FRACAS5 is open from Friday 12 February

 Open 11am-5pm, Fri-Sun  12-14 February

 Opening event Saturday 13 February 1-5pm


FRACAS continues Articulate’s experiment with exhibition practice begun with  FAIRISLE,  FERALFERRETFERMENT and FROLIC FREEZE  in previous years. It presents the exhibition as a changing site by re-contextualising each artwork with new works installed in the gaps left by the departure of works that were installed earlier. This weekly coming and going of artworks is a slow and progressive art-dance, each step of which is seen by coming to each of its six Friday-Sunday iterations until February 22. Opening events are each Saturday 1-5pm.

FRACAS FIVE shows the work of Maria Alvarado, Brett Anthony Moore, Isobel Johnston + Jude Crawford, Julia Hemens, Mia Domansky, Kim Bennett, Elke Wohlfahrt,  Em Ingram-Shute,  Annelies Jahn, Sarah FitzGerald, Seema Akhmetova, Jane AlexanderSteve Simpson + Paul Sutton, Vilma Bader, Sonia Vuchich. and Teong Eng Tan + Elke Wohlfahrt,

design: Kit Bylett 

FRACAS5 includes Walking together along the Edge, which will be held in Articulate's backroom. Teong Eng Tan and Elke Wohlfahrt warmly invite you to take part in ‘The Dialogue’,  based on David Bohm’s writing ‘On Dialogue’. The meaning of the word ‘dialogue’ is somewhat different from what is commonly used. ‘Dia’ means ‘through’. A dialogue can be among any number of people, not just two.  The dialogue will be a stream of meaning, flowing among and through us and between us - out of which may emerge some new understanding, something creative, new, uniting you and all together. In dialogue nobody is trying to win. Everybody wins if anybody wins.

‘The Dialogue’ will be held on Saturdays, February 13 and 20, 2021 from 3pm
