An Intro 6-8pm Friday 29 May
Open 11am - 5pm Friday - Saturday 30 May-14 June
Artists' Talks 2-4pm Saturday 13 June
FIVE YEARS ON . . . brings together seven women artists who studied together at the National Art School, graduating 3-5 years ago. Their work to date ranges across ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture and installation and explores questions ranging from the contemporary sublime to street art, the gestural act and acoustic journeys to the nature of painting. These artists will spend three weeks together at Articulate project space, using it as it was partly intended, as a residency-project space in which the location has an opportunity to influence the work produced there, and in which 'the location' is thought of broadly, including other artists, the building, the street outside, the location's history etc etc, depending on what artists decide.
The artists in FIVE YEARS ON . . . will explore their shared art school foundations and aspirations so as to open collaborative possibilities and expand individual practices. The opening event is at an early point in this process giving visitors and friends opportunities to discuss plans with the artists and make suggestions. The exhibition and artists' talks in the final weekend will provide another opportunity to see where their journey has taken them, and hear about the ups and downs of the experience.
The artists are Deborah Burdett, Mandy Burgess, Ren Fernando, Kiata Mason, Ro Murray, Elwira Titan and Susie Williams, emerging artists who studied in a range of disciplines at the National Art School, graduating 3-5 years ago. Their art practices range across ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture and installation, and explore a range of issues from the contemporary sublime to street art, the gestural act and acoustic journeys to the nature of painting.
