Tracey Moffatt in Tate's 'A Year in Art: Australia 1992'

Tracey Moffatt in Tate's 'A Year in Art: Australia 1992'


A Year in Art: Australia 1992 brings together works by Australian artists to examine debates around land rights and the ongoing legacies of colonialism.

This exhibition features artworks made before and after 1992 that explore the continuing relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have with their lands. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples do not state that the land ‘belongs’ to them in a Western sense of ownership. 

The land is not seen as something to be purchased or divided, but rather a living entity that is the basis for and sustains cultural existence. This includes language, lore, family and identity. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a reciprocal, custodial relationship with Country, with the knowledge and responsibility to care for their lands. This is referred to as connection to Country.

'The Other Portrait' featuring Julie Rrap


For Sydney artists Cherine Fahd and Julie Rrap capturing a likeness is merely at the surface of what working with portraiture offers. In curating The Other Portrait, these two artists pursue deeper questions about the transmission of self-image across the gulfs between people.

Marley Dawson in the Washington Post

Marley Dawson in the Washington Post


Marley Dawson and the Phillips Collection operate on different planes. The museum is known for paintings that are hushed, serene and even transcendental; Dawson makes metal sculptures that spin, pivot and occasionally spit fire. But the Australian conceptual sculptor and the Washington museum meet in midair, like high-wire acrobats from disparate troupes, for 'Ghosts'. It’s the latest instalment in “Intersections,” a series in which contemporary artists respond to the Phillips’s art.

Nyapanyapa Yunupingu - WINNER of the 2021 Wynne Prize

Nyapanyapa Yunupingu - WINNER of the 2021 Wynne Prize


HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Nyapanyapa Yunupingu who is the WINNER of the 2021 Wynne Prize with her fantastic painting 'Garak – night sky' (2020).

"Djulpan, the Seven Sisters, are one of the first creations. They left the ancestral elders Nyiwuu1e49ba and Rranyirranyi at the islands called Djakapurra, Gurrarri, Nalkuma, Dhakalu014ba, Bandayu014ba, u014aarrayarri and Wärru. They paddled until they arrived at Nanydjaka (Cape Arnhem). There they rested for some time to gather their strength, then set off again along the coast, passing the Gumatj lands near Manydjarrarru014ba (Daliwuy Bay). They travelled past the Dhuwa lands, Bariu014burawuy and u014aumuwuy (Turtle Beach), and landed at Gärriri (the Yirritja side of the creek at Rocky Bay). They paddled up the beach called Dhuraka (Rocky Bay) and this is where the Djulpan ended their journey." – Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, 2021⁠

'Garak – night sky' (2020) was included in Yunupingu's solo exhibition 'The Little Things' at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery in January of this year.

Yunupingu has been represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery since 2008.

POSTPONED: Patricia Piccinini's exhibition 'A Miracle Constantly Repeated'

POSTPONED: Patricia Piccinini's exhibition 'A Miracle Constantly Repeated'


Unfortunately due to the lockdown in Melbourne, Patricia Piccinini's landmark exhibition 'A Miracle Constantly Repeated' will remain closed until after the Queen's Birthday weekend, with plans to reopen Tuesday 15 June.

In the meantime, we are thrilled to share images of Piccinini's first extensive hometown show in almost two decades, situated in Melbourne's Flinders Street Station Ballroom.

After holding Melbourne’s imagination for decades, the mysterious ballroom above Flinders Street Station (and its surrounding hidden rooms) have transformed into an eco-system of hyper-real silicone sculptures, video, sound and light devised by Piccinini.⁠

'A Miracle Constantly Repeated' forms part of 'RISING', a major cultural event created by a diverse team of local, national and international artists and curators.⁠

Tom Polo finalist in the 2021 Sir John Sulman Prize

Tom Polo finalist in the 2021 Sir John Sulman Prize


We are thrilled to share Tom Polo's fantastic painting 'the embrace (every other way around)' (2021) which is a finalist in the 2021 Sir John Sulman Prize.

"In my paintings, I’m interested in the emotional and physical space between people and their relationships to one another.

In 'the embrace (every other way around)', two faces are engaged in a stare-off, whilst an oversized pink hand appears to draw one figure closer to the other. I’ve been thinking a lot about how to depict intimacy, particularly after the last year where our proximity to one another has been largely restricted or confined.

Thin washes of dark colour act as veils or barriers, creating a space that is both layered yet shallow. These layers contain fragments of text – often my own musings or things overheard – extending ideas of what is hidden and what is revealed." – Tom Polo, 2021

Mikala Dwyer’s new public art commission 'Apparition'

Mikala Dwyer’s new public art commission 'Apparition'


Mikala Dwyer’s new temporary public art commission, 'Apparition', can be seen after dark at University Square in the Melbourne suburb of Carlton.⁠

Activated after dark, 'Apparition' responds to University Square as a space in flux, suspended between stages of landscape redevelopment for the Metro Tunnel project. This temporary public artwork was developed through a long-term engagement with the site, beginning with a two-week intensive that focused on the contested public realm. ⁠

Dwyer is interested in the sensibility and mythology of objects and spaces, including the irrational and the repressed. For Apparition, she was inspired by a population of possums that inhabits the mature elm trees at the heart of the square.⁠

Dwyer worked with animator Gina Moore to create a giant holographic possum, which haunts the square’s northern plaza at night.⁠

'Apparition' was commissioned by the City of Melbourne in collaboration with RMIT University.⁠

Dwyer will have her 5th solo exhibition at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery this July. ⁠

We are thrilled to announce the inclusion of Mikala Dwyer, Louise Hearman, Caroline Rothwell, and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu in Part Two of 'Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now' at the National Gallery of Australia.⁠

Co-curators of the exhibition Dr Deborah Hart and Elspeth Pitt emphasise that this is still an exhibition – and a broader conversation – that we need to have in Australia.⁠

Marley Dawson's sculptural exhibition now open at The Phillips Collection in Washington DC.

Marley Dawson's sculptural exhibition now open at The Phillips Collection in Washington DC.


We are thrilled to share 'ghosts', a sculptural exhibition now open at The Phillips Collection in Washington DC.

Inspired by the dramatic architecture of the Phillips’s Goh Annex stairway, Marley Dawson has created two kinetic sculptures that accentuate its spiral configuration.

The first group is comprised of brass chairs—five suspended from the Annex dome at different heights and floating at different axis points, and two seated on the landings and set in motion via mechanised shafts.

Dawson’s other piece is a wall-mounted sculpture consisting of hundred of brass rods arranged on a brass track to allow movement. It speaks to Morris Louis’s painting Number 182, scaled to Dawson’s height. A small motor within the work oscillates the rods, giving them a sway and hum that echo the shimmering radiance of Louis’s painting.

'ghosts' forms part of 'Intersections' at the Phillips Collection, a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions.

Dawson will have his sixth solo show at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery this July.

Caroline Rothwell winner of the Ravenswood Women’s Art Prize

Caroline Rothwell winner of the Ravenswood Women’s Art Prize


Congratulations to Caroline Rothwell who won the Ravenswood Women’s Art Prize with her painting 'Vault' (2020) last night. ⁠

The Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize is an annual acquisitive prize that was launched in 2017 to advance art and opportunity for emerging and established women artists in Australia. It is the highest value professional artist prize for women in Australia.⁠

'Vault' interrogates the seduction of the 19th-century Wunderkammer (cabinet of curiosities), where specimens and artefacts were displayed in European aristocratic house museums. The process of collection and display reflects a Western disconnect from nature that is under review for our 21st-century moment in which a battle rages to recognise the value of traditional knowledge and the natural world.⁠

Event: Daniel Boyd discusses his installation 'Pediment/Impediment'


Join artist Daniel Boyd and a multidisciplinary panel at 6:30pm tonight in the Chau Chak Wing Museum for a discussion exploring Boyd’s installation 'Pediment/Impediment' and the idea of darkness as a form of Indigenous resistance.

Throughout his practice, Boyd often works with archives and museum collections as source material to create his vision of decolonisation. Over a period of months, Boyd researched the Chau Chak Wing Museum’s various collections, eventually selecting a group of 19th century plaster casts from the Nicholson Collection of antiquities. Veiled in pinpoints of light, the installation employs the idea of darkness as a form of Indigenous resistance to counter the power of Enlightenment ideas and western civilisation.

'WAH-WAH x KAYLENE WHISKEY' a creative collaboration


We are thrilled to share 'WAH-WAH x KAYLENE WHISKEY' a creative collaboration between designer Kaylene Milner and artist Kaylene Whiskey.

This 100% superfine merino wool knitted jumper is available for pre-order for shipping in July. 

"I first came across Kaylene Whiskey's artwork back in 2017 when I was visiting the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. I was immediately drawn to this colourful canvas that captured an imagined world of pop cultural icons amongst the everyday goings on of life. I felt such a connection to the sense of escapism that different musical genres can inspire. The composition of the artworks were not all that unlike the colourful all over knitwear designs I had been working on with WAH-WAH. And then I saw the artists name! Another Kaylene! It was a sign, and I knew our paths would have to cross one day." -Kaylene of WAH-WAH AUSTRALIA

Kaylene Whiskey's solo exhibition 'Sistas' opens at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery tomorrow, May 12.

Patricia Piccinini discusses RISING with Broadsheet


One of the busiest buildings in Melbourne is also one of the most neglected. The ballroom and the adjacent upstairs spaces of Flinders Street Station have near-mythical status.

It’s the perfect environment for the uncanny, uncomfortable, but very human work of artist Patricia Piccinini. Her new show, A Miracle Constantly Repeated, appearing at Rising, layers new work on old, reimagining the space within the parameters of Piccinini’s world. It’s not always pretty, but it is always beautiful.

Kaylene Whiskey in 'Badu Gili: Wonder Women'

Kaylene Whiskey in 'Badu Gili: Wonder Women'


Curated by Coby Edgar, the Art Gallery of New South Wales' Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, 'Badu Gili: Wonder Women' marks a creative collaboration between the Opera House and AGNSW to mark the latter's 150th anniversary. ⁠

As the sun sets each day, the Opera House's eastern Bennelong sail will be illuminated with a projection of a vibrant six-minute animation, all depicting artworks from the AGNSW's collection.⁠

The animation will repeat three more times each night — approximately every hour, but the timing changes every evening depending on the season and whatever might be on at the Opera House's Forecourt.⁠

'Badu Gili' also ran in 2018; however, in 2021 it will display its first all-female lineup featuring Kaylene Whiskey, amongst other female artists.

'Badu Gili: Wonder Women' will light up the Sydney Opera House's sails every night from Friday, April 23.⁠

'Doomed' by Tracey Moffatt in Brisbane's IMA

'Doomed' by Tracey Moffatt in Brisbane's IMA


Tapping into the looming sense of danger that the climate crisis instills in many, 'Doomed' by Tracey Moffatt and collaborator Gary Hillberg brings together cinematic depictions of crisis, disaster, and apocalypse. ⁠

On display in the Screening Room at Brisbane's Institute of Modern Art, the work features a pulsing soundtrack partly appropriated from 2003’s 'The Matrix Reloaded', illustrating the ubiquity of fantasies about our planet’s demise on film. ⁠

'Doomed' shows that speculations of societal and planetary fragility are hardly new, and that through their repetition, these events gradually inure themselves to our minds, even becoming banal. ⁠

However, this overfamiliarity is far from innocuous—especially in a present when such scenes are increasingly crossing over from fantasy to reality.⁠

See 'On Fire: Climate and Crisis' until this Saturday 20 March.

Brook Andrew at Murray Art Museum Albury

Brook Andrew at Murray Art Museum Albury


We are delighted to share images of 'GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY', a new commission by Brook Andrew, currently on view at Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA). This installation premiers as part of 'DIWIL', an exhibition featuring significant works by Brook Andrew from the last decade.

The Wiradjuri word ‘diwil’ translates to 'collection' and reflects on the artist’s relationship with objects, history, and Country. 'GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY' is a wall drawing and neon installation that fully surrounds audiences in the museum’s collection galleries. The work is part of a continually evolving approach to wall drawing and museum intervention, and prominently includes language, with the words 'NGAJUU NGAAY – I SEE' making the gallery a place of inspection, reckoning and exchange.

Within the space created by 'GARRU NGAJUU NGAAY', key works from the last decade amplify the artist’s approach to harnessing alternative narratives to explore the legacies of colonisation and modernism.

View Andrew's exhibition at MAMA until 5 September 2021.

Kirtika Kain's exhibition 'Lustration' at Firstdraft

Kirtika Kain's exhibition 'Lustration' at Firstdraft


Kirtika Kain's exhibition 'Lustration' is currently on view at Firstdraft, Sydney.

Lustration (from Latin lustratio, “purification by sacrifice”), features a large-scale silkscreened drawing developed on site over a week-long period.

The work is influenced by methods of the Situationist International group, who created expanded three dimensional drawings that were methodically planned yet spontaneously executed. The activist group would cut and collage city maps, retaining sites of unconscious intensity and link them with red arrows to create new blueprints of urban spaces.

Firstdraft is the final pitstop of Art Month's East Sydney Art At Night Walking Tour. The event will take place this Saturday 13 March from 7-9pm at Firstdraft in Woolloomooloo.

Bill Henson in Artist Profile

Bill Henson in Artist Profile


"Since his first solo show at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1975, Bill Henson has been captivated at the liminal, the evasive, and the in-between. Traversing cool grey zones including adolescence and suburbia, his photographic images offer neither conclusions nor condolences to audiences who sense a mystery at work beneath their beautiful surfaces."

We are thrilled that Bill Henson features on the March issue of Artist Profile.

Erin McFadyen’s essay on Henson prepares us for his new solo exhibition which, using his archives, reconsiders his work as a younger artist, the passage of his life and works over time. The formal devices in Henson’s work, whether landscape, portrait or group of figures – transient paths, gaps and connections – touch our emotions and invite us to contemplate the power of love and death without fear.

Bill Henson's solo exhibition at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery opens tomorrow, 5 March.

'Every Heart Sings' - A Children's Book by Patricia Piccinini

'Every Heart Sings' - A Children's Book by Patricia Piccinini


"Remember to look up. Among the amazing creatures that fill the sky, one day you might just see a skywhale too..."

Published by the National Gallery of Australia, 'Every Heart Sings' is Patricia Piccinini's first children’s book.

“I grew up in Canberra and I first realised I wanted to be an artist when I visited the National Gallery of Australia as a teenager. I now live and work in Melbourne and, as an artist, I am interested in what it means to be alive in the present day. I hope to create a world somewhere between the one we know and one that is almost upon us, and to focus on the emotional lives of the new creatures that might emerge. I am interested in our relationships with them and with nature. I work with a studio of people to help make my work, starting with my drawings and ending up with a sculpture, or a video or even a hot air balloon. 'Skywhalepapa' 2020 is a work that continues my relationship with the people of Canberra that began with the 'Skywhale' in 2013. Together they form a skywhale family that will take to the air over Canberra and go on to explore the country and the world. 'Every Heart Sings' is a project that talks about nature, family, evolution, care and wonder. They float into our lives to make us smile and think.”

Brook Andrew at 'Space YZ'

Brook Andrew at 'Space YZ'


In times of alarmingly diminishing art school options in the tertiary and higher education systems, 'Space YZ', commissioned by Campbelltown Arts Centre and curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham, draws inspiration from the visual arts legacy of Western Sydney University.⁠

From the first graduating class in 1986 to the final cohort as the curtain closed in 2009, the art school was a pioneering hub for experimentation and risk-taking across a broad variety of media.⁠

Staged twelve years since the closure of the art school, Space YZ presents significant early works created by Brook Andrew and 87 other Visual Arts and Electronic Arts alumni during their undergraduate studies or within two years of graduation.⁠

‘Space YZ’ references the university gallery established on campus in 1992. A transitional space, the gallery was literally an oversized corridor connecting the Z Block art studios to the rest of the university on the Kingswood side of the Penrith campus. Less a destination than an idling walkway, Space YZ speaks to the metaphors of transition and connection that abound at art school; where ideologies are challenged and unique artistic identities forged.⁠

Daniel Boyd in his exhibition 'Pediment/Impediment'

Daniel Boyd in his exhibition 'Pediment/Impediment'


In his exhibition 'Pediment/Impediment', Daniel Boyd has re-imagined sculptural reliefs from our collection of casts. This project challenges Enlightenment ideas, using dappled light to reveal and shadow these works from the Classical world.

If you haven’t been following, #ConnectingCollections is an ongoing series connecting museums worldwide and this month’s theme is 19th and early 20th century casts. Plaster casts and replicas of original artefacts, from small cuneiform tablets to monumental relief panels, were popular at this time for both study and display. The Nicholson amassed a collection of some 250 casts between 1890 and 1941. While many were given away in the 1960s to schools and communities across Sydney, around 80 small and large casts remain in the collection.

The casts displayed in 'Pediment/Impediment' include two reliefs from the Temple of Apollo at Bassae (NM2008.6.3-4), two reliefs from the Siphnian Treasury at Delphi (NM2008.5, NM2008.37) and a cast of relief XXXI of the Parthenon Frieze (NM2018.129). Central to the room is the plaster model of the Acropolis made by the German sculptor Henrich Walger circa 1895 (NM2008.4).

Exhibition runs until June 2021.⁠

Bill Henson's 'Sic Transit' now available to purchase


We are delighted to announce the release of Bill Henson's 'Sic Transit' - a sumptuous 164 page hard cover book, with uncoated dust jacket, housed in a slipcase. ⁠

Published by Stanley Barker Books, Bill Henson’s 'Sic Transit' presents the panorama of a world shadowed by the images and memories of the past. Two boys wrestle like an act of love, an act of wonder. A face that could be the face of a girl or boy looms in the bewilderment of passion or preoccupation. Bodies tussle and are at peace. There is an effortless knowledge of the body as window of the soul but also a sense of the inscrutable, of that which is beyond time, though at every point time is echoed in immemorial gesture as an adolescent looks at his foot, as a temple beckons and glows in soft light, as a remembrance of other and older ways of imagining. This is an art of shadows and whispers and things known far off. It is a set of images haunted by the spectres of the past even as it uses the grammar of the body finding its way in darkness and touches of light. ⁠

It is an art full of the distanced golden glow of the classical and especially the Roman past which also pays homage to the sublimity of Rembrandt’s “Prodigal Son”and the depth of compassion it radiates. But in this sequence of photographs Henson reveals the world of ways in which history is shaded and comes to fade. And so it passes: Henson captures the glory of the world of images as it does. It also honors the ways in which every novice’s discovery traces an ancient ritual and notates an enduring dream. - Peter Craven⁠

Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro in 'You Are Here'

Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro in 'You Are Here'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present new works by Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro in 'You Are Here'.


"Kites and planes come from the same family but the philosophy behind flying kites and planes are quite different. A kite is a flying object that inspires daydreams while locating you within a specific time and place. Like a pin stuck in a map, the tethered kite marks us within the here and now. Conversely, an airplane makes the yearning to be somewhere else completely, a possible reality.


We have reversed the evolution of manned flight by taking Australian Air Force surplus plane parts and with a bit of paint and string, turned them into Japanese kites. We have used traditional Japanese kite designs because a) they look really awesome and b) Japanese kites are not representative of a culturally hermetic system: Chinese Buddhist missionaries introduced kites to Japan during the Nara period (710-794 AD).


We have in turn appropriated Japanese kite designs to create a body of work that is indicative of our own personal experience of COVID-times. The cessation of International flight cancelled our planned artist residency in Niigata. This residency was to be a period of research looking into the giant kite flying community of Shirone. Therefore 2020 was spent in our studio, daydreaming about kites. This body of work is indicative of the Iso-Age, a time when we have surfeit of global knowledge at our fingertips but we are literally grounded in one place." — Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, 2020

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present a cross-generational exhibition, 'A Painting Show' featuring new works by three of Australia’s most important painters working today.

All three artists are expressive, gestural and considered in their mark making - masterful colourists conjuring up vivid, fantastical realms, yet their unique styles have paved their way as distinct voices within the Australian and international art world.

Paintings by Tom Polo, Gareth Sansom and Jenny Watson are exhibited within the unique context of the last month of 2020 where the fibres of society are strained. Within a social fabric of distanced inter-personal relationships, disconnection and technological interfaces dominating modes of communication, painting allows us to take space and stand still.

Exhibition: Gary Carsley 'ARBOUR ARDOUR'


OPEN NOW: Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present new works by Gary Carsley in 'ARBOUR ARDOUR'. ⁠

'ARBOUR ARDOUR' is the most recent in a series of room-based flourishes by Gary Carsley that contest among other things: the increasing correspondence between spectacle and material privilege in both art and life and the collapse of historical memory, with all of its attendant intended and unintended consequences. In these immersive environments, laboriousness can be best understood as a calculated expression of queer disruption; where perversely, manuality is a highly refined and conceptual act. ⁠

Positioned within a multi-perspectival pergola elaborated by Architect Renjie Teoh around 3 IKEA PAX closets and a suite of geometrically shaped Draguerreotypes1 positioned by the artist as a series of outward looking windows and doors, 'ARBOUR ARDOUR' is more than the sum of its parts. Liminal and latently lavender, this exhibition continues the artist’s engagement with the garden as a trans-cultural, temporally fluid stage where theory becomes practice.⁠

Visit the gallery today until 6pm.⁠

NOW OPEN: Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present new works by Linda Marrinon in 'Scene at Edfu and other sculptures'. Emerging in the 1980's, Marrinon's work is informed by an interest in feminism, architecture and art history. ⁠

Often displaying a keen sense of humour, her modestly scaled figures and busts draw on techniques associated with 19th century figurative sculpture. Marrinon's statuaries and plaster tableaux portray historical figures and archetypes drawn from the fathomless archive of our times. Considering the span of Marrinon's subject matter, time is a condition with which the sculptor freely plays.⁠

Visit Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery until 6pm.⁠

Dale Frank in the NGA


"As a kid I had Robert Rauschenberg images pinned to my bedroom walls – his goat and tyre. At the age of 14 or 15, I saw a series of paintings by Robert Ryman in an American exhibition at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Ryman’s work built upon my emphatic love for Rothko. Equally, at the same time or shortly after, I came across Vito Acconci and Paul Thek. Overlaying all this was the view of artists in movies." - Dale Frank⁠

Andrew speaks to ABC Arts guest host Rosa Ellen about what drives him and what he set out to do as the first Indigenous artistic director of the Biennale of Sydney, which he renamed NIRIN. His latest exhibition, 'This Year', is currently on view at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.⁠

The Long Run #3: John Wolseley on revealing landscapes for 60 years

The Long Run #3: John Wolseley on revealing landscapes for 60 years


For over 60 years John Wolseley has been visiting, capturing and sharing his experience of landscapes. But what does it mean to create and innovate over six decades? And what can Wolseley teach us about the life-stages of an artist?⁠

Art Guide Australia’s newest podcast series 'The Long Run' considers this question with artists who have had careers spanning 60 years, each reflecting on their art and lives.⁠

In this third episode Wolseley, one of Australia’s most well-known landscape painters and printmakers, speaks to us from his home in regional Victoria. Moving to Australia from England in 1976, he’s known for immersing himself in an environment before painting it, capturing landscapes ranging from the mountains in Tasmania, to wetlands and rivers, to the floodplains of Arnhem land. Known as a great storyteller, Wolseley captures worlds that invite engagement with nature and the environment.⁠

Exhibition: Brook Andrew | 'This Year'

Exhibition: Brook Andrew | 'This Year'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is pleased to present new works by Brook Andrew in 'This Year'.

This immersive exhibition originates from a series of collages Andrew made recently from an extensive archive in his Melbourne studio. In frantic actions of cutting and pasting, the artist combines disparate elements of printed matter, from contemporary newspaper headlines, fashion magazines and mid-century comic books to historical anthropological texts and an original edition of engravings from the complete works of British satirist William Hogarth (c. 1860).

The juxtaposition of contemporary sources with the historical, and the popular with the academic, reveals the ways in which the media and visual culture continue to nurture obsessions with capital, race and catastrophe and influence modes of being that sway from hope and joy to ignorance and despair.

'Chromatopia', an exploration of how and why artists use colour, was inspired by a rarely seen work acquired more than half a century ago. 'Harvest', painted by Dame Laura Knight on the cusp of the Second World War, is a tonic for our times and the inspiration behind this spectral journey.⁠

Julie Rrap has been preoccupied with the female body since the 1980s, with images that challenged the male gaze and set her on a course to become a major figure in Australian feminist art. So what is her take on the changing politics of the body happening in visual art right now, and how does she reflect on her formative years?⁠

Rrap recently spoke with Namila Benson from ABC's 'The Art Show' about her creative journey around the female form. ⁠

New Viewing Room - 'The Power of Language!'

New Viewing Room - 'The Power of Language!'


We are delighted to present the fourth instalment of our Online Viewing Room Series - The Power of Language!

Our lives are shaped by language: the social media we engage with, the news we read, and the signs we follow, all dictate how we connect and experience the world. Text and language have long been a powerful vehicle in the artistic expression of leading conceptual artists since the 1960s, namely Ed Ruscha, Jenny Holzer, John Baldessari, and Lawrence Weiner. In this time of stillness, we seek more than ever before to enrich our lives with text and visuals that fire the imagination, rouse visual pleasure, and inspire intellectual excitement.⁠

From anagrammatic wordplay to esoteric quotations, and from ‘the subtext of existence’ to draconian proscriptions on the Untouchables, these poignant text-based works are a celebration of our artists who harness the immediate and transformative power of language in the visual realm.⁠

Julie Rrap in ‘Shadow Catchers’ at the AGNSW

Julie Rrap in ‘Shadow Catchers’ at the AGNSW


Body double (2007), a work by Julie Rrap, is the centrepiece of Shadow Catchers at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Rrap has worked with notions of the double in sculpture, video and photography since the early 1980s. Two silicon rubber casts of the artist’s body lie corpse-like on a stage, one face down and one face up. A ghost-like figure of a man or a woman is projected onto the bodies. The projection of the body rolls across the stage from one figure to the other, appearing to resuscitate the silicon forms.

Drawing on the Gallery’s collection, including the work of more than 57 artists and recent acquisitions on display for the first time, ‘Shadow catchers’ considers how the shadow, along with the mirror and the body double, have been employed and examined by photographers since the invention of the medium. Photographs can provide doubles and emotional surrogates on which to affix our attachment – but what kind of doubles and what kind of intimacy?” 

Shadow Catchers has been extended until 2021.

‘DESTINY’ at the NGV


"Despite or perhaps because of their apolitical-seeming, bordering-on-superficial visual content – blak dollies and blacker comedy are frequent tools – the works of Destiny Deacon are intensely political. They speak strongly of dispossession, displacement, death and destruction, of the rape and torture of Indigenous women…" ⁠

This is an edited excerpt of Claire Coleman's essay commissioned for and published in the catalogue to accompany the (temporarily closed) exhibition ‘DESTINY’, at the NGV in Melbourne until 31 January 2021.⁠

Daniel Boyd in Art Collector Magazine

Daniel Boyd in Art Collector Magazine


"There is a tendency in Australian art history to segregate the art of Aboriginal people from the broader field of Australian art. Separatist terms such as "Aboriginal Art", "Urban Aboriginal Artist" or even "Folk art" reflect an ongoing colonial hierarchy that contemplates Indigenous communities and their culture as distinct from the concerns and agendas of Australia today. To conceive of Australian art and Aboriginal art as separate streams of practice reflects a misunderstanding of the independence of Australian culture.⁠

Daniel Boyd is a testament to an expanding field of artists working to create a more self-aware set of cultural relations in Australia that celebrates the nuance, potency and urgency of Indigenous practitioners and their histories."⁠

This month's issue of Art Collector Magazine features Daniel Boyd in a text written by Michael Do. 'INTO FOCUS' includes a discussion around his current exhibition 'AND THE HORIZON SWALLOWED THE TORTOISE' open at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.⁠

Exhibition: Daniel Boyd 'AND THE HORIZON SWALLOWED THE TORTOISE'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present new works by Daniel Boyd in 'AND THE HORIZON SWALLOWED THE TORTOISE' which opens on Wednesday 15 July.⁠

This poignant exhibition continues the artist's trajectory by uniting three highly personal subject matters: Greek mythology, familial ties to the land, and symbolism of the Australian native bush stone-curlew in Aboriginal cultures. ⁠

This pertinent new body of work emerges from the unique conditions of lockdown, where times of crisis give gravitas to artists like Boyd, who express histories of oppression and resistance. In creating spaces for questions and dialogue in art, Boyd places the Aboriginal experience closer towards the center of contemporary Australian discourse, and gives voices to people who are exiled, marginalised or displaced.⁠

In David Noonan's collages on film and tapestry, collected images drawn from a vast array of sources are superimposed, overlapped, cut up, cut out, dis-placed and re-placed within the picture plane, as if props on a set or actors in a scene.

Curator Leigh Robb speaks on David Noonan's works as part of the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Art: 'Monster Theatres'... "We can see a stage that is populated by a number of figures. They all appear to be in a process of waking up and it's almost like a moment in a zombie film."

National Museum of African American History and Culture showing Isaac Julien's 'Lessons of the Hour' (2019)

National Museum of African American History and Culture showing Isaac Julien's 'Lessons of the Hour' (2019)


The National Museum of African American History and Culture is revisiting a video tour of its exhibition Slavery and Freedom to celebrate Juneteenth, the annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the US that has long been celebrated among the African American community but still remains largely unknown to the wider public.

The founding director, Lonnie Bunch, highlights slavery-related objects that tell stories of resilience and survival like freedom papers, shackles for children and identification buttons worn by slaves. “The most important factors that have shaped African American culture have been the impact of institutional slavery and the desire for people to be free,” Bunch says. “Slavery shaped everything in America, from farm policy to education to politics.”

New York’s Metro Pictures Gallery is streaming Isaac Julien’s Lessons of the Hour (2019) this weekend to mark Juneteenth. The film tells the story of the same Frederick Douglass noted above, who self-emancipated as a young man and became one of the foremost abolitionists and civil rights campaigners, both in the US and internationally. He was also was a strong believer in the social power of the then burgeoning technology of photography; he is sometimes cited as the most photographed American of the 19th century, ahead of Abraham Lincoln. 

Lessons of the Hour revolves around Douglass’s famed speeches and is named after the final major speech that he gave in Washington, DC, where he died in 1895. This film is a single-screen version of Julien’s ten-screen installation of the same name and was filmed in Washington, DC, Scotland and at London’s Royal Academy of Arts. The film will be available to stream on the gallery’s Vimeo page from Friday at 12pm EST until midnight on Sunday.

Viewing Room: 'Caroline Rothwell: Arrangements'

Viewing Room: 'Caroline Rothwell: Arrangements'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to present 'Caroline Rothwell: Arrangements' as the fourth instalment of our Viewing Room Series.

It is with the spirit of discovery we view the sculptures by Rothwell in 'Arrangements', embodying the weird and wonderful through the mindset of exploration and detailed research into botanical history. 

Rothwell’s work is the meeting point of the artificial and natural, the historical and contemporary. She holds space for the most beautiful of objects, hybrid species that challenge us to question past narratives and seek new positions of enquiry. At first glance, they are contemporary manifestations of exquisite botanical specimens, perhaps once immaculately rendered as drawings. On closer look, uncomfortable and disconcerting juxtapositions emerge: glossy tongues entwine biomorphic beings; industrial metal pipes meet floral beauties; QR codes are delicately held like prized, rare fauna in a bejewelled hand.

Isaac Julian's 'Lessons of the Hour' at McEvoy Foundation for the Arts

Isaac Julian's 'Lessons of the Hour' at McEvoy Foundation for the Arts


Lessons of the Hour, a multi-channel film installation and photography exhibition, dramatises key moments in the life of Frederick Douglass.

Lessons of the Hour is a ten-screen film installation and exhibition of related photography by Isaac Julien that offers an immersive, poetic meditation on the life and times of Frederick Douglass. The freed slave, abolitionist, and statesman (who was also the most photographed man of the nineteenth-century), helped shape the national conversation around race and representation for generations.

Incorporating excerpts from Douglass’ most arresting speeches and dramatizations of his private and public milieus, the work is a contemplative journey into Douglass’ zeitgeist that unfolds through multiple perspectives presented simultaneously on different screens. Douglass’ oratory and writings on topics ranging from slavery to photography suggest ways in which his lifelong advocacy of freedom and equality may be reexamined through a contemporary lens.

Lessons of the Hour is presented with a selection of works from the McEvoy Family Collection, a curated video program in the McEvoy Arts Screening Room, and a calendar of public programs to be announced.

"The figures or the characters in these works were almost like parts of bodies that were reliant upon another. In this case, we've got a thigh and a calf and they exist as almost two characters of the same being. So, I've been thinking about personas or ideas of intimacy - forced intimacy... this idea that the calf and the thigh are really connected and in order to function they need to work together."

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery's Tom Polo discusses his work 'family feud (calf vs thigh)', currently in the Stockroom at Roslyn Oxley9, with Art Collector's Tai Mitsuji.

New Viewing Room - Faraway, So Close!

New Viewing Room - Faraway, So Close!


We are delighted to present the third instalment of our Online Viewing Room Series - 'Faraway, So Close!'

Inspired by the title of a Wim Wenders film, 'Faraway, So Close!' 1993, this selection of artworks brings into focus the separateness of living and considers the rewriting of intimacy in our digital age; inviting us to reach out, empathise, and to dive into the feelings of our own human emotion.

Isolated in our own private worlds, individuals are coming to terms with the new ways of living. The frantic rush of life has slowed down and we take a breath, a pause, a moment to reflect and observe one another at an orbit. Through shared experiences we are together - so close, yet so far away - existing in a world where intimacy and the power of the human touch have been altered.

Mikala Dwyer on ABC's 'The Mix'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery's Mikala Dwyer was featured on a recent episode of ABC's 'The Mix' which focuses on the (currently closed) 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Monster Theatres.

When discussing her prophetic sick bay that sits at the very front of the exhibition, Dwyer said:

"Its all about illness, and wellness, and viruses, and contamination, and quarantine. It was something I was thinking about a year ago and now it is our life at the moment."

To watch the full 29-minute episode, visit ABC's iView or click the link. You can listen to Dwyer from 1 min 57 secs.

Del Kathryn Barton to start Puff, the Magic Dragon film 'by end of year'

Del Kathryn Barton to start Puff, the Magic Dragon film 'by end of year'


We are delighted to announce that our much loved Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery artist, Del Kathryn Barton, will be shooting a feature film inspired by 'Puff, the Magic Dragon', scheduled to start shooting before the end of the year.

'Puff' is inspired by her massive painting 'sing blood-wings sing', a five-panel, 12-metre wide work unveiled in 2017 as part of her 'The Highway is a Disco' show at the National Gallery of Victoria.

That painting was, in turn, inspired by Peter, Paul and Mary's 1963 song 'Puff, the Magic Dragon', about the friendship between a little boy and a dragon and the dragon's retreat into isolation when the boy stops believing in him.

But the "hybrid" film, featuring stop-animation, live action and visual effects, is far from a kids' picture, despite having a yet-to-be-cast 12-year-old as its lead. It is, rather, "a fairytale for adults," Barton said.

Isaac Julien’s Political Memory

Isaac Julien’s Political Memory


On Wednesday, April 22, the Neuberger Museum of Art will virtually host filmmaker and installation artist Isaac Julien in conversation with Louise Yelin, co-curator of Julien’s exhibition 'Western Union: Small Boats' (2007). 

The three-screen film installation, which opened in February (and is currently closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic), reflects Julien’s longstanding engagement with the legacies of slavery and colonialism and a compositional approach that incorporates narrative collage across large-scale, multi-screen projections. As Yelin told me when I visited the Neuberger in February, Julien wants to “create a style for political remembering.”

Online Exhibition: Dale Frank | 'Shaun taught piano'

Online Exhibition: Dale Frank | 'Shaun taught piano'


Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is thrilled to present new works by Dale Frank in Shaun taught piano for our first online exhibition.

With the new addition of powdered pigments, there is a watercolour-like translucency to these dazzling new works that make them shimmer in ethereality, like floating cosmos, lost in the dream of a summer’s day. At times with a glaring vibrancy, they draw us in. They are addictive: swirling layers that seem to capture eternity and defeat time.

With their brilliantly reflective surfaces, the works become both the observed and the observer. Frank keeps us at a distance conceptually, gifting us with his seductive outer world which becomes us, the viewer and the world we have stepped into. Frank’s explorations offer up a considered discourse into the history of painting, questioning both the artist's and the viewer's role while holding space for this discourse, just like his paintings, to change and evolve over time.

Mikala Dwyer and David Noonan feature in the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Art: 'Monster Theatres'

Mikala Dwyer and David Noonan feature in the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Art: 'Monster Theatres'


In 2020, the Adelaide Biennial celebrates a 30-year milestone as the nation’s longest-running curated survey of contemporary Australian art. Since 1990, the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art has created career-defining opportunities for more than 350 artists and presented to close to one million visitors .

Titled Monster Theatres, the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art invites artists to make visible the monsters of our time. Curator Leigh Robb says ‘Monsters ask us to interrogate our relationships with each other, the environment and technology. They force us to question our empathy towards difference across race, gender, sexuality and spirituality'.

Curator Leigh Robb says 'Monster Theatres proposes an arena of speculation, a circus of the unorthodox and the absurd, a shadow play between truth and fiction. The title is inspired by a group of provocative Australian artists. Their urgent works of art are warnings made manifest. These theatres are theirs.’

Nyapanyapa Yunupingu 'The Little Things'

Nyapanyapa Yunupingu 'The Little Things'


OPENING NEXT WEEK: Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to welcome the new year with a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new works by Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. ⁠

This is the artist's first exhibition following her popularly and critically acclaimed solo show in 2020, 'the moment eternal' at Darwin's Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT). Featuring more than 60 of Yunupingu's works, this major presentation is the first time MAGNT has held a solo exhibition for an Aboriginal Australian artist.⁠

Acclaimed for her extraordinary gift of mark making and storytelling, Yunupingu is one of the most celebrated and influential Aboriginal Australian artists. Her art practice remains independent of bark painting traditions that she inherited from the Yirrkala region/Yolgnu people of Arnhem Land where she lives. Her figurative and abstract works unleash a unique set of personal narrative paintings revolving around her own experiences.⁠

Exhibition opens Thursday, 28 January.

Kirtika Kain 'Stone Idols' at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery

Kirtika Kain 'Stone Idols' at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery


OPENING NEXT WEEK: Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery is delighted to welcome the new year with a highly anticipated solo exhibition of new works by Kirtika Kain.⁠

'Stone Idols' features a large-scale material painting and a series of printed silkscreen works. Created during the lockdown, the exhibition is Kain’s visual response to 'The Prisons We Broke', one of the first Dalit feminist autobiographies. Using a rich array of religious materials, Kain translates the visceral language and imagines millennia of stigmatisation and suppression faced by India’s lower castes. ⁠

Her work interrogates the idolisation of deities and beliefs that continue to bind her community to servitude. This exhibition reflects the artist’s ongoing interest in shedding light to neglected histories, recasting the historical representation of her community and contributing to the dearth of surviving Dalit art and material culture.⁠

Exhibition opens Thursday, 28 January.

Brook Andrew Reflects on 'This Year' with Ocula


For over 25 years, Brook Andrew has developed an extensive archive of vernacular objects and printed matter in his Melbourne studio, which he draws together in collages, sculptures, and museum interventions as a means of shedding light on neglected narratives.


These archives have been collected from different places, whether from contemporaries like Marcia Langton, whose collection of past editions of The Saturday Paper Andrew took in; gathered from museums during residencies, such as the 1951 book Orixás by Pierre Verger, which the library of the Musée d'ethnographie de Genève was going to throw out, or rare postcards purchased from international auction houses.

Issac Julien Screening, 'Looking For Langston', Metrograph, New York

Issac Julien Screening, 'Looking For Langston', Metrograph, New York


Looking for Langston fuses archival newsreel footage of 1920s Harlem with original scripted scenes shot in lush black-and-white, in order not only to recreate the atmosphere of the Harlem Renaissance as it exists in the popular imagination, but to specifically highlight the essential role of Black queer identity in that artistic and social movement. The film draws from the works of Langston Hughes (played by Ben Ellison) and James Baldwin, among others, and provocatively imagines the speakeasies of the period as havens for the free expression of Black gay culture and desire.

Screening co-presented with Performa

A Constructed World's Pheno TV Episode 1 will be launched today

A Constructed World's Pheno TV Episode 1 will be launched today


Pheno TV Episode 1 will be launched today at 6pm AEST produced by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery's A Constructed World in collaboration with Creative Yuk. ⁠
Pheno is a disembodied voice in a real body. Philosophical texts speak through him. He loves experts, liking things to be clear even if he doesn't understand. In a world that is closed but always on, in a here-and-now that most of us don't care for, he's always willing to incorporate the thoughts and actions of others and to be used and utilised to see us as together!⁠
Pheno Tv is an independent program that aligns with momentary relief from fear and panic. With invited guests, interviewees, experts, friends and acquaintances the time is found to bring to light subjects such as the phenomenology of rear, cooking pasts, the disembodied voice, the real eroticised body and thoughts of erasure. Not that we can necessarily do much about the absurdity of the present, we can at least make a representation that inlcudes us in with a sense of belongingness so that we know we are not alone.⁠
