MONTAGE: THE FULL CUT, 1999 –TRACEY MOFFATT AND GARY HILLBERG
Until – 28 JAN
Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 presents the full suite of eight montage films by artist Tracey Moffatt and her long-time collaborator Gary Hillberg. Exhibited all together for the first time, these works span 16 years of their collaborative practice, from the first montage work created in 1999 to the latest in 2015.
Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 is an ode to cinema and to the cinematic form, offering unprecedented insight into the stereotypes that populate our collective cultural imagination. Mining an extensive collection of iconic Hollywood films, telemovies and arthouse cinema, Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 invents new fictions and plays with narrative and character conventions to create highly charged compositions on polemic themes such as love, art, revolution and destruction.
Tracey Moffatt is regarded internationally as one of the most important Australian artists of our time, and in 2017 will become the first Australian Indigenous artist to present a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale. Gary Hillberg has been working as an experimental filmmaker and music video producer since the late 1980s.
Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 was curated and developed by Artspace, Sydney and is touring nationally in partnership with Museums & Galleries of NSW.
SPACED 3: NORTH BY SOUTHEAST
2 FEB – 16 MAR
Showcasing works developed by artists from Nordic countries and Australia during their ventures into new landscapes and unfamiliar terrain, spaced 3; north by southeast is the culmination of International Art Space’s third international residency program.
International Art Space (IAS) is a leading Western Australian arts organisation presenting dynamic socially-engaged and context-responsive art programs. Through contemporary visual art, IAS creates diverse and challenging experiences for artists and communities. Since its inception in 1998 by framers and arts professionals, IAS has run over 100 residency-based projects for artists from over 20 countries.
In 2016 and early 2018, ArtGeo Cultural Complex hosted Danish/Jamaican artist Michelle Eistrup in association with the IAS spaced 3: north by southeast project. Driven by a postcolonial subtext, Eistrup’s photographic images and sound recordings document people and paces she encountered during her residency in Busselton.
