Upcoming Exhibitions & Events


Do you dream in colour?
Collectivism

Amy Simmons, Ash Furnass, Emily Moore, Kat Mathieson, Katie Fox, Laura Clarke, Lisa McTiernan, Roxanne Meik, Sharon Fox, Sonja Sipala, Susan Payne, Victoria Mackey.

23 May  - 9 June 2013
Opening launch, Thursday 23 May 6-9pm


Collectivism, 12 emerging photographic artists, present Do You Dream in Colour? a series of black & white, and colour photographs, that draw inspiration from dreamscapes, songs and the oft‐held belief that people only dream in black and white. An eclectic group, Collectivism celebrates a diversity of ideas, styles and backgrounds.

From Ash Furnass's exploration of the darker side of life in images that grip like a vice when we are at our most vulnerable, to Roxanne Meik's work that delves into an imaginary world of humans and animals, and Laura Clarke's self-portraits, reflecting on, and accepting, the woman she has become: Masks, smoke, clocks, windows and even unicyclists also feature in the artworks that make up the exhibition. Do You Dream in Colour?

Newtown micro‐brewery, Young Henrys, will be partnering with COLLECTIVISM for the launch.



Everything must go
Krystal Seigerman

23 May  - 9 June 2013
Opening launch, Thursday 23 May 6-9pm

Krystal Seigerman's Everything must go is a series of sixteen documentary photographs, exploring the decline of small businesses through the microcosm of a stretch of Parramatta Road, in Sydney’s inner west. Shooting in rich colour, Seigerman has focused on the details of these once flourishing shops, which now stand empty - the faded signage, the peeling paint, the papered-up shop windows - all traces of what was. In doing so, she manages to find a melancholy beauty within a road that is famously noisy, ugly and abrasive, yet full of history.

Since graduating with a Bachelor of Media Arts (photography) from Deakin University in 2003, Seigerman has gained a reputation for her quietly reflective documentary portraits. She has been a finalist in the National Photographic Portrait Prize and a three-time finalist in the prestigious Olive Cotton Award for excellence in portraiture. Seigerman has also exhibited extensively with Many Australian Photographers (MAPgroup), an independent association of documentary photographers.
