To June 10 Restless – comprises recent works by Megan Evans, Karla Dickens, Jordan Marani and Nick Devlin.
These works are presented as a counterpoint to a suite of ‘welt’ paintings by Gordon Bennett (1955-2014). Bennett’s highly influential exhibition ‘A Black History’ (1993 Sutton Gallery, Melbourne) marked a turning point in Australian art history. At the time, Bennett’s work confronted Australian and international audiences with an unprecedented questioning of the ways in which Australian history is constructed and presented. In 2017, these same paintings sensitively articulate both personal and shared experiences, and shine a light on the processes of revealing and concealing the past. More than unpacking the complexities of history, Bennett’s often chilling imagery can be understood as a declaration of new possibilities, responsibilities and sensitivities for Australian artists and curators.

To June 10 Let’s dance – inspired by a number of Arts Project artists who have explored dance in its many forms; from the discipline of classical ballet to the free form of busting a move; both dance as performed on stage or in the relative privacy of one’s bedroom, as social courtship, part of sacred ritual as well as, on occasion, as a physical form of endurance or protest. Artworks by Arts Project artists including Peter Ben, Valerio Ciccone, Boris Cipusev, Alan Constable, Leo Cussen, Patrick Francis, Brigid Hanrahan, Paul Hodges and Daniel Pace, joined by a selection of work by guest artists including Angela Brennan, Cate Consandine, Sarah Contos, nova Milne and Tony Schwensen.

June 17 to July 22 (opening Sat June 17, 3-5pm) Ian Gold Solo. Gold’s abstract paintings echo the rhythm and repetition of his process.

Drawing inspiration from subjects that excite his curiosity, Gold’s work often alludes to popular culture, animals and the St Kilda Saints. With a penchant for abstract forms and hidden references, Ian Gold Solo is Gold’s first solo exhibition at Arts Project Australia.
