The Dax Centre, encompassing the Cunningham Dax Collection, consists of more than 15,000 works on paper, paintings, ceramics and textiles created by people with an experience of mental illness and/or trauma.
To May 16 Imaginarium by Adam Knapper. Adam Knapper challenges the convention of categorisation both as an artist and in relation to the history of his lived experience of mental illness.
gives precedence to Knapper’s unique and subjective vision, and aims to question the relevance of knowing the details of an artist’s diagnosis in understanding their work.
Spanning the last twenty-five years, Knapper’s body of work includes painting, illustration and street art and he has drawn inspiration from a broad range of sources including Surrealism, Pop Art, music and film. This exhibition invites viewers to be guided by their imagination, reflecting Knapper’s desire to create a whimsical playground of intersecting ideas and motifs.
Imaginarium is the third in The Dax Centre’s program of solo exhibitions, which brings focus to the work of certain artists whose practice raises issues of particular significance within the field of art and mental health.

To April 27 Solitaire featuring works from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection and selected loans, exploring the singular human figure in modern and contemporary Australian paintings and sculptures. In over 40 works by artists including Rick Amor, Charles Blackman, Peter Booth, Louise Hearman, Sidney Nolan, Mike Parr, Sally Smart, Albert Tucker, Jenny Watson and many others. The solitary figure appears in manifold guises and divergent contexts, revealing a range of insights into the experience of solitude.
Also, Yellow Eyes Burn and Return by Michelle Ussher this exhibition presents a series of new works on paper, recent oil paintings and a sculpture in glazed ceramic. United by an emphasis on the handmade, and finished in luminous colours, the works range between abstract images representative of the eye, and depictions of imaginary characters. Their fraught surfaces and half-materialised forms produce a sense of history entangled with the workings of imagination and memory.
