We acknowledge and pay our respect to the many Aboriginal nations across this land, traditional custodians, Elders past and present; in particular the Guringai people of the Eora Nation where Art Almanac has been produced.

From the minutiae of local towns to sprawling global networks, this issue considers the vast conceptual currency of contemporaneity. Featured group shows ‘Incommensurable’ and ‘Under Civilisation’ explore diametric experiences of globilisation and regionality respectively by harnessing the documentary power of art. This oscillation between macro and micro continues on a formal level in the practices of Oscar Perry and Lottie Consalvo; where the artists’ different takes on abstraction excavate a broad scope of thematic terrain across the personal to the performative and politico-cultural.

Festival of Live Art Staged across Melbourne’s Arts House, Theatre Works and Footscray Community Arts Centre from 13 to 25 March 2018, the third biennial ‘Festival of Live Art’ (FOLA) features a program of immersive and interactive art experiences. FOLA nurtures engagement between artist, artwork and audience with four new works. Jonathan Homsey’s ‘Mx.Red’ blurs the lines between virtuality and physicality by bringing together motion capture technology and live performances, creating a new experience of dance, expression and intimacy beyond gender lines. Homsey’s ‘Waackin’ Ball’ is a queer futurist celebration that unites the local and international waackin’ community. ‘Self Seekers’, The Amplified Elephants’ electronic sound art piece of live video, abstract sound and performance, delves into ‘selfie’ culture and the unique ways each person listens to the world around them. ‘Lovely Mess’ sees theatre group Riot Stage and projection artist Yandell Walton collaborate with ten young people to explore adolescence, and the experimental performance ‘Verbatim’ by artists, the indirect Object, presents three immersive, intimate stories of intergenerational mental illness. fola.com.au Sunny Chiron in ‘Lovely Mess’ Photograph: Jack Zaphalis Courtesy the artist and Festival of Live Art, Melbourne

Spirit Lines Graphic works by Sylvia and Tony Convey Essay by Colin Rhodes Tellurian Research Press

‘When I was a child in solitude with my pencils and crayons and scraps of paper I felt that I was drawing the world together’. So reads Sylvia Convey’s reflection in the opening pages of ‘Spirit Lines’, an evocative hardcover book documenting the graphic outsider art of Sylvia and Tony Convey. Bringing together a selection of their drawings, etchings, monoprints, screen prints and collage, the book traces the Conveys’ lived and oneiric experiences through thematised chapters including ‘Eros’, ‘Family’ and ‘The Uncanny’. Many of the works have never been on view before, hidden in sketchbooks and in the artists’ studios for decades, offering the reader an intimate glimpse into the unique oeuvres of this self-described ‘tribe of two’.

Driftwood: Escape and survival through art Eva De Jong-Duldig Arcadia

‘Driftwood’ is a compelling story of the emigration of sculptor Karl Duldig (19021986), his artist/inventor wife Slawa HorowitzDuldig (1902-1975) and their daughter Eva, the author. Their journey begins with a timely exit from Vienna to Singapore in 1938, to escape the war in Europe, then across continents to Australia in 1940 to an intern camp in northern Victoria classified as enemy aliens. Released in 1942 with renewed hope, determination and strength of spirit, the family moved to Melbourne. Karl and Slawa’s artistic skills afforded them opportunity to make and teach art and was key to their survival in this new land. From a meagre starting point, in the face of adversity, dislocation from homeland and loss of family, together they built a new and successful life. 23


Oscar Perry

The Michelin Star Elli Walsh

Melbourne artist Oscar Perry creates thematic installations fusing painting, sculpture, video and performance. Excavating the sociocultural strata of recent milieu – from popular culture and cinema to conspiracy theories and capitalist propaganda – Perry’s works are like symbolic dioramas welding together the crossroads of fragmented histories and fraught contemporaneity. What is the inspiration behind your latest body of work? The show’s called ‘The Michelin Star’. It’s a show that examines the Michelin tyre company and its complicated legacy. I was thinking about Manuel from ‘Fawlty Towers’. The confused waiter became a sort of physical guide to making work. In an episode called ‘Communication Problems’, Manuel delivers his famous line ‘I know nothing’. An apt mantra for the studio. There’s something unusual about the sets in sitcoms. They stand still in time. Minor variations on established gags snowball into huge comedic moments. I think the work comes out of a similar idea. The techniques and material shift around. Basically, I’m just trying to capture an atmosphere. Painting and objects need to feel right – it’s a continuity that only I can locate.

The shape of things to come Miriam Kelly

‘The shape of things to come’ could not be a more apt title for the inaugural Buxton Contemporary exhibition. With this phrase, borrowed from Benjamin Armstrong’s alchemic linocuts printed in metallic pigment, curator Melissa Keys establishes a sentiment that addresses the conceptual parameters of the 77 works on display, along with the role this show plays in foregrounding the journey of Melbourne’s newest institution; past, present and future. Buxton Contemporary is the outcome of the gift to the University of Melbourne by Michael and Janet Buxton, comprising predominantly Australian artworks from the 1980s to 2017. The couple began collecting in 1995, inspired by the philanthropy they witnessed in America in 1990, and later by the focused collection donated by Loti and Victor Smorgon to the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia in 1995. The Collection has been carefully crafted over the past 28 years with the defined intention to eventually donate the holdings for the benefit of public access. Under the ‘Museums and Collections’ umbrella, the 354 works will be transferred to the university over the coming five years, accompanied by additional donations towards the construction and operation of the Buxton Contemporary museum. Joining Keys as the Director is former Australian War Memorial Head of Art, Ryan Johnston.

Lottie Consalvo In the Remembering Melissa Pesa

The ontology of performance, time and altered states of consciousness are explored in the oeuvre of Melbourne-born, Newcastle-based artist Lottie Consalvo, who attempts to capture the transience of performance as materiality. The origin of her practice lies in figurative painting, a medium the artist felt, in its singularity, restricted her in reaching the depths she desired. In 2011 Consalvo spent time researching the arts scene in Germany, hanging out and working in the edgy, creative coteries of Berlin, Hamburg and Leipzig. Here she found a mode of artmaking that contained the method and language required to record her ongoing study of time and self-examination. This development was anchored in the revolutionary practice of French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, whose 1960s assemblages were created via the pull of a trigger – action paintings the result of a firearm, its bullet penetrating paint containers on the canvas. It was the viewing of de Saint Phalle’s shooting outfit in Hanover, part of the Sprengel Museum’s permanent collection, that inspired Consalvo to incorporate an active element to her work.

Kate Just How I Will Change RMIT Project Space Until 22 March, 2018 Melbourne

Sally Stokes and Leah Thiessen come together for ‘ESSENCE’, an exhibition of paintings portraying the intrinsic qualities of the land – ruminations of the artists’ own deep connections to it. Lavished in rich, vibrant colour, the spirited attributes, rawness and beauty of Australian landscapes unfold. These painterly gestures reveal the artists’ personal musings and perception of their surroundings. ‘I have a deep affinity for the land, it’s a place for immersion, to experience and be absorbed,’ says Thiessen.

Melbourne-based artist Kate Just presents newly-commissioned neon works responding to the feminist hashtags recently proliferating in social media to generate dialogue about the issue of sexual harassment and violence against women. Focusing on the placement of four key phrases on pastel painted walls, Just’s installation highlights the undercurrent of optimism and inclusion in slogans that centre on sharing, solidarity and social transformation.

Albert Namatjira

Joel Crosswell

Painting Country

Anonymous Souls

Western Arrarnta artist Albert Namatjira translated the ancient beauty of the Central desert landscape through his watercolours of ghostly gums, red gorges and purple mountain peaks, ancient paths and waterways; with some scenes inhabited by people and animals. Namatjira’s paintings instill an Indigenous narrative that subverts the possessive function of the Western landscape genre in Australian art through a visual display of reclamation of land and culture.

These new mixed media works contain apparitions and unknown forces that seem to speak to one another. The artist has corralled his spirits into an earthly and psychedelic space with recognisable forms, such as the human body, but eschews anatomical attention opting for a rich, rainbow palette. Crosswell’s interest in altered states, his subconscious and patterns that emerge in the visual trope of ‘shadows’, are ripe for a day-trip to the gallery.

Artist Opportunities We have selected a few galleries and funding bodies calling for submissions for Art Awards, Artist Engagements, Grants, Public Art, Residency Programs, Exhibition Proposals and more. Enjoy and good luck! NSW Aboriginal Arts Fellow announcement for 2018

Create NSW has announced Sydney-based artist Travis De Vries as this year’s recipient of the NSW Aboriginal Arts Fellow, one of five $50,000 Priority Fellowships offered each year in line with the priority areas highlighted as part of the ten-year NSW Arts and Cultural Policy Framework – Create in NSW. Seven additional $30,000 artform focused fellowships are also supported through this initiative. Muswellbrook-born De Vries has been practicing since 2006 and works across several mediums; painting, contemporary dance, choreography, music and writing. Throughout 2018 he will undertake a residency at the Australian Museum and use this funding to assist his research of Gamilaroi language and lore. The outcome of this project will be a major new work by De Vries, for an exhibition at the Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre in 2019. Create NSW CEO Michael Brealey says, ‘Through careful research and experimentation, Travis is able to interpret Aboriginal culture, bringing it to life with a standout graphic style that appeals to both western and contemporary Indigenous audiences,’ and affirms that Create NSW is ‘passionate about supporting NSW’s Aboriginal artists and creating new opportunities for their growth and development across the state. We are delighted that Travis will follow past recipients such as author and arts leader Cathy Craigie and theatre producer and curator Andrea James in accepting this Fellowship.’
