The Triumph of Modernism in the Art of Australia

28 Mar 2015 - 24 May 2015

Spans 60 years of Australian Art with over 50 iconic works by 26 artists who have shaped the development of modern art in Australia.

The Triumph of Modernism tells the story of a new identity in Australian art commencing post World War II with artists such as Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Russell Drysdale, John Brack, John Perceval and Charles Blackman. Later years see the continuing development of modern art in the works of Fred Williams and John Olsen, and in more recent times in contemporary art by artists Imants Tillers, Howard Arkley and Aida Tomescu. The Triumph of Modernism is a rich and representative display of the story of modern Australia, with a particular and deliberate emphasis on Australian identity, although it is just a glimpse into the remarkable collections.

Curated for Hazelhurst by its patron, Edmund Capon, the exhibition provides an opportunity to see some works that are rarely made available for public viewing. “This is the first time Sydney audiences will be able to see the collection in such depth, revealing the strength and diversity it holds” said Belinda Hanrahan, Hazelhurst's Director. Edmund Capon says “My objective here has been to illustrate two themes; firstly the triumph of modernism in Australian art and, secondly, the particular qualities and strengths of the TarraWarra and Besen collections.”

Artists featured include Howard Arkley, George Baldessin , Charles Blackman, Arthur Boyd, John Brack, William Delafield Cook, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Ian Fairweather, Joy Hester, Dale Hickey, Roger Kemp, Joanna Lamb, Godfrey Miller, Sidney Nolan, John Olsen, John Perceval, Jeffrey Smart, Tim Storrier, Edwin Tanner, Imants Tillers, Aida Tomescu, Tony Tuckson, Brett Whiteley, Fred Williams and William Wright.

This exhibition is a partnership project between TarraWarra Museum of Art and Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre. The Triumph of Modernism will also be shown at TarraWarra Museum of Art from 21 June – 16 August 2015.

Channels video art festival - calls for submissions

Channels will be hosting a series of exhibitions, screenings, forums and events in September 2015. Submissions are now open to all Australian and international artists who work with video. Selected works will be curated into our festival screening program in Melbourne, Australia and our international satellite events.

Our first artist-led festival in 2013 was a great success showcasing over 120 artists from Australia and around the world. We received over 900 videos from all over the world and after weeks of watching them all and discussing with our selection panel, we created a series of curated screening events across Melbourne including the most popular Video Visions, a 2-hour long screening event at the cinema of Australian Centre for Moving Image (ACMI), and Rooftop Transmissions for NGV Melbourne Now.

Common Eclectic - music in Glebe Town Hall

Places + spaces invites you to the launch of their series Common Eclectic, music in Glebe Town Hall.

A musical showcase that flirts with intimate performances of comedy, music and magic, Indie artists, chamber opera, gypsy jazz or a twist on a string ensemble. A musical taster to whet the senses.

The series kicks off with Sydney’s favourite folk club High Tea launching their 2015 season with The Maple Trail and PHIA in a double bill on Saturday 7 February. This special show features the sublime songcraft of Aidan Roberts and the kalimba-toting Phia.

The Maple Trail is the project of multi-instrumentalist Aidan Roberts (Belles Will Ring, Lanie Lane, Tubular Bells For Two). Roberts has gathered a new collection of songs to follow 2012's acclaimed album 'Cable Mount Warning'. His music travels from his roots in traditional English and Scottish folk, skewed Americana and distinct vocal and guitar storyscapes. These are the latest tales of winter and summer, light and dark, love and loss, tigers and Tasmania.

Joining The Maple Trail is Berlin-based PHIA - hailed by the European press as “one of Australia’s most underrated musical exports”. She creates “hypnotic, joyful and definitely danceable” music using nothing but an African Kalimba, her voice and a loop pedal, plus her producer/guitarist Josh.

The performance series runs from February to November — what you’ll see and hear is an eclectic selection of music and musicians. The program is dynamic, much like the artists they are working with. It’s an eclectic bunch, flowing from jazz grooves, epic folk music, a touch of classical to sound art and soundscapes in the beautifully restored Glebe Town Hall

Artists include the Crooked Fiddle Band, Spyglass Gypsies, Stephen Adam, Clocks & Clouds, David Bridie, Fred Smith, Mic Conway & Robbie Lang, Hinterlandt Ensemble, Daniel Weltlinger, Simon Lobelson and more.

High Tea with Aidan Roberts and PHIA (double bill)
Saturday 7 February from 7 pm, performance commences at 8pm

Glebe Town Hall, 160 St Johns Road, Glebe

All tickets $15 - book now - Moshtix

Postfolkrocktronica Picnic, with FBi's Utility Fog

thanks to the organizers and artists who played. I arrived a bit late so missed the first couple of performances. loved the venue - so many textures, such a great warehouse & view from the island. and the sound was great. nice to see Raven & Ollie Bown - I'd only heard some of Icarus' cds and music on Utility Fog so it was great to see how he makes his music. interesting to hear that he programs code for it too. and wow, Pimmon! that sounded different to other times I've seen him play. loved it. so atmospheric, and even a bit industrial in there as well. and I do believe he was even dancing a bit! :)

Stelarc: The Cadaver, the Comatose & the Chimera - seminar (melbourne)

We are living in an age of excess and indifference, of prosthetic augmentation and extended operational systems. The dead, the near dead, the undead and the yet to be born are existing simultaneously. This is the age of the cadaver, the comatose and the chimera. The cadaver can now be preserved indefinitely with plastination. The comatose body can be sustained on a life-support system. Cryogenically suspended bodies await possible reanimation. Chimera is the body that performs with mixed realities. A biological body, augmented with technology and telematically performing with virtual systems. The chimera is an alternate embodiment.
