Dream Weavers

ALASDAIR MCLUCKIE, DYLAN MARTORELL, KATE JUST, MICHELLE HANLIN, NATHAN GRAY, JAMES EISEN, JACQUE DRINKALL, SEAN BAILEY, BELLE BASSIN

CURATORS: KATE JUST & DAINE SINGER // Dream Weavers brings together artists working with the visual languages of the holistic and the spiritual. They use aesthetics and interests most strongly associated with New Age and counter-cultural movements of the 1960s and 1970s, as a means of reappraising the power of mysticism, paganism, the supernatural, arcane symbolism, folk, goddess worship and tribalism.

Conceptual

LUCIA USMIANI, ANNE MESTITZ, KEVIN LEONG, LEIGH HOBBA, SCOT COTTERELL, MEGAN WALCH

CURATOR: COLIN LANGRIDGE // A curated group exhibition that investigates the term ‘conceptual art’. This term has both a specific art historical meaning and a more general application in contemporary art circles, making it ambiguous. It is important for those interested in contemporary art practices to clarify what is meant by conceptual art and this exhibition by Tasmanian artists encourages dialogue around the term.

Lookout

BEC STEVENS, JACK ROBINS, NANCY MAURO-FLUDE, ANDREW HARPER, ADAM CUTHBERT, MARY SCOTT, DAVID KEELING, JULIE GOUGH, MICHAEL SINGE

CURATORS: MICHAEL EDWARDS & JANE STEWART // Lookout is the sixth project in a series partnered by CAST and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery which aims to promote contemporary Tasmanian artists. Though the nine artists are at different stages in their careers, each looks outwards and responds directly to the world surrounding them. Demonstrating an awareness of a new internationalism in contemporary art practice, they create artworks that reference a divergent range of local and global issues including the environment, history, politics, knowledge systems and public spaces.
