Feb 12 to April 5 Deakin University Art Gallery presents Conversations in space, a group exhibition in the form of an inter-generational dialogue between artists and objects in virtual and real spaces. Curated by Deakin’s James Lynch, the exhibition presents new works by senior Australian artist Helen Maudsley alongside works by Laura Skerlj, Noriko Nakamura and Alex Hobba. Conversations in space is an interplay between painting, animation and sculptural practices focusing on object relations and their proxies and stand-ins in a flat time world.

Feb 3 to April 7 Angels in Exile – Ayman Kaake, Felix Saturn, Hannah BrontÎ, Jason Ebeyer, Julian Leigh May, Norton Fredericks, and TanÈ Andrews. This exhibition explores the concept of paradise and how queer communities create safe and joyful spaces. It references John Milton’s poem Paradise Lost to question the impact of religious stories on ethics and politics, whilst drawing parallels to the historical persecution of queer people. It also looks at how queer resistance can challenge exclusion and discrimination, using celestial figures and rebel icons as sources of empowerment.

Feb 3 to April 7 Placid in Play – Caleb Thaiday (Cerulean), Elijah Money (Mora Money), and Stone Turner (Stone Motherless Cold). This exhibition imagines a queer Blak Futurism that celebrates Blak bodies and Blak joy through a site of respite, reflection, and relaxation. The artists collaboratively construct an oasis-like installation that captures the essence of queer Blak sanctuaries, celebrating waterways and Country. Placid in Play places a strong emphasis on creating spaces where queer Mob can unite, coexist, and convalesce.

Feb 3 to April 7 I can’t wait for you to grow by Adrian Jing Song and Phương Lê. This collaborative exhibition explores hidden family histories through photography, installation, and artist books by Song and Lê. Both raised in Southeast Asian households, their works delve into themes of “the unspoken” and “the withheld” within their diasporic families. The exhibition invites viewers to engage with the family archive as an indecipherable mystery, open to interpretation and possibility.

Jan 30 to March 2 Baoxian Du: WE – locally based Chinese artist Baoxian Du presents recent photographic work from three major series. In I the artist poses for a powerful suite of self-portraits. Dressed in an array of outfits often holding cleaning items, or grocery goods and a bottle of wine, these works play on notions of female domestic identity and evoke the seemingly endless repetition of days that the Covid lockdowns engendered. We is the title for Du’s portrait series of newly arrived residents that celebrate Lunar New Year who live, work or study in Whitehorse, featuring students from the LOUISE Multicultural Community Centre based in the Box Hill Town Hall.
