Official Opening Friday 16 Jun
The way in which we listen determines what we hear. Noise Museum brings together the work of seven contemporary artists to arouse modes of active listening and create a shared aural space within Heathcote Gallery. With listening and hearing central to their practices, these artists move across mediums of video, digital media, installation, text and sound, creating works that range from field recordings, sound visualisations, architectural interventions, through to intimate assemblages exploring the relationship between acts of listening and personal histories. This exhibition works with the environment, creating an immersive social space and challenging the boundaries between sound, noise, music and art.

6 May - 11 Jun
Opening night Fri 5 May 6-8pm
Locale showcases the artwork of Emma Jolley, Monika Lukowska, Carly Lynch, Melanie McKee, Layli Rakhsha, Rachel Salmon-Lomas, and Gemma Weston. This exhibition takes an interdisciplinary printmaking approach to address concerns faced by contemporary artists in an era of increased mobility and development of place. The artists address several significant aspects of place through their work, and recognize that the experience of dislocation, relocation, change and memory of place is common to many. Via temporal and physical explorations of place, from the site-specific to unattainable sites, the artists have used printmaking as a means of returning to place.
