Dec 1 to Jan 21, 2024 If the earth was not curvature, our eastern tunes would have collided with yours by Siying Zhou uses video, sound, text and objects to explore the representation of Chinese culture in Australia and asks how the Chinese are defined in the context of Australian history. By presenting the performance made by the members of Beijing Opera clubs of Melbourne (founded in 1988) and revealing the Peking Opera costume collection at Arts Centre Melbourne (acquired in 1983), this exhibition juxtaposes two different cultural preservation practices: one is carried on by the senior group of the Chinese immigrants; the other is implemented by Australian art institutions. Through the contrast between these two practices, this exhibition provokes the question: how the imagination about a diasporic past informs the narratives about Australia. This exhibition also intends to challenge the division between the folk art and the contemporary art and blur the boundary between performance art and visual art.

Dec 1 to Jan 21, 2024 Barriletes de Nuestro Futuro (Kites from Our Future) by Juan Rodriguez Sandoval. This exhibition takes form as an artist-led community project, celebrating the profound and rich Guatemalan tradition of kite making. The project aspires to challenge and reshape Australian curriculum by reimagining the role of kite making in fostering community bonds and advocating for social change. Inspired by the exuberant Day of the Dead festivities in Sumpango, Saquatepequez, where kites dance in colourful splendour, this exhibition pays homage to the folklore and artistry of kite crafting, rooted in eco-centric principles using salvaged and recycled materials. These kites transcend the physical realm, serving as vessels of liberation and resistance against post-Spanish and Western influences imposed upon Guatemalan society. They boldly voice opposition to the corruption within the Guatemalan government, while also forging a profound connection to ancestral spirits, guiding them on their journey to the afterlife.

From the earthly to the celestial, the physical to the metaphysical, these exhibitions consider place, time and space in very different ways. The salt lake is a major survey exhibition of Murray Fredericks that brings together Salt, Array, Vanity and his most recent series, Blaze. Over the last 20 years, Fredericks has established himself as one of the leading international artists challenging the traditions of landscape photography. Stargazing brings together a range of photographic works that guide us towards the stars, the planets and celestial spaces in poetic, experimental, conceptual, and often quite abstract ways.
