Three of our member artists will exhibit in Sydney Contemporary this year, the main art fair in Australia. Chris Hopewell and Jurek Wybraniec will represent Art Collective WA at Booth C07 and Alex Spremberg has been curated into Installation Contemporary - an exhibition of large-scale works that go beyond the scope of the art fair booth and feature throughout the Carriageworks.
JEREMY KIRWAN-WARD 16 SEPTEMBER - 7 OCTOBER VIEW WITH A ROOM 2017 AND BOOK LAUNCH
Our next artist's monograph will focus on the art and career of Jeremy Kirwan-Ward. Over a 45- year career, he has made a considerable contribution to Australian art through educative roles, enriching our private spaces and urban environments through varied art projects, and engaging in contemporary art dialogue through an extensive exhibitions history and international associations with the Australian Centre for Concrete Art. The 150-page monograph, the second in our Western Australian artist series, will feature essays by knowledgeable arts writers John Barrett-Lennard and Margaret Moore, along with over 100 colour plates. In conjunction with the book launch, Jeremy has been working on a new series of paintings for a special exhibition at Art Collective WA alongside key historical works from his career.

14 OCTOBER - 11 NOVEMBER
Joanna Lamb presents new works depicting suburban and urban streetscapes. Originally intended to be studies for larger paintings, these works using collage techniques have become a focused extension of the artist1s practice. Based on photographs of existing houses and streetscapes, the works use a reductive technique that emphasises relationships between shape and colour. Some of the locations are known to the artist from growing up in Perth, others are houses that standout for particular reasons, sometimes surrounded by newer developments, or are quintessential examples of period architecture. Although this particular body of work is based on Perth suburbs, the images could be representational of many other suburbs in many other places.
