Np423b: empty orchestra

Dylan Sheridan

NP423 - Sheridan’s first solo show in a white-cube gallery context - is a modular environment of hacked, circuit-bent and repurposed domestic objects. The work evolved from the idea and experience of ‘misophonia’ – an irrational and intense dislike of certain sounds. The interconnected objects each express a cathartic transformation through the amplification and synthesis of the sounds and things that irritate and ‘drive Sheridan nuts.’
OPENING: 6pm, Friday 9 August 2019 // EXHIBITION 10 August – 8 September 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT

Anthropocene Noir

Erin Linhart, Lola Page, Emily Parsons-Lord, Dexter Rosengrave, Elissa Wilson.


Finding a point of engagement with the Anthropocene, curator Eva Nilssen has invited five artists to respond to that theme in relation to noir fiction. As these artists bravely explore their own complicity in destruction it is hoped that the nature of our relationships with each other, as humans and non-humans sharing a potentially dark and perhaps thrilling new era, can be brought into focus.

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 3 May 2019 // EXHIBITION: 4 May - 26 May 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT

Unspoken Rule

Archie Barry, Louisa Bufardeci, Liam James, Annika Koops, Roee Rosen, Artur Zmijewski Curator: Stevie S. Han

Unspoken Rule is a group exhibition of Australian and international artists reflecting on identity as it intersects with a public. The exhibition re-examines the shifting sense of political and cultural agency that characterised identity politics in the 1990s, and which is finding new urgency with artists working today.

The exhibition is titled Unspoken Rule as a provocation in order to pose the questions: how do we see ourselves through the eyes of others? How do we navigate and reconcile conflicting political and cultural views in the public sphere?

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 18 January 2019 // EXHIBITION: 19 January - 24 February 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT
