Featuring, Margaret Genever, Carly Scoufos and John Eaton.

Drawing is enjoying a resurgence in popularity in contemporary art. This exhibition will present three artists individually under the single banner of the theme ‘drawing’. It will examine new approaches to drawing outside the traditional definition of drawing as ‘mark-making’, including works about drawing extending to performative works and those that feature art objects.

Them

Them – Artur Zmijewski
19 Feb – 3 April.

Polish artist, Artur Zmijewski, is renowned for his confronting documentary videos. He observes people, often in scenarios he has himself set up.

‘Them’, a single channel video work reads like a parody on an art school crit-session. It documents a series of art workshops Zmijewski held with members of four Polish extremist groups.

First he met with them separately, and had them paint their insignia, the symbols of their beliefs. Then he brought them together to correct one another’s paintings. Conflict erupted as the Catholics and neo-nationalists united against the left-wingers and Jewish youths.

They started painting over, cutting and burning the others’ symbols, clashing over the body politics of the Polish nation. Despite their radical differences, those on the far right and those on the far left behaved similarly, speaking on behalf of the social whole while ignoring the other.

Zmijewski’s videos are at once uncannily like and unlike reality television. They catch us at our most naked and vulnerable. Sometimes hysterical, sometimes painful to watch, they are a profound exploration of our situation and the double binds it entails.

Momentum

5 March to 27 March.
All KickArts artist members are provided with an 8 x 10 inch board to work within a theme. The exhibition allows Insider members of KickArts the opportunity to exhibit a work and contribute either a 50% or 100% donation towards the next year’s program.

The theme for 2010 is ‘Momentum’.
Momentum, it’s what gives you the ability to move ahead. It’s about new ideas, new thought and debate, surging ever forward, growing, learning. It’s thinking about your space, your environment, the issues that affect you and you effect, how you relate to your world and consequently move through it. What drives you? What gives you your momentum? Art doesn’t stand still, let’s see where it can go.

The closing night auction is on Friday 26 March, 6:00 pm.
Free entry, all welcome.
