Could we ever know each other...?

Mixed-media
September 18  - October 26, 2013

Issues surrounding human rights, political conflict and cultural displacement have been a driving force throughout Hassan's art practice. Could we ever know each other....? continues to explore these issues and challenges viewers to re-evaluate their perceptions of cultural histories and the importance of civic responsibility. Selected works in this exhibition intricately intertwine ongoing and immediate global concerns with the artist's commitments to create a deeper meaning of these issues within contemporary society and our environment.

Patrick Mahon
Water & Tower Allegory

Printed Sculpture
October 30 - December 7, 2013

Through Water & Tower Allegory Mahon continues his exploration into architectural forms, decorative and analytical patterns, and built structures to reference our human connection to shifting environmental conditions. Invoking water as both a natural and socially inscribed material, and towers and "mining tipples" as paradigms of human enterprise and intervention, Mahon has created inventive works where solids and liquids intersect to produce provocative forms.

Gordon Monahan
Erratum Addendum

Sound installation
January 8 - February 15, 2014

Erratum Addendum explores the physicality and engagement that is created through the experience of sound. This work is based on Marcel Duchamp’s Erratum Musical composed in 1913, considered to be the first piece of “chance music”, predating John Cage’s chance pieces by some 37 years. 

Monahan took the original note sequences and generated new variations by applying the compositional processes of inversion and retrograde. The new note sequences are then transposed to several resisters of the piano. These are recorded, played back in indeterminate order, and processed into eight-channel audio distribution through a Max/MSP patch.

Reading Week: February 18 - 22 (Gallery is closed)

Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge

Precarious
Photography
March 5 - April 12, 2014

The concept of work is a central theme in Condé and Beveridge's art practice. The artists consider work an important component of people's identities and have advocated over the years to raise awareness of the importance and value of labour. Precarious, explores issues surrounding work that is often described as part-time, without job security or benefits, and is typically poorly paid.
