    ‘Borrowed Time’, a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Laith McGregor opens today at Tweed Regional Gallery, NSW. This is the second iteration of the exhibition, which originated at Caloundra Regional Gallery in March this year.

    For McGregor, time is both a subject matter for his work, as well being a tangible measure of the artist’s labour. Best known for his labour-intensive, biro portraits, in recent years his practice has expanded to include sculpture, video and print-making, and a range of subject matter. Opening Friday 5 October, the exhibition continues until 2 December.

    Consuelo Cavaniglia will be presenting a solo exhibition of new work tonight at the Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne.

    Cavaniglia’s work is determined by the selection and orchestration of lines, shadows, planes of colour and reflective surfaces. Her pieces create environments where the viewer, artwork and space they share are all intricately connected, and which challenge perceptual expectations of surface qualities through angling, layering and offsetting reflection and shade. These works bring new dimensions to our understanding of installation practice, in which sensorial and emotive responses to works are privileged and a multiplicity of experiences arise.

    The exhibition opens Thursday 4 October 5.30-7.30pm, and runs until 3 November.

    Work by Patrick Pound is on view in ‘Systematic’, an exhibition curated by Dr. Eliza Burke at the Plimsoll Gallery, School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania. Showcasing eight Australian and New Zealand artists whose works engage with the creative potential of systems to critique, re-imagine or re-invent their workings, ’Systematic’ brings together works that invite viewers to reflect on the relationships between various human and non-human systems, and concepts of organisation, inter-relatedness and connectivity.

    Open from today, 8 September, and on view until 14 October.

    Work by Tom Polo is currently on view in ‘Meditation on a Bone: Albert Tucker Beyond the Modern’ at Heide Museum of Modern Art. For this exhibition, artist and curator Glenn Barkley has mined Albert Tucker’s library and archive to explore how Tucker’s fascination with art of the past and other cultures informed his painting over the decades. The exhibition title cites a poem by A.D. Hope that Barkley found bookmarked in the library, a text reflecting on the way a handcrafted object links two people across several centuries. Central to Meditation on Bone is the motif of the mask, another culturally loaded device that can have meaning in both the past and the present. The show assembles a range of artists who use the mask literally and conceptually as a way to obscure meaning, invite nostalgia, and connect histories.

    On view until 24 February 2019.
