    Michelle Ussher has been curated into The Green Ray at Wilkinson Gallery, London; an exhibition that takes its starting point from French new wave director Eric Rohmer’s 1986 film Le Rayon vert (The Green Ray). Rohmer’s film connects thematically with Jules Verne’s 1882 novel by the same name, and both film and book deal with a search for the scientific phenomenon of a rare green flash at sunset, which Verne interprets as revealing our thoughts and those of others ‘as if by magic’.

    Curated by Andrew Hunt, this group exhibition, which takes place over Wilkinson’s two galleries, presents a wide variety of material that deals with contemporary subjects of literature, cinema, painting, writing and the post-digital sublime.

    Opening on February 27 the exhibition runs until 10 April.

    Daniel Boyd’s first solo exhibition in his home state’s capital, Brisbane, will open this February at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA). Exhibited in the IMA’s new exhibition space, 'The Green Room', an endeavour that aims to have connection to the region, this exhibition will focus on Boyd’s paintings that feature “maps”. These maps act as keys for unlocking land, sea, sky, and tracing colonial stories, from being representative of a boatman’s tale that evokes the dichotomy of this life and the next, to the utilitarian representation of ocean currents and swells.

    Opening on 20 February the exhibition runs until 24 March.
