What is it to be post-human?
Land Dialogues brings together a collection of emerging Australian artists all engaged in the understanding and representation of place through photographic practice.
The nine artists featured in this fascinating exhibition share the common theme of exploring and re-evaluating how the Australian community identifies, represents and values the spaces that we create and occupy.
Land Dialogues has been curated by James Farley and Christopher Orchard, and includes works by Renata Buziak, Amy Findlay, Christine McFetridge, Jacob Raupach, Kate Robertson, Felix Wilson and Carolyn Young.
A special public philosophical ‘performance’ within the exhibition, on the topic, ‘How could a posthumanist be?’ will be presented by Johannes Klabbers, Saturday, April 16 at 11am.
From there to here: Gregory Carosi
An enthralling vision of the Riverina is presented in artist Gregory Carosi’s new exhibition at the Wagga Art Gallery, From there to here.
This immersive suite of paintings in oil on birch panel conveys the visual journey of coming to see a new place.
Motivated by his recent relocation to Wagga, the exhibition reveals the ways in which the contours and character of the Riverina have come gradually into focus for the artist.
The works on display in From there to here are driven by the artist’s fascination with the region’s seasonal shifts, its rivers and its geographical diversity.
The Riverina’s built environment – from silos to country towns and regional centres – also exerts a strong influence on the work, so too the distinctive character of its people.
Gregory Carosi has worked as a painter in Sydney for the past 15 years before relocating to Wagga, and has collaborated with artists at the National Art School and Plum Letterpress.
His work has included sculpture in wood, printmaking, and the use of found objects, but is primarily concentrated on oil painting on canvas and board, guided by his interest in historical tradition, modernism and postwar abstraction.
Gregory Carosi: From there to here will be open to the public, in the Links Gallery at the Wagga Art Gallery, from Saturday, April 16 until Sunday, June 19.
