Goings - on


Candice Cranmer, Adam Knight, Sanja Pahoki, Ben Raynor.
Curated by A. A. Crosse

What is going on? Goings-on take place in backyards, small rooms with closed doors, cul de sacs, away from open stares. Activities that are a bit weird, a bit sus, not ominous though. What is Goings-on? It consists of four artists, engaged in a range of provisional activities, locally and abroad. It’s an exhibition set in Stephen’s shed.

Goings-on is the first event under the banner of The Task, a series of events taking place in unexpected places.

Exhibition runs 2-3 of March, 10-6
Opening event Saturday 2nd of March 3-5pm.
12 Etnam street, Preston 3072.

The Rest is Silence

"The Rest Is Silence"
Opening: 8th of November 2011
Until 11th of December
Above Image: Exhibition Invitation

"The rest is silence" exhibition has been conceived to create a mass object of skulls as an experiential installation where the gallery space becomes a catacomb or a funerial skull cave if you will. The exhibitions title "The rest is silence”, are the dramatic last words uttered by Hamlet in the final act of Shakespeare’s celebrated play, and perchance apropos for DEATH BE KIND’s concluding show to an eighteen month program of curated exhibitions about death by Claire Lambe and Elvis Richardson.

Death Be Kind:
Upstairs @
134 Lygon Street
Brunswick VIC 3056
Saturday + Sunday 2-6pm

Framed at Level ARI, Brisbane, curated by Simone Hine.

Level ARI, Brisbane
Curated by SIMONE HINE

Framed presents a series of performative video works in which three female artists test their body through a simple action. These works draw upon the history of feminist performance art in order to present what is essentially a performance recorded on video. The change of medium replicates a shift in the subject of these performances. Where seminal performance works from the 1960s and 1970s focused on immediacy, Rebecca Adams, Candice Cranmer and Kellie Wells use video to distance the viewer from the artist and the action.

This project is an exchange between Level and Screen Space and has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Fail Harder

delves into the notion that experimentation and failure are key elements to a well rounded studio practice. Often the biggest failures lead to the best unanticipated outcomes. Featuring our nine resident studio artists, the risk of failure is confronted head-on as they spend three days and nights together in the gallery participating in an intensive making frenzy. The community of a shared studio is amplified while innovation and insight into process are highlighted in this year’s annual KINGS ARI studio exhibition.
Artists: Candice Cranmer, Bianca Durrant, Ben Millar, Andy Wear, C J Conway, Lucy Farmer, Fiona Williams, Rebecca Adams, Emma Van Leest
