings - be it New Mexico, a farm at Berowra, or the Sydney suburb of Turramurra. The artists are bound by their fascination with the natural world and desire to communicate its mystery and beauty. Beyond this, there are few artistic parallels to be drawn from this tripartite arrangement, a factor which perhaps prompted the use of a separate space for each artist in the recent exhibition display at Heide.

    • Abstract: Frost, Andrew
      One of the curious aspects of viewing art is the way the eye focuses on an object. When we look at an artwork - be it a sculpture, painting or photograph - the space between our eyes and the object itself seems to disappear. Our selective focus on a detail eliminates perception of all other aspects of a room. Of course, art galleries are spaces designed for viewing, and when lighting is used to enhance certain objects and fields of vision, this effect of disappearance is increased.

      In the mid-1960s, London was a city on the cusp of major radical change. The creative burst from across the Atlantic was crashing into a still postwar England. The British art world was small but burgeoning. Art schools, galleries and dealers were expanding rapidly, new artforms were explored, and disused industrial buildings requisitioned for artists' studios. The Studio magazine, the world's oldest English-centric art magazine was a rather dusty shadow of its former self. Owned by a long-established family printing firm, Cory, Adams and Mackay, The Studio had become little more than a flagship for their printing processes. The Studio's owners saw a chance to transform the distinguished elderly magazine, and they seized it wholeheartedly.

    • Abstract: Roberts, Claire
      In 1939, at the age of 20, Peter Townsend made a decision that would change the course of his life. He volunteered for the Friends' Ambulance Unit rather than return to Oxford where he had been studying history, a decision that was likely influenced by his Quaker father, a socialist and pacifist who was closely following the Sino-Japanese War. Two years later Townsend volunteered to deliver medical aid in China, and after six months of language study travelled to Singapore and then overland to Rangoon and on to China. Hsiao Chien (1910-1999), the noted writer and newspaper correspondent, was one of his teachers and became a lifelong friend. The Sino-Japanese War had been raging for six years and the Pacific War had just begun.

      Peter Townsend and I met in 1978. Lawrence Weiner had told me to contact his friend Jack Wendler, publisher of a magazine called Art Monthly, and to call at the office in Museum Street. Peter was there and we repaired at once to the Museum Tavern, just across from their office, with curator Barry Barker and a couple of others. Art Monthly had not been going for very long at that time and I became a subscriber, seeing Peter whenever I was in London. He would always bring along a couple of his friends for me to meet which meant, of course, four bottles of the house red, or as many as there were people present; autres temps, autres moeurs. Over the years, I heard about his time in China during the war, and Studio International of which he had been editor. He was in France when the war got underway and, on reaching the ferry, found he had no money. He spotted a master from his old school (he had left the year before), who was able to put him right for the crossing back to England.

By the time I met him, in the late 1970s or very early 1980s, the better part of his roistering days, which had been legendary, were over. Yet his huge curiosity for art (and life) still sustained his passion for publishing, and his extraordinary career as an open-minded, large-hearted art magazine editor in the United Kingdom took a new turn when he moved to this country to establish Art Monthly Australia in 1987.

We have TVs, a radiogram, some Copenhagenware crystal vases, beige Berber carpets, and central heating instead. We have been taught that being Maori does not necessarily depend on physical things or the traditional symbols to express itself. Being Maori draws upon all that's around you so that we might understand its underlying spirit.

  • Issue 299 - Studio tropes: Exploring the fluid contexts for creativity
    • Abstract: Judd, Craig
      As a title, 'Our Studio Selves' has all the promise of a nine-episode Netflix/HBO hit dramedy. The narrative arc of this yet-to-bemade show might involve a cast of passionate characters with anti-establishment lifestyle choices drawn together by straightened economic circumstances to live and work together in rough digs. All with unique backstories, they are what are now known as 'creatives' - web designers (do they still exist?), fashionistas, artists of various sorts, writers, opera singers and so on. Their social, psychosexual and intellectual interactions, their often conflicted creativity, are made all the more poignant by being played out among post-industrial locations. The denouement sees canny real-estate developers and local government officials with the glint of gentrification in their eyes collude in an orgy of urban renewal so that the collapse of the group's cohesion is inevitable. Sound familiar? These are some of the contexts to the work of eight Australian and international artists brought together in the recent actual exhibition 'Our Studio Selves' by independent curator Jasmin Stephens.

      A few years ago I got together with a group of Australian and German curators to talk about the possibility of mounting an exhibition of the art of six German artists who had come to the 'South Seas' and made some exceptional imagery. Three of the artists - Ludwig Becker, William Blandowski and Eugene von Guerard - travelled to Australia in the 1850s, and the other three - Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein and Walter Spies - sailed in the first three decades of the twentieth century to, respectively, German New Guinea, Palau (the tiny island country halfway between New Guinea and the Philippines) and Bali.

  • Issue 299 - The pacific room
    • Abstract: Fitzgerald, Michael
      The portrait in question, the reason for his travels, is sixty-one centimetres by thirty-five, and rendered in oil on canvas. Despite the Scottish writer's icy stare the palette is high-toned, almost feverish. Nerli: the artist's signature with its calligraphic flourish is rendered in Chinese red...

           artists in focus
    • Abstract: Tamaira, Marata Ketekiri
      With its natural endowment of white-sand beaches, verdant tropical mountain ranges, and salubrious climate, Hawai'i is more commonly associated with being a tourist hub rather than an art mecca. But that perception is in the process of changing, no doubt helped along with the advent of the Honolulu Biennial, which recently concluded its inaugural edition in May 2017.

  • Issue 299 - Out of the enclosure: Elisabeth cummings's 'interior
           landscapes'
    • Abstract: Jean, Anne-Marie
      The layered and scarred surfaces of Elisabeth Cummings's paintings create a sense of space that pulses with time as well as movement. Viewer perceptions react to the unpredictably rough and gouged skins of her paintings in direct correlation with the remembered experience of the ungainly textures of the Australian bush. Her vibrant works reveal the exquisite beauty of the bush's unkempt structures and rugged exterior, emerging surely from the intimacy of an unconditional love affair with the environments she paints in.

    • Abstract: Evans, Bob
      Like Sydney's annual 'Sculpture by the Sea', the biennial open-air sculpture exhibition 'headland Sculpture on the Gulf ' (SOTG) makes the most of maritime spectacle. The setting is a winding track on Waiheke Island - a 40-minute ferry ride from Auckland - with its headland overlooking picturesque Matiatia Bay and the Hauraki Gulf.

  • Issue 299 - Destabilising states: Ann Shelton's 'dark matter'
    • Abstract: French, Blair
      Ann Shelton has been at the forefront of photographic art practice in New Zealand for over two decades. Attending art school after an early career as a press photographer, her high-key colour and performative 'in the moment' picturing of a young queer scene around the Auckland art world of the mid-1990s - the 'Redeye' series (1995-97) - first brought her to prominence. This 'insider' photography - both asserting and celebrating new identity politics and exploring photographic formalities associated with the medium's deployment in youth media formats - has remained an important touchstone for her work. While this is less overtly apparent in subject matter, it has remained apparent within the sense of psychological inhabitation emanating from all her imagery - whether of the library of an idiosyncratic collector ('a library to scale', 2006), the abandoned buildings of a psychiatric hospital ('once more from the street', 2004), the interiors of a former drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre ('room room', 2008), or in scenes and traces of historical or fictional violence and trauma (such as in 'Public Places', 2001-03, or 'the city of gold and lead', 2013).

    • Abstract: Simpson, Peter
      This exhibition seems so natural and inevitable that you wonder why it hasn't been done before. Colin McCahon, New Zealand's most significant twentieth-century artist, died back in 1987, yet his works on Maori subjects and themes - central to his practice in the 1960s and 1970s - have never before been brought together. It is a coherent and absorbing exhibition, despite one telling omission.

  • Issue 299 - Contemporary atauro carving from Timor-Leste
    • Abstract: Bennett, James
      The extraordinary exhibition 'The Sculptures of Atauro Island', recently opened at the Charles Darwin University Art Gallery in Darwin, is an eloquent testimony to the powerful aesthetic traditions that exist in Timor-Leste and which are so little understood or recognised by many Australians. Of course, the statement 'many Australians' needs to be qualified. Travel to Darwin from the southern urban centres of this country and immediately you enter an environment, unlike elsewhere, where awareness of our proximity to Southeast Asia is commonplace among the city's long-term residents. Dili, the capital of Timor-Leste, is less than an hour's flight from Darwin which is a city joined by many historical connections, foremost cultural, to one of the world's newest nations.

  • Issue 298 - 'I can see a shadow thinking': Tracey Moffatt in conversation
    • Abstract: King, Natalie
      Since graduating from the Queensland College of Art in 1982, Tracey Moffatt has become one of Australia's most visible contemporary artists. Her moving archive of images gleaned from photographic series such as 'Scarred for Life' (1994 and 2000) and 'Night Spirits' (2013) - along with her film montages created with Gary Hillberg such as Lip (1999) and Other (2009) - are loaded with emotive themes touching on belonging, bedevilment and black-and-white race relations in Australia, about which the artist has rarely spoken. On the eve of her presentation of two newly commissioned photographic series and two new video works for the 57th Venice Biennale as Australia's first solo Indigenous artist, Moffatt speaks about the artistic inspiration for her elaborately staged fictions.

  • Issue 298 - Notes on perception: Gordon Bennett and Daniel Boyd
    • Abstract: Walsh, Tim
      Gordon Bennett (1955-2014) was a groundbreaking figure in contemporary Australian art. Never complacent, Bennett's career was a series of daring stylistic and conceptual breaks with convention. His courage as an artist remains under-acknowledged to this day. Australia's contemporary art scene is indebted to his influence and it would be difficult to conceive of many familiar names and movements without him. One of those artists is the Cairns-born, Sydney-based painter Daniel Boyd. Boyd is a post-Bennett artist in a globalised art context and, like many of his peers, has inherited an art world more self-aware because of Bennett's legacy.

  • Issue 298 - The chase: Finding the hidden figures of history
    • Abstract: Gough, Julie
      During the onset of British colonisation of Van Diemen's Land, between the years of 1803 and 1830, almost no colonial artists depicted Tasmanian Aboriginal people.1 From the late 1820s the island was perceived in Britain as a colony at war with 'its Natives', culminating in the 'Black Line', when, over a period of six weeks from October 1830, some 3500 armed 'settlers' and military, supported by 30,000 pounds of Government money, attempted to force Aboriginal people remaining at large in the 'settled districts' onto the Tasman Peninsula, before their exile to Flinders Island. After the Aboriginal population was decimated, from perhaps 8000 to about 200 people, they began to appear in a range of artforms produced by a small group of artists.

This was my third visit to the island of O'ahu, but the first time in the embrace of the mountains and valleys. With Sama Alshaibi and Sean Connelly, both Honolulu Biennial artists, I swam in the fresh waters, my toes touching the smooth river stones and smelling the fresh light raindrops bring sustenance to the forest and kalo plots nearby.

  • Issue 298 - An-archival: Brook Andrew's 'The right to offend is sacred'
    • Abstract: Knezic, Sophie
      Excavation is a word that pithily encapsulates Brook Andrew's practice. Created through painstaking processes of archival research, Andrew's sculptural installations, photographs, collages and coloured screenprints bear the imprint of a close looking at artefacts from the past; a mining of history. 'The Right to Offend is Sacred' is a survey show that presents a select grouping of Andrew's works ranging from 1992 to 2017. Colonial photographs, human bones, old linen-bound volumes encased in glass vitrines and ethnographic film footage materialise in atmospheric juxtaposition. The dimmed gallery lighting, shot through with luminous colour emanating from the neon components of Andrew's installations, transforms the exhibition space into an environment of muted encounters with the past. Photographed faces loom from shadowy grounds with countenances that range from wariness to dispassion and expressions much more inscrutable.

    • Abstract: Kaika-Burton, Nyurpaya
      In every community across the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands today you will see houses with kulata (spears) out the front in different stages of completion, and you'll see Anangu men, young and old, straightening spears around camp fires. Frank Young, a leader of the Amata community, has described the spread of the spear-making project established by the senior men as 'wildfire'. My husband Willy Kaika, who has led the 'Kulata Tjuta Project' since its inception at Tjala Arts in 2010, represents the deep knowledge gained over a lifetime and held by senior men about the traditional art of spear making.

    • Abstract: Norris, Yolande
      The School of Art (SoA) sits atop the crest of Childers Street, resplendent in its art deco symmetry, clock tower against the sky. Completed in 1939, the building is one of the relatively few constants of Canberra architecture, and once stood lonesome among the sheep paddocks in its former role as Canberra High School. Now the building is at the heart of the Australian National University (ANU) precinct: the School of Music, established in 1965 with its own brutalist beauty, sits at its side. Entering the SoA is to be met first by the smell of oils and tinctures - exotic, but familiar to the initiated. There's a reverence in the air; decades of artistic devotion permeates.

      'What's happening to Australia's art schools?' NAVA Executive Director Tamara Winikoff wrote in February 2016. 'There was a time when art schools were regarded as a thrilling hotbed of experimentation, bohemianism and great new anarchic ideas. But the gradual funding squeeze and the Dawkins reforms around the early 1990s saw them moved under the umbrella of the universities and required to be more business-like and set "performance targets". What has been the consequence?'

    • Abstract: Soboslay, Zsuzsi
      Kirstie Rea has long been a fierce interrogator of her medium and her practice, but when she and I first met during her residency at the Canberra region's Namadgi National Park in 2009, she was preparing an exhibition for which she fabricated nothing in glass. Sitting on the porch of the residency cottage, watching the roll of the land and in turn being watched by kangaroos, she became obsessed with:

      The way the eye moves through space ... The outline; the way of looking out into that space; the delineation of the edge of the hut and its certainty, against opening to that place.

      At the time, it may have seemed an extraordinary comparison. The paintings were by a young artist who, in 1999, was just five years out of graduate school at the University of California, Los Angeles. Village Voice critic Jerry Saltz was commenting on Toba Khedoori's second solo exhibition at David Zwirner's gallery in New York. But it wasn't just Saltz taking note of Khedoori's prodigious talent. A mere three years later, in 2002, she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship, becoming the only Australian artist to date to receive this prestigious five-year endowment, known colloquially as the 'Genius Grant'.

    • Abstract: Rose, Heather
      Levin returned to the side of the square where he could see both people in profile once more. He sat down on the floor. A young man now sat opposite the woman. He was strikingly handsome with luminous eyes, a wide mouth and shoulder-length curls, the face of an angel sent to visit dying children. Levin was interested to see if the woman would respond to this aesthetic but she didn't, as far as he could see. She maintained the exact same gaze she'd been giving everyone else. She gazed gently and intently. Her body didn't move. She sat very straight with her hands in her lap. From time to time her eyelids blinked but nothing else.

    • Abstract: Robinson, Macushla
      In 1973, two philosophy students proposed a course at the University of Sydney called 'Philosophical Aspects of Feminist Thought'. The department rejected their proposal, prompting teachers and students alike to strike. The protesting philosophers formed an alliance with the New South Wales Builders Labourers Federation (BLF) - whose members, working on campus buildings at the time, went on strike in solidarity. Eventually, the philosophy department was split in two to accommodate the demands of feminist thought, and General Philosophy emerged as a department in its own right.
