Barrett has conceived of ACCA’s four galleries as an immersive environment of sound and light – a performative staging of the body, which bleeds and leaks, and into which the audience may enter to consider the physical, sensual and critical experience of listening. Presented as part of Suspended Moment: The Katthy Cavaliere Fellowship. Commissioning curator Annika Kristensen.

This major exhibition explores the dynamic and innovative nature of contemporary painting. The traditional grid and two-dimensional picture planes are replaced by modern surfaces, including drop sheets, sign vinyl, virtual space, and the gallery wall itself. Colour spills, splatters, pools and stretches through the gallery space, in artworks that challenge possibilities of scale, form, colour and gesture. Pigment and brushwork are combined with elements from design, sculpture, animation and textiles to create vibrant and unexpected three-dimensional, virtual and ephemeral artworks. Expanded Canvas showcases the ideas and aesthetics that characterise painting practice today, including artworks that reveal the continually evolving nature of the medium when fused with other disciplines and materials.

May 5 to 28 Janet Beckhouse – celebrating the life and work of a ceramic artist. In her practice Janet Beckhouse sculpted clay, loving the tactile feeling and plastic quality of the medium. Early in her career, Beckhouse acknowledged that she “made stuff” purely “by whim”. Her highly accomplished work progressed to feature fantastical subject matter, with the “skull” as a disquieting motif. Prior to her untimely passing in 2020, Beckhouse spoke that her artwork was a “joy” to share. Discover this joy in the skilful, intricate artwork created during 18 years of consistent studio practice.
