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.

Bill Henson's Garden
As well as being an internationally renowned photographer, Bill Henson is also a passionate gardener. His home and photography studio are embraced by a lush and layered wilderness. It’s hard to know where the garden begins and ends, and that’s the way he likes it.
ABC Radio National goes inside Henson's garden in Melbourne's inner north which was once a concrete car park but now, around raked gravel, are huge trees, palms and a few family favourites.

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.

Curator Leigh Robb on David Noonan - 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Art
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."
Callum Morton in AGNSW's 'Under the Stars'
As Callum Morton's exhibition 'View from a Bridge' fills Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, his works 'Screen #4 Chargrilled' (2006) and 'Screen #7 Here and There' (2006) are displayed in the recently reopened 'Shadow Catchers' at the AGNSW.
Repost from Michael Brand, AGNSW Director: "Callum Morton’s miniature drive-in cinema from 2006 on the left with its screen burnt black (Screen #4 Chargrilled). It’s “malfunctioning” sister structure is on the right (Screen #7 Here and there) with Soda_Jerk’s After the Rainbow in between, reimagining the twister in The Wizard of Oz as a time machine hurtling Judy Garland’s Dorothy into a bleak future."
Callum Morton has been represented by Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery since 1998.

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'
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.
Rosalie Gascoigne's Found Landscapes
Rosalie Gascoigne captured the Australian landscape by assembling objects she found within it, finding beauty in weathered discarded road signs and farming equipment. Her distinct representations of Australia and her contribution to art gained her an Order of Australia in 1994. Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery has been representing Gascoigne since 1989 and her estate since 1999.
ABC's archive-based series 'The Rewind' takes us back to 1991, as ABC's Art Australia visits Gascoigne in her home. To watch the clip, click the link.
Callum Morton in conversation with Art Collector's Edward Colless
"We are living in end times... I guess we always are. It is particularly horrible at the moment. We talk about the end of all sorts of things - capitalism, globalisation, the planet - so in a way the windows are looping around this idea of an end... meditating on what kind of end it will be." u2060

View from a Bridge will feature three wall sculptures that replicate the window frames on the facade of the Sirius Building, located in The Rocks, Sydney. In adding a theatrical element to the work, Morton has inserted a pulsating light into each sculpture that changes colour to correspond to the audio track of the computerised voice of Siri.

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.
Tom Polo in conversation with Art Collector's Tai Mitsuji
"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.
The 'Pull Focus' video series takes its lead from Art Collector's print magazine feature of the same name, focussing in on what makes a particular artwork WORK as a work of art.

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."

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
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'
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'
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.’
Daniel Boyd, 'VIDEO WORKS', Carriageworks, Sydney

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
