To June 24 Dwelling Poetically: Mexico City, a case study – considers the ways artists and cities mutually transform each other. One of the great cross-roads of north America, Mexico City has taken prominence not only as one of America’s most populous urban centres, and as Latin America’s strongest economy, but as a node of rich and potent cultural production thanks in part to a whole generation of artists from the ’90s through to the burgeoning, much-discussed contemporary scene. Dwelling Poetically proposes a portrait of the Mexican capital through a selection of artists that live there, have lived there, or have only passed through, and yet have nevertheless contributed to its composition. Developed by guest curator Chris Sharp, assisted by Fabiola Talavera, Dwelling Poetically: Mexico City, a case study presents new and existing work by Francis Alÿs, Andrew Birk, Ramiro Chaves, Isabel Nuño de Buen, Martin Soto Climent, Chelsea Culprit, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Ektor Garcia, Yann Gerstberger, Jaki Irvine, Kate Newby and Melanie Smith.

June 15 to July 14 (opening Thurs June 14, 5.30pm) Overdrawn – Kate Daw, Xin Xiao Chan, Lou Hubbard, Raafat Ishak, Tang Lin Nah, Nick Selenitsch, Tam Chew Seng and Eleanor Lim Shan. Drawing can be seen to have its origins in the space between pictures and text. Perhaps at some point in history, drawing and writing may even have once been one and the same. In Overdrawn, ideas and processes connected with drawing are a starting point for both critical dialogue and artistic output. This exhibition explores the notion of expanded drawing practice as a process of hybridising and fusing a variety of concepts, media and techniques. Overdrawn is a collaborative project between the Victorian College of the Arts and the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.

The exhibition will revolve around five of the artist’s projects. Peter Atkins is represented by Tolarno Galleries in Melbourne and GAGPROJECTS in Adelaide. June 26 to Sept 8 Pat Brassington.

May 31 to June 23 BALI – SYDNEY… an outsider between cultures by Peter Dittmar. Dittmar is a Sydney-based German-Australian artist who, for many years, has divided his time between his studios in Sydney and Bali and his home city of Munich. Dittmar explores the process of intercultural transition and moves continually between three countries, and his works embrace the cultural influences of the places he lives between. Dittmar’s paintings are rich, yet peaceful; reflecting the spiritual and textural elements of Bali with the graphic, and calligraphic, precision of contemporary life in both Germany and Australia. Quadrant Gallery is delighted to be exhibiting his works in Melbourne.

May 30 to July 13 Boneta-Marie Mabo: Immersed. Immersed is a collection of portraits of First Nations women that celebrates resistance against patriarchal colonialism. Each woman presents herself as she wants you to see her. The portraits offer a glimpse of individual resistance, power and beauty. First Nations women are over-represented in systems of control. Our lives are treated as an inconvenience to white society. Our existence unsettles white Australia because it is a reminder that First Nations people are still here, that sovereignty was never ceded. Even though we are surrounded by ugliness, we immerse ourselves in the fight for equality and justice. Unashamed and unapologetic, this collection invites you to see First Nations women as we see ourselves. (Artist statement from email conversation, January 2018).
