Border Crossing

22 February – 18 March

Artists: Michelle Browne, Julie Gough, Sandra Johnston, Sue Kneebone, Yhonnie Scarce & Dominic Thorpe.

Border Crossings brought together Australian and Irish curators and artists to explore cross-cultural issues surrounding ethnic conflict, the legacy of colonialism and the challenges of reconciliation that are relevant to both countries. Drawing on family stories, social histories, field and archival research, the artists interrogated the curatorial premise from a wide range of perspectives and presented work that was at once challenging, powerful, poetic and whimsical.

The Unstable Image

29 March – 22 April

The artists in this exhibition employed strategies of repetition, subversion or transparency to challenge the traditional role and/or the inherent qualities of printmaking. Works by Aleksandra Antic, Paul Coldwell, Marian Crawford, Joel Gailer, Performprint and Olga Sankey extended and questioned the notion of the resilience of the image in a contemporary context.
