Nadine Christensen explores the unextraordinary
Nadine Christensen’s survey exhibition at Buxton Contemporary spans more than two decades of her practice, bringing together 80 works that explore the quotidian with substantial depth and humour.
For the first time in its 47-year-long history, the Biennale of Sydney (BOS) is offering a selection of artworks featured in its current exhibition, NIRIN, for sale in an online auction.
The 22nd Biennale of Sydney: NIRIN Benefit Auction is open now online, and bidding closes Sunday 27 September 2020 at 5 pm.
The initiative seeks to address the fact that the global arts community has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. The auction is being held to raise funds for both the artists and the BOS, with 70% of proceeds going to the artists.
The participating are: Tony Albert, Colectivo Ayllu, Denilson Baniwa, Eric Bridgeman, Randy Lee Cutler, Jose Dávila, Karla Dickens, Demian DinéYazhi´ and R.I.S.E., Léuli Eshrāghi, Andre Eugene, Iltja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre, Emily Karaka, Barbara McGrady, Kulimoe’anga Stone Maka, Noŋgirrŋa Marawili, John Miller, Jota Mombaça, Manuel Ocampo, Rosana Paulino, Laure Prouvost, Bhenji Ra, Anders Sunna, Tennant Creek Brio, Ahmed Umar and Pedro Wonaeamirri (with Patrick Freddy Puruntatameri).
Karla Dickens has chosen to donate 100% of any sales she makes to the Biennale of Sydney. The Wiradjuri artist announced her decision saying, “NIRIN is an experience of human connection. Given the neglect of artists worldwide through such intense times, I see the opportunity to donate artwork to the Biennale auction as my duty; a duty of love to fellow artists, their work and their survival. Together we stand.”
NIRIN is still open at Carriageworks until 26 September, at the Art Gallery of New South Wales and Artspace until 27 September, and at Campbelltown Arts Centre until 4 October.
