It’s nearly the end of the 2011 exhibition year for Turner Galleries!  Our current exhibition, Seven from STEVENSON, closes on 16 December and staff will be taking a well deserved four week annual holiday.  We will reopen to the public on 3 February with a superb new exhibition by Marion Borgelt.

Current News!

Andrew Nicholls has work on tour in The Abandoned Boudoir, curated by Marisia Lukaszewsk. The Abandoned Boudoir is an Australian art and design exhibition devised as a ‘pop-up’ display for selected international art or design festivals to be installed in a hotel room, anywhere in the world. Existing hotel artwork, bed linens, objects, furniture and lighting in the room are removed and replaced by Australian crafted objects. During the display period, the installation will undergo subtle changes to reflect the moods of its ‘inhabitant’, functioning as a ‘living’ exhibition for visitors to inspect.

This pop-up exhibition has a great website and catalogue:

Olga Cironis is included in Re: a prefix, currently on at the WA Museum.  The show runs until 31 January and combines textile artworks from Western Australia and Japan.

Developed to celebrate the 30 year Sister State relationship between Western Australia and Hyogo, Japan this exhibition brings together works from Western Australian and Japanese artists that reflect on the rich universal traditions embedded within contemporary fibre and textile practice.

Curated by Moira Douropolous, Anne Farren, Keiko Kawashima and Trish Little and featuring 50 artists, it is on display in the Museum’s historic Hackett Hall.

The catalogue can be downloaded from the Museum’s website: or here:

Rebecca Dagnall has a solo exhibition opening this weekend at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney.  The exhibition runs from 3 December to 15 January, with an artist floor talk at 11am Saturday 3 December.

The Australian bush has long been a site of danger and mystery; there is an uneasiness as to what lingers there. Rebecca Dagnall’s latest series There is unrest in the forest, there is trouble in the trees explores the threshold between the bush and suburbia suggesting that the darkness is encroaching on civilisation rather than the other way around. The often banal Australian suburban park is transformed into a place of gothic mystery.

Melding heavy metal imagery and fantasy poster art with digitally manipulated landscapes, these seductive, threatening, fantastical and foreboding images reveal a potent suburban cultural iconography.
