Blaxland Centre, 21 Blaxland Crescent Griffith ACT
Congratulations to Yarra Valley-based artist David Ray who has won the $10,000 biennial Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award.
Staged in collaboration with the Magritte Foundation in Belgium, The Revealing Image displays a collection of Magritte’s personal, and largely unseen, photographs and films.
Australian constructivism, since its birth in the 1930s, built upon the legacy of both British and Russian constructivists, “by emphasising the material, spatial and technical aspects of art making, and by furthering the abstract language of geometric forms,” explains curator Sue Cramer.
“I am interested in the relationship between cinema and painting,” the Sydney-based artist explains, specifically, “the affinity the two mediums share, the influence painting has had on the moving image, and, in return, the influence the moving image has had on painting.”
