Oct 17 to Nov 21 (opening Sat Oct 17, 3-5pm) It takes more than 140 characters to write a novel – the exhibition explores the use of digital technologies and the photographic image in the creation of paintings, drawings and ceramic objects. It posits that artists who use technology as the basis of their art making are extending the experience of the ‘digital eye’ so as to reclaim an analogue familiarity. It will present works by artists who create directly from digitally-mediated and photographic images, arguing that the physical act of painting, drawing and object making, and the presence of the artist’s hand brings us closer to the physical world which we inhabit. Curated by Dr Vincent Alessi, Senior Lecturer, Creative Arts, La Trobe University.

This exhibition presents TRACES of new Australian and international arts projects that explore and reimagine systems of movement, place and event through challenging performance practices and ideas. The projects reveal tensions around the movement of people migrating lands or crossing a city; the movement of cultural ideas and social practices; the movement of matter through time and across space and through transformations of state; and the movement of non-human species and other than human forces. Gathered together, the projects across the performing, visual, new media and social and spatial arts reveal interplays of worlds in motion. The PASSAGES mobile performance program departs into the surrounding area of the Gallery over the opening weekend 8-11 Oct to challenge forms of performance and ways of encountering contemporary live art. Performing Mobilities is the Australian program of Fluid States – a globally distributed performance research project taking place in a sequence of 15 different locations over 2015.
