    Anna Kristensen is included in the group exhibition The Bellowing Echoes, at Gertrude Contemporary, Melbourne. This show features work by Jess Johnson, Anna Kristensen, Tessa Zettel and Karl Khoe, The Slow Art Collective and Marcin Wojcik.

    Curated by Marcel Cooper and Bronwyn Bailey-Charteris, The Bellowing Echoes takes the essence of a Melbourne story and uses it as a provocation and as a point of exchange with artists who value the personal, the political and the relational.

 As impetus for the exhibition is the story of George Arden, who in 1838 longs for community. As the colony of Port Phillip emerges, Arden rises and falls in his quest to politicise and reflect upon his new environment. Cooper and Bailey-Charteris employ this avatar of the 1800s as a guide through a temporal wanderlust of immersive installation and process orientated works.

    This project forms part of the 2012 Next Wave Festival and Gertrude Contemporary’s Emerging Curators Program.

    Simon Denny has been included in the group exhibition Remote Control at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London.

    Remote Control includes a range of work by artists who explore the way television shapes contemporary culture, and also highlights a number of contemporaries who are responding to the mediums digital convergence. Coinciding with the digital switchover in the UK, the exhibition marks the end of analogue broadcasting—a milestone in the evolution of television.

    The exhibition includes significant works that examine how television has changed the way artists engage with material and form, and how adopting techniques of television broadcasting has contributed to the deconstruction of traditional definitions of art. Exploring the role of television in the public sphere, many of the works presented in the exhibition challenge themes of gender, race, propaganda, identity, pop imagery and consumerism.

    Daniel Boyd will be included in the exhibition One caption hides another at Bétonsalon in Paris.

    One caption hides another aims to expand the field countering official history by taking as a departure point a key topic in current museological debates, that of anthropological restitution. Inspired by the recent repatriation of the Maori warrior head from the Museum of Rouen to its ancestral home, New Zealand, this exhibition and series of events propose an exploration into the ethical, scientific, political and legal issues arising from cases of restitution.

    Addressing the topics of collective memory and heritage, One caption hides another creates a meeting point for artworks, ethnographic and juridical documents, films and museographic projects. Documenting real situations, making use of fiction or radicalising one’s relation to heritage, the artists, researchers and platforms invited in this project are all engaged in reflexive endeavours concerning the museological object and challenging ethnographic representation.

    Other artists in the show include: Agency, Peggy Buth, Jimmie Durham, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Camille Henrot, Patrizio di Massimo, Uriel Orlow, Francis Upritchard, Françoise Vergès (Maison des Civilisations et de l’Unité Réunionnaise) and Susan Vogel.
