The exhibition at the Chapter Gallery features the work of international contemporary artists working in a range of media including painting, sculpture, architecture, film and video, drawing and photography. The artists explore ideas of ‘past, present and future’, defining and redefining our relationship to the world by presenting multiple perspectives from which to grasp the complexity of changing landscapes.
Darren Almond and Matt Bryans mark, manipulate and erase time. Susan Hiller, Vernon Ah Kee and Tony Albert give voice to indigenous cultures in the hope that we learn from the past; Marjetica Portc and Monika Sosnowska conjoin architecture and sculpture to investigate the poetics and politics of space; Amie Siegel and Jeremy Millar explore how events in history resonate with our understanding and experience of the present; Patricia Piccinini engages us with the changing nature of our environment.
‘The Future’s Not What It Used To Be’ is curated by Deborah Smith.
