Amalia Pica

4 August – 7 October 2018

Opening: Friday 3 August 6.30pm

 

With a series of new commissioned works, Amalia Pica explores the techniques, potential, and shortcomings of communication between different species.

 

The project is a continuation of Pica’s longstanding consideration of language, comprehension, misunderstanding, translation, and listening. Through sculpture, photography, installation, performance and video, Pica’s work investigates how we communicate beyond the barriers of language.

 

Born during Argentina’s dictatorship, Pica explores the relationship between form and politics, and between history and representation. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Australia.

 

Curated at PICA by Eugenio Viola and developed in partnership with The Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, and The Power Plant, Toronto, with the generous support of the Keir Foundation.

 

A Self Portrait

Khaled Sabsabi

4 August – 7 October 2018

Opening: Friday 3 August 6.30pm

 

Working across mediums, borders, cultures, and disciplines, Khaled Sabsabi explores the complexities of place, identity, displacement, and ideological differences associated with migrant experiences and marginalisation to promote cultural awareness and acceptance.

 

A Self Portrait is the biggest survey exhibition of Sabsabi’s work to date and features a new commission as well as several works not previously exhibited. Lebanese born and Australian based, Sabsabi’s practice is informed by moving between communities, and attempts to enlighten our understanding of universal dynamics - a more complex and unknowable task than looking into our own identities.

 

Curated by Eugenio Viola.

Hatched

National Graduate Show 2018 | 19 May – 15 July

 

Since 1992, the Hatched National Graduate Show has presented the work of over one thousand artists alongside that of their national peers in this unique showcase of emergent talent. Many of Australia’s most successful artistic careers have been launched this way.

 

From painting, sculpture and drawing, to installation, video, and sound work, this exhibition offers an intriguing snapshot of current contemporary art practices in Australia.

 

Hatched is one of the most enduring and fundamental ways that PICA fulfils its mission of supporting innovative new art practices and providing artists with career nurturing opportunities. Hatched tests the pulse of the nation’s emerging arts scene while acting as an important platform for the next generation of Australian artists.
