The artists in ‘Out of the Ordinary’ and ‘Every Brilliant Eye’ embrace what’s off-kilter to bring us closer to art.

Discovering Dobell Christopher Heathcote Wakefield Press

Essays by art critic and curator Christopher Heathcote are accompanied by sketches, drawings on paper and oil paintings by William Dobell (1899-1970) in the title that presents a captivating profile of the achievements of this significant Australian painter and Archibald Prize winner (1943). Dobell was inspired by modern society and journeyed between Australia and England he captured the spirit and character of people from all walks of life in his figurative works. Portraits of artist Joshua Smith, writer Dame Mary Gilmore and Helena Rubinstein along with other notable figures, the working-class and children at play, as well as Dobell’s studies of New Guinea are featured throughout the pages of this large-format hardcover publication.

Seeing Saltwater Country Sally Mayman and Dale Kentwell Fremantle Press

Painter Dale Kentwell and photographer Sally Mayman collaborated with Indigenous people and communities of the Dampier Peninsula in the Kimberley region of north western Australia to relay traditional knowledge and connection to country. Styled in an almost year-book fashion with photos, paintings and quotes we gain contemporary insight into people’s feelings about home and place and are offered the beginnings of an education of Bardi and Jawa names for flora and fauna. As Kentwell describes the project encourages us to “heed traditional Indigenous ecological knowledge” for continuity, understanding and to guard against threats to wellbeing, such as gas extraction. The royalties the artists make from this title will be directed back to the communities for further arts initiatives.

Tell Simon Brigden Now entering its 13th year, the ‘Ballarat International Foto Biennale’ (BIFB) is one of Australia’s foremost fairs of contemporary national and international photography. The ambitious 2017 program will be held over six primary venues and more than 80 public spaces, such as cafes and wine bars, across the Victorian city. The diversity of BIFB’s activated sites is matched by the thematic range of its program; ‘Self/Selfie’ investigates the role of the titular image in society; ‘#Dysturb’ showcases the work of international photojournalists seeking to short-circuit the 24-hour news cycle and ‘David LaChapelle’ is the first Australian solo exhibition of the American photographer. Amongst this flurry of activity sits ‘Tell’, an exhibition of contemporary photography by Indigenous Australian artists. ‘Tell’ is curated by Palawa woman Jessica Clark, a curator and tutor at Melbourne’s RMIT University who recently completed the Australia Council Professional Development Program at the 2017 Venice Biennale. ‘Tell’ includes the work of 17 artists who consider both the medium of photography and Indigenous stories. Its original and diverse photographic methods and narratives promise to enrich our understanding of the field of

Future Eaters Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA) Until 23 September, 2017 Melbourne

Alex Valero A Grey Mirror

JamFactory – Contemporary Craft & Design Until 17 September, 2017 South Australia

With the function of our museums as both timekeeper and a space for ideas to gestate, curator Charlotte Day considers how people of the future may see the sculpture of our time. The show investigates the way materials and technology are constantly evolving; “I wanted to play with the timescale of the museum and push the gallery space into the future”, says Day. Australian artists include; Hany Armanious, Benjamin Armstrong, Damiano Bertoli, Marley Dawson, Lewis Fidock & Joshua Petherick and Mira Gojak.

Alex Valero’s practice aims to expand the sculptural possibilities of glass by pushing and combining traditional techniques in unconventional ways. In his first solo exhibition, Valero investigates the relationship between medium and mind, creating a landscape that invites the viewer into the depths of grey uncertainty and existential doubt. Valero says he has attempted to capture in physical form, the questions that bounce around in his mind “problems of perspective, of infinite regress, of fuzzy definitions, and of broken metaphors.”

Clare Thackway Ties

The Egg & Dart Until 9 September, 2017 New South Wales

Cross-Currents: from island to mainland Gold Coast City Gallery 9 September to 5 November, 2017 Queensland

Human movement and the sensuous undulations of fabric are used to signpost the psychological and physical ‘push-pull’ flexibility of women, both in the past and as part of contemporary life in the new paintings of Clare Thackway. Here, the artist draws on the suppleness of oil paint to re-work the female figure to communicate both its beauty and grace and the balancing act of mother or carer as well as the responsibilities of being a working woman.

South Stradbroke Island was the setting for an Indigenous artist camp mentored by Judy Watson focused on sharing strong connections to country and exploring new skills. ‘Cross-Currents’ displays work this unique journey inspired with many artists expanding their ‘go-to’ approaches with fishnets, ochre, new symbols, shaping branches or inventing forms which refract the native landscape; new works from Claire Agale, Glenn Barry, Glennys Briggs, Libby Harward, Alicia Jones, Kiana Larkins, Bryce Moran, Lisa Sorbie Martin, Jason Murphy, Dylan Sarra and Neville Torrisheba.
