To Nov 19 Kader Attia – the exhibition presents over a decade of this leading French-Algerian artist’s work, whose genre-defying practice explores ideas of cultural exchange, appropriation and the entangled relationship between extra-occidental culture and the West in the wake of decolonisation. This first survey of the artist’s work in Australia encompasses major works including ‘Ghost’ (2007), an installation of empty aluminium-foil casts of hollow figures seated as if in prayer; ‘Asesinos! Asesinos!’ (2014), over one hundred doors reconfigured in a vast, upright formation, recalling bodies that surge forward as a crowd in protest; and ‘The Construction of Fear: A Culture of Evil’ (2013), a vast library of interlocking shelves, laden with 19th and 20th century books and newspapers that extend the colonial gaze into the present through their depiction of European encounters with a non-Western, uncivilised ‘other’. Presented in association with the Melbourne Festival and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), Sydney.

Also, Outer Place by Sue Anderson. ‘My home, a paddock on the edge of a growing city is where I witness the open spaces becoming suburbs and nature disappearing. I see people caught in traffic heading in all directions and housing appearing over every horizon. The sanctuary of the coast and the forest with its grace and beauty, nurtures, revives and inspires in contrast to the built environment. Out of town, on the outskirts, away from the ‘big smoke’, Outer Place is a collection of art works exploring vivid experiences in the landscape.’ – Sue Anderson, 2017. Sue Anderson’s deep connection to the natural environment resonates poignantly throughout her exhibition. Anderson explores through her unique visual language of richly layered oil paintings, ceramic sculptures and lithographs, the beauty, power and vulnerability of the landscape and the relationships, interactions and impact of humans within these surroundings. Her work is alive, uplifting and highly evocative.
