AUTHOR TALK: Sunburnt country: History and future of climate change in australia

Dr Joëlle Gergis, award-winning climate scientist and writer from the University of Melbourne, discusses her new book Sunburnt Country, which pieces together Australia’s climate history for the first time and uncovers a continent long vulnerable to climate extremes and variability. It shows how human activities have altered patterns that have been with us for millions of years. Sunburnt Country highlights the impact of a warming planet on Australian lifestyles and ecosystems, and the power we all have to shape future life on earth.

Dr Gergis will answer questions such as: What was Australia’s climate like before official weather records began? How do scientists use tree-rings, ice cores and tropical corals to retrace the past? What do Indigenous seasonal calendars reveal? And what do settler diaries tell us about natural climate cycles through their mention of rainfall, drought, bushfire and snowfall?

DAVID HOCKNEY: PRINTS

This not-to-be-missed exhibition draws from the National Gallery of Australia’s extensive collection of David Hockney’s works on paper, one of the largest in the world, highlighting the depth and scope of the artist’s printmaking output from 1961 to now.

Inspired by sources ranging from Pablo Picasso to Pop Art, Walt Whitman to the Brothers Grimm, and the exhilarating experience of living and working in Los Angeles for much of his career, Hockney’s prints range from using lithography and etching, photocopiers and fax machines, and – most recently — iPhones and iPads.

David Hockney: Prints is a thrilling insight into the mind of an iconic artist still searching for new ways of seeing and depiction.

On show until 27 May at the National Gallery of Australia, Orde Poynton Gallery, Level 2, Parkes Place West, Parkes.

Entry is free but see the website for more information.

ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE

Tuggeranong Arts Centre presents Another Day in Paradise, a major exhibition by artist Myuran Sukumaran.

The exhibtion will be accompanied by a series of artworks by leading Australian artists, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Megan Cope, Jagath Dheerasekara, Khaled Sabsabi, and Matthew Sleeth, whose works respond to the death penalty and profile human rights.

Curated by Ben Quilty and Michael Dagostino, Another Day in Paradise was developed by Campbelltown Arts Centre and first presented as part of Sydney Festival. This exhibition presents a vast and sobering series of powerful portraits by Sukumaran, painted during his incarceration at Bali’s Kerobokan jail and from his final incarceration on Nusa Kambangan Island.

Another Day in Paradise highlights the importance of forgiveness and compassion for humanity, while proving the profound power of art to change lives.

Tuggeranong Arts Centre CEO Rauny Worm emphasises, ‘the Centre is very much aware of the sensitivities of this exhibition and the ethical and moral complexity surrounding Sukumaran’s story.’ For this reason, TAC will present these works along with ‘The Human Condition,’ a suite of public programs that invite the community to explore the many difficult themes and questions emerging from the works and the associated story.

Happening until Sunday 29 April at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, 137 Reed Street North, Greenway.

‘TRANSITIONS’

Artists: Helen Bodycomb, Pamela Irving, Rachel Bremner, Caitlin Hughes, Kate Butler

Featuring work by five leading mosaic artists, Transitions will explore the mosaic as a vehicle for complex artistic expression and conceptual investigation using traditional methods and experimental techniques.

In the last two decades there has been a resurgence of the ancient craft of mosaics both internationally and in Australia, with numerous Australian practitioners gaining international recognition. Despite the current surge in contemporary mosaics in Australia it is a little known phenomena. The exhibition seeks to address this imbalance.

EXHIBITION ‘FUNCTIONAL SHADOWS: MARILOU CHAGNAUD’

2017 Artist-in-Residence Marilou Chagnaud will present a new body of work for her solo exhibition Functional Shadows.

Functional Shadows narrates a journey between two places, a research period at the Australian War Memorial followed by a residence at Gudgenby Ready-Cut Cottage in the Namadgi National Park. During two weeks, I explored the AWM collection of objects, studying materials, collecting shapes and stories. My research led me to pay attention to the history of camouflage in Australia during World War II, specifically the use of shadows to create visual confusion. The exhibition will present a body of works questioning our reading of forms and objects as well as
pushing the lines between function and abstraction.

Marilou Chagnaud is a French artist and designer established in Canberra. Approaching paper with an eye to its sculptural possibilities, she explores the deployment of printed patterns into spatial installations, objects and sculptures, investigating the path from two to three-dimensional space as well as the notions of repetition and perception.

Presented in partnership with ACT Parks and Conservation Service and the Australian War Memorial.

Happening until Saturday 5 May at Craft ACT, 180 London Circuit, Level 1, North Building, City.

See the website for more information.

1968: CHANGING TIMES

Sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll…and a missing prime minister.

1968 was momentous. A time of tumultuous world events, including the Vietnam War and the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy.

At home in Australia, we struggled with the fallout from the December 1967 disappearance of Prime Minister Harold Holt and growing unrest about conscription for overseas military service.

From Hendrix’s blistering solos and far-out fashions to a swinging counter-culture, there was a strong sense that the world was rapidly changing. Where were we headed?

The opening of the National Library’s lakeside building in Canberra in August 1968 was a moment of national pride and achievement in the midst of this turbulent time.

Revisit the 1960s as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the building’s opening, and reflect on what was happening in the world, in Australia and in Canberra at the time.

Showing until Sunday 12 August at the National Library of Australia, Parkes Place West, Parkes.

See the website for more information.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME

A preview of new work by trailblazing stencil artist Luke Cornish (ELK).

Luke Cornish’s current practice is focussed on the war ravaged streets of Syria, and the individuals caught in the conflict. More specifically, Cornish aims to put a human face to the effects of war, and to portray the hope and positivity which he encountered there.

Works are a mixture of stencil, aerosol and sublimation on aluminium on canvas. Sublimation printing is a process of heating dye and transferring onto a medium such as paper or plastic.

This exhibition is presented alongside Another Day in Paradise.

Happening until Sunday 29 April 2018 from 10am–5pm at Tuggeranong Arts Centre, 137 Reed Street North, Greenway. Free entry.

See the website for more information.

ART DECO

Comprised entirely of works selected from the National Gallery of Australia’s collection, Art Deco presents superb examples of Australian vitalism, capturing Art Deco’s fascination with the meeting of art, architecture, and technology.

In the 1920s, Australian artists rebelled against the austerity of World War I to create images of an abundant nation filled with strong, youthful figures, capturing the vitalism of a nation reborn.

Technological advancements and urbanisation influenced the emergence of Art Deco: a new aesthetic in art, architecture, design and fashion.

Art Deco presents superb examples of Australian Vitalism, including Rayner Hoff’s architectural frieze Deluge – stampede of the lower gods 1927, Jean Broome-Norton’s Abundance 1934 and Napier Waller’s painting, I’ll put a girdle round about the earth 1933, which captures Art Deco’s fascination with the meeting of art, architecture and technology. 

Showing until Monday 31 December 2018, 7 days from 10am-5pm at National Gallery of Australia, Parkes Place West, Parkes.

For more information, see the website.

DEEDS NOT WORDS: THE BESSIE RISCHBIETH COLLECTION

National Library of Australia is proudly representing the opportunity to see the collection of Bessie Rischbieth, a prominent figure in Australian and international feminism.

During her stay in England in 1913, Bessie Rischbieth witnessed the whirlwind of the suffragettes’ struggle for the right to vote, which was then at its height.

Fascinated by the charisma of the suffragettes and their militant actions, she gathered memorabilia of the movement, building a collection of photographs, pamphlets, newspaper cuttings, suffrage periodicals, postcards and correspondence. She continued to grow the collection for the remainder of her life.

Rischbieth bequeathed this ‘living memorial’ to the National Library of Australia.

Free entry.

Showing until 19 August daily from 10 am to 5 pm at National Library of Australia, Parkes Place West, Parkes.
