Windsong at Nyisztor Studio

 

Event Title

Windsong

Participating Artists

Michael Knight

Venue Name

Nyisztor Studio

Venue Address

391 Canning Highway Palmyra Western Australia 6157
Australia

Description

A touch of nostalgia inspired Michael Knight's latest exhibition Windsong. After years in suburban Melbourne, Knight itched to paint the sparse landscape, dazzling sea and turbulent wind he saw on brief trips home to Western Australia.

Since moving back to Fremantle in 2014, Knight has taken the opportunity to get out of his studio to station country north of Southern Cross, to the beautiful beaches in the South West, and of course around the port town itself to reconnect with the views and moods of the west coast. His Windsong landscapes are ordinary scenes shaped by the elements and emotion of the day.

Montages: The Full Cut 1999–2015 at City of Wanneroo Gallery

 

Event Title

Montages: The Full Cut 1999–2015

Participating Artists

Tracey Moffatt and Gary Hillberg

Venue Name

City of Wanneroo Gallery

Venue Address

3 Rocca Way Wanneroo Western Australia 6065
Australia

Description

Montages: The Full Cut 1999–2015 presents the full suite of 8 montage films by artist Tracey Moffatt and collaborator Gary Hillberg.

Presented together for the first time, the exhibition spans 16 years of the artist and editor's collaborative practice and includes their most recent work, The Art (2015).

The exhibition is an ode to cinema and to the cinematic form, offering unprecedented insight into the stereotypes that populate our collective cultural imagination. In this suite of montages, Moffatt and Hillberg source footage from Hollywood films, tapping into the humour and pathos of universally shared subjects like art, revolution, love and destruction.

Moffatt's recent appointment as Australia's representative artist at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017 is testament to the timeliness in presenting this significant body of work.

Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 was developed by Artspace, Sydney and is touring nationally in partnership with Museums & Galleries of NSW.
