24. This Land of No Horizon

Adam Gibson

25 September- 29 September

Australia is so big, the horizon could almost be said to be "never ending"; as if it is only the limits of our own vision that creates an ending, whereas in reality, the land stretches on (seemingly) forever. There is mystery in that endlessness.


25. Play

Squiggle Collective

2 October- 6 October

A world of endless possibilities are within arms reach and as we all know, it's more fun with friends. So let's come together and celebrate the marvellous world of collaboration with the Squiggle Collective.

26. networked://

Justin Balmain  

9 October- 13 October

My examination of the interrelationships between physical and virtual social models have resulted in sculptural works that move between concrete and virtual form, sometimes blurring the lines between the two. Engaging in online social networks and offline subcultures, I create works that rely both on physical outcomes, and others that remain within digital space.

Siân McIntyre

29. Artifact Cartoons

Samuel James

6 November- 10 November

Artifact Cartoons is a collection of research-animation videos which explore hybrid mechanisms of perception. Through a combination of morphic resonance and accidental encounters, video composition transfers new, animistic phenomena. As we occupy the world it is seen through our interference. Video as a re-animator of the inanimate and simultaneously a displacement of seeing.

Donna Eddie, Mollie Rice, Christine Wiltshier, Isabelle White, Alex Moore, Nicola Finlay-Jones, Katie Cave, Hannah Carroll Harris, Bec Culican, Angela Tao, Teresa Yang, Michelle Lo  

13 November- 17 November

Applying a palimpsest of notions and interpretations, the loose thread collective reveal art works which express unique dialogues between the artist and their medium.

31. Landscape Projections

Anna Russell, Angela Hayson, Brooke Thompson, Rebecca Geddes, Yana Myronenko, Viruch Pikhuntod

A collection of works by six artists where the landscape has acted as the muse. Ranging from closely observed localities and sensations of place through to interior landscapes relating to memory and culture.

32. Transformation and Renewal

Elizabeth Gervay 

27 November- 1 December

33. One Thing You Lack

Aaron Moore

4 December- 8 December

What if the sale of any one of the items on this card could save a child's life? Are we obligated to sell it? 
34-year-old artist and international aid worker, Aaron Moore's latest exhibition aims to put the teachings of Jesus Christ and moral philosopher and atheist, Peter Singer, to the test, by literally selling every item he owns and giving it to the poor. Come along and perhaps you might make a purchase that could quite literally save a life.
