    Michael Staniak and Jonny Niesche are currently included in the exhibition 'Flat Earth Society' at Cement Fondu, which closes this Sunday 8 December.

    The exhibition features ​artists working at the intersection of abstraction and screen-based culture. From the flat plane of canvas to the flat-screens of daily life, the artists consider how technology has shifted the possibilities of painting and infused the way we experience and frame our realities.

    Daniel Boyd and British architect David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates have been selected to design a major new public square and plaza building and artwork on George Street in Sydney’s CBD.

    ​Boyd's contribution will be a suspended artwork sitting 20 metres above the ground. The steel canopy supported by a single column will stretch out from the building and shield the 800-square-metre open space on the site of the St George Bank tower. Made from perforated steel, the structure will filter dappled light through circular openings of varying size, animating the space with a moving pattern that reflects the night sky.

    ​“It provides a space of contemplation and diversity, a space to extend knowledge of experience – a multiplicity of experiences and narratives, currently extending back 60,000 years through the connection of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. Acknowledging that we can never fully comprehend our past or future is the first step in reconciling differences of perception.” - Daniel Boyd

    Eugenia Lim is featured in an article by Neha Kale, for the current issue of VAULT.

    ​​"Eugenia Lim says that she's always had a 'motley approach to creativity'. Growing up in Melbourne, the interdisciplinary artist – whose output includes video, installation, performance and publishing – was less interested in art history than she was in making zines with her best friend. The medium's DIY ethos and defiant critique of power structures set the stage for an artistic practice that playfully skewers everything from national identity and spatial politics to the way the gig economy holds workers hostage." – Neha Kale

    Zac Langdon-Pole has been interviewed by Tendai John Mutambu for Ocula, discussing the travel and research he conducted over the past year as a result of winning the BMW Art Journey Prize in 2018.

    ​"Interpolation is inserting something of a dissimilar nature into something else. 'What belongs where?' is a question that often underpins my work and operates on multiple levels within each project I undertake. Sometimes it is literally expressed by bringing together specific objects or texts that might not usually belong together. Other times it is a more systemic question, with the work addressing how classification systems underpin how we relate to the world."

    Steaphan Paton's exhibition 'Nullius in Verba', shown at STATION | Melbourne earlier this year, has been reviewed by Helen Hughes in the current issue of Art Forum.

    ​"Whether applied to shields, to bodies as part of a ceremony, or to tree trunks, these designs have been passed down by Paton's ancestors over thousands of years, directly binding him to both kin and Country (the holistic conception of place, including its physical, spiritual, and political dimensions). So it was not a body that we encountered in "Nullius in Verba," per se, but specifically an Indigenous Australian body—or, rather, twelve of them." – Helen Hughes
