A Walking Exhibition is a group exhibition showing video artworks from Luke Aleksandrow, Oscar Capezio, Tony Curran, Heath Franco, Nathan Gray, Alex Hobba, Shags and Angela Tiatia. As a part of You Are Here 2017, the show takes place in different locations on Lonsdale Street, Braddon. Opening night on Wednesday 5 April, 6pm, at Anvil Studio, The Hamlet, Braddon.
The new solo exhibition by Rosalind Lemoh, Forget, Forgo, Forsake, Forgive, will take place in Silo Bakery, Kingston. Lemoh will realize a temporary installation during the opening party on October the 5th, from 6pm to 8pm, while vitrines, shelves and walls of Silo Bakery will become a collection of icons and symbols created through different moments of her career, a temporary museum representing her personal world.
For Here and There, a solo show by Peter Alwast, The Garage moves out from private garages and takes over an empty shop inside the Garema Center on Garema place. The opening party will take place on Friday June the 3rd, from 6pm to 9pm. Peter Alwast’s practice involves a clash of representational systems which means that it can be read through a tradition of dialectical tension that spans back to the Socratic method. A focus of the work is the negotiation of (apparently) opposite polarities, which are then disputed and disrupted through the process of translation. In the end, these works dismantle hierarchies and bring us to the inescapable awareness of knowing nothing.
For its second exhibition, The Garage continues its investigation into the perception of art and its context with Woody, a solo show by Sydney-based artist Natalya Hughes. Woody will take place in the garage of 34 Longstaff Street in Lyneham, with an opening party on March 7th, 2016 (6 to 9 pm).

The Garage is an independent project born from the idea that art could be shown everywhere, even in spaces not traditionally devoted to art. We are used to seeing art in museums and galleries, but what happens when artworks are shown in different contexts? Are artworks less recognisable or does a dialogue with a different space add new meanings to them? Do we still need a museum, a white cube, a case, a frame, a caption to tell what is art and what is not? Are we able to understand art in a private space, in a shop, in an office, in a garage?
