Dec to Feb, 2021 Of Colour and Light 2020 – this is the third abstract biennial Anna Prifti curates to provide a platform to women abstract artists from the state of Victoria. It started in 2016 with the aim to showcase and advocate that women artists have been an integral part of the Abstract movement. This year the biennial coincides with the opening of a new gallery space in Adderley Street, West Melbourne. There will be a variety of artworks on show, with women artists working in a diverse range of contemporary art practices, emerging, established and well-recognised careers. Abstraction in an array of styles – lyrical, expressive, intuitive, hard-edged, reductive, minimalist – becomes unified by an ongoing conversation on colour and light. Catalogue essay written by Dr Wendy Kelly. Opening event TBA.

Nov 4 to 28 Wet Paint by William Breen. Breen’s forthcoming exhibition presents a fresh series of his ever-popular urban landscapes. Focusing on the streets and laneways of inner Melbourne, Breen’s images are revered for their intricate attention detail, vivid colouration and surreal lack of human presence. This latest exhibition presents a series of smaller works on paper focusing on the streets of Fitzroy and seems particularly timely given the socially distanced impact Melbourne’s recent lockdowns have had on the city’s streets and normally bustling, much loved hospitality industries.

Dec 1 to 23 Nocturne by Hannah Quinlivan. Quinlivan multi-disciplinary practice grapples with contemporary issues of human migration, currents of societal emotions and the fleeting nature of time through the ephemeral quality of spatial drawings and their shadows. Utilising the linear potential of drawing, painting, wire and LED sculptures and impermanent salt installations, Quinlivan’s work possesses an organic, lively quality that creates an immersive experience for the viewer.

Dec 5 to March 15, 2021 Overlapping Magisteria: The 2020 Macfarlane Commissions. Encompassing living organisms, kinetic installations and immersive assemblages, Overlapping Magisteria pays attention to multiple ways of knowing, sensing, feeling and interacting with the world. The works by participating artists including Robert Andrew, Mimosa Echard, Sidney McMahon, Sam Petersen and Isadora Vaughan, draw on various social, cultural, technical and material forms, unsettling the lingering divide between nature and culture towards more complex realms of knowledge and experience. Overlapping Majisteria is the second edition of the Macfarlane Commissions, a multi-year partnership that supports ambitious projects by contemporary artists. Curated by Max Delany and Miriam Kelly.

To Dec 9 An Intimate Distance by Esther Erlich. Fox Galleries presents An Intimate Distance; an empowering series of King Princess portraits by Esther Erlich, it is the third launch of Spring in the Modern Seasons, the great curve publication and exhibition series, documenting the unprecedented atmosphere of 2020. Erlich is best known for her provocative portraits that engage emotion through looking. This enhanced intimacy utilises fashion aesthetics and subculture iconography, a collection of paintings and drawings that depict half- figures, indeterminate hyper-gendered superheros with staring eyes and expressive hand gestures that explode into abstraction. They are a flurry of dazzling, self-assured characters, that hold your gaze and invite you into a performative narrative of mutual gaze.
