Hayden Fowler’s solo show, Future Distant History, had a distinct post-apocalyptic edge. The title was a clue (picturing the present as the past of a destroyed future is what post-apocalyptic stories do) and so was the pile of bones perched on a pretty white table.
Embodying a performance art born in Sydney’s queer club scene, Justin Shoulder’s latest solo show, Carrion, stakes out post-human, apocalyptic terrain, drawing our attention to the present age of excess and environmental misuse.
Congratulations to Sally Anderson who has won the 2017 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. Speaking to the Sydney–based artist just moments after the announcement she said, “I’m a bit shocked. I knew I was in the top few, but I had no idea I was going to win! It’s an incredible opportunity.”
In the group show Nuclear, 50 diverse artists are linked by their atomic experiences.
