Sept 14 to Nov 17, 2019 The ACCA International, Haroon Mirza: The Construction of an Act. The annual ACCA International brings to Melbourne an artist at a pivotal point in their career, often presenting to Australian audiences for the first time. This is the first solo exhibition in Australia by acclaimed London-based artist Haroon Mirza, which brings new commissions into dialogue with representations of the artist’s recent work. Mirza’s practice, encompassing sculptural assemblage, immersive installation and live performance, has its origins in music; in the rhythm, syncopation and sampling techniques informed by the artist’s early experience as a DJ. For The Construction of an Act, presented with Melbourne International Arts Festival, Mirza will consider ACCA’s vast architecture as a reverberation chamber in which a disparate body of works come together to form a conceptual and sonic whole. For this new commission Mirza has constructed a residency studio within the gallery, as a space for local and international collaborators to undertake week-long residencies, culminating in a live performance within the exhibition. Live performance: Oct 8, 6.30pm, with collaborators – Australian composer-performer James Rushford; award-winning London-based dance artist and choreographer Julie Cunningham; and Australian-born, London-based soprano Jessica Aszodi.

Often creating imagery within the formalist context of geometry and colour, intuition – the ability to understand something instinctively ñ plays a large part in each of their working processes. Curated by Dr David Sequeira.

To Oct 26 Rosemary Laing. Ten Cubed is delighted to announce artist Rosemary Laing to be the latest addition to the Ten Cubed 2 Collection. Ten Cubed began collecting Laing in 2011 with the acquisition of ‘Aristide, Eudoxia, Prowse from the Leak Series’ (2010). Laing is a Sydney-based photo-media artist. Laing’s photographs are theatrical, performative and conceptual. Each series of work has established its own set of visual language and references, underpinned by the physical intervention undertaken in situ rather than digital manipulation. ‘In Buddens’ (2017), hundreds of unwanted clothes were placed on a dry riverbed that leads to Wreck Bay in New South Wales, the site of as many shipwrecks occurred in the past. Her photographic projects are created in relation to the politics and the histories of a place or situation, images of the landscape are often interrupted with deliberately built structure to explore the boundary between built and natural environment and our relationship to the land. The exhibition features works from ‘One dozen unnatural disasters in the Australian landscape’ (2003), ‘Leak’ (2010), ‘The Paper’ (2013) and ‘Buddens’ (2017). Rosemary Laing is represented by Tolarno Galleries, Melbourne.
