To Oct 4 Julian Martin: Transformer.
Oct 11 to Nov 29 (opening Sat Oct 11, 3-5pm) Now the heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse, curated by Glenn Barkley. The title of this exhibition comes from a song, ‘Tears of Rage’ written by Bob Dylan and Richard Manuel of the Band and recorded in Woodstock during an intense period of creativity in 1967. I profess to not know what Now the heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse means but I know how it feels. I feel it is mostly about love, of a heart filled to the brim, that rattles and shakes and feels fecund. The exhibition is built in a similar way and it is intuitive not structured. It is a lyric I hold in my head and heart when I think about Arts Project. Many of the artists of Arts Project have families that support and love them in a way that is profound and life changing and due to their circumstances these two things, love and family, are fore-grounded in their work in a really direct, unfiltered way. In Now the heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse I want to broaden this out to include other artists who have also made, or make work, about these two important things that touch everyone one of us as people in some way, but which is sometimes hidden due to the cynical nature of much contemporary art.

Art as a Verb
is a major thematic exhibition that takes as its starting point the concept of art as action, both inside the gallery and beyond. Drawing upon the unbridled energy and anarchy of fluxus and happenings, and looking back to the moment that art dematerialised, Art as a Verb presents a range of projects from the 1960s to today that challenge the traditional role of the artist and the site of the museum. Bringing together historical as well as contemporary artworks from a wide range of Australian and international practitioners – including Marina Abramovi , Bas Jan Ader, Martin Creed, Andrea Fraser, Tim Johnson, Allan Kaprow, Ian Milliss, Yoko Ono, Jill Scott and many more – the exhibition will feature documentation of actions and performances, situational pieces, instructional works, manifestoes and interactive props, alongside a program of live events.
