To June 16 Influential Australian Artist Series 2019: Tom Nicholson: Public Meeting – exploring the relationship between history, collective actions and their traces, internationally regarded Melbourne artist Tom Nicholson works with historical materials and the visual languages of art and politics. With an insistence on acts of imagination, solidarity and justice, Nicholson creates new narratives informed by listening, taking account and giving voice to others. A common motif within his work is the notion of the public monument, its weight, authority and finality, and also its ability to be questioned, reconfigured and reimagined. Public Meeting, curated by ACCA’s Artistic Director Max Delany, is the first large-scale exhibition to survey Nicholson’s acclaimed drawing, sculptural and social art practice, and brings together key projects from 1999 to the present, alongside new commissions, including Towards a monument to ‘Batman’s Treaty’ 2013-19, Gorge photograph, 13 September 1939, 2017-19, Evening shadows 2011-19 and Comparative monument (Shellal) 2014-17. The exhibition is complemented by a major new monograph ‘Tom Nicholson: Lines Towards Another’, published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, in association with ACCA, Melbourne and IMA, Brisbane. Originally trained in drawing, a tradition that deeply informs his practice, Nicholson is one of the most prominent Australian artists on the international stage, and has been included in major international exhibitions including Gwangju Biennale, 2018; Biennale of Sydney, 2006 and 2018; The National, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, 2017; Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge, UK, 2016; Jakarta Biennale, Jakarta, 2015; the Qalandiya International, West Bank and Gaza, 2012, 2014 and 2016; Shanghai Biennale 2012; among others.

May 14 to Aug 3 Michael Cook – now part of the collection, Michael Cook will have his first exhibition with Ten Cubed in May. 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. His work has a sense of quirkiness where 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.

To May 17 Andrew Rogers: Evolution From Maquettes to Major Sculptures 1996-2019. Whether it be one of the massive stone structures for the largest contemporary land art undertaking in the world, or a large-scale public sculpture in metal, every work has its genesis in an idea that is brought to life in a maquette. This exhibition explores the journey of an artwork from Maquette to Major Sculpture through an exhibition of the work of Andrew Rogers, titled Evolution. This exhibition of maquettes and sculptures will be framed by installation images of his large-scale public works. Rogers is a leading contemporary Australian artist whose work is exhibited in major galleries across Australia and internationally. His work can be found in prominent public and private collections around the world. Curated by Leanne Willis, Deakin University.
