June 29 to Sept 8 On Vulnerability and Doubt brings together works by national and international artists all variously engaging with questions around the awkwardness, fragility and humility of the human condition. The role of the Doubting Thomas, and the privileging of feeling over the visual, as well as the role of humour, ‘the minor’ and ‘otherwise’ in relation to figures of authority are other subjects explored in a variety of mediums including painting, printmaking, sculpture and video. On Vulnerability and Doubt also explores some the complexities that comes with artists putting themselves and their work on display, and the bringing down of one’s guard in the face of vulnerability and humour. Curated by ACCA’s Artistic Director Max Delany. Artists: Andrea Büttner, Cherine Fahd, Brent Harris, Tala Madani, Linda Marrinon, Archie Moore, Charlie Sofo and Ambera Wellmann.

To Aug 3 Michael Cook – Ten Cubed first collected Michael Cook’s work in 2014 with the acquisition of ‘Majority Rule (Tunnel)’ and has continued to acquire his works from the ‘Mother’ and ‘Invasion’ series. Now part of the collection, Cook will have his first exhibition with Ten Cubed. Cook is a Brisbane-based photomedia artist with Bidjara heritage. His photographs subtly reveal the inconvenient truth and re-stage colonial scenes. In ‘Majority Rule’, he invites the viewer to imagine an Australia with Indigenous people being the majority by reversing social roles in the accustomed cultural hierarchy. Cook’s works convey a sense of quirkiness as colonial histories are recapitulated with stylised visuals. This unique aesthetic recalls a shared social history of our past experiences, establishing a universal connection that transcend cultures and perspectives. The exhibition will include works from ‘Majority Rule’, ‘Mother’ and his latest series of work ‘Invasion’. Michael Cook is represented by THIS IS NO FANTASY, Melbourne and Andrew Baker Art Dealer, Brisbane.
