Inaugural exhibition 
10 June — 9 July

SINGAPORE 

Featuring recent works by many of Sullivan+Strumpf’s artists, ARRIVAL explores themes such as identity, materiality, and the construction of memory, as well as the fragility and malleability of the human condition. Presenting a range of contemporary artworks in diverse media – such as sculpture, painting, photography and installation – ARRIVAL encourages audiences to delve into the complexity of contemporary art practice.

As the first Australian gallery to establish its presence in Asia, Sullivan+Strumpf opened its exhibition space in 2016 at the renowned arts enclave, Gillman Barracks in Singapore.
Sullivan+Strumpf, founded in Sydney in 2005, presents the work of established and emerging artists at the forefront of contemporary art in the Asia-Pacific region. Since its inception, the gallery has been home to diverse, innovative and progressive exhibitions across a variety of media and genres. Sullivan+Strumpf has helped foster the careers of some of the most thought- provoking artists working in the region today.

Sullivan+Strumpf organises extensive solo and group exhibitions, not only in its Sydney and Singapore spaces, but also in collaboration with public galleries across Australia and international institutions. Representing 29 artists from the Asia-Pacific region, the gallery and its artists are active members of the arts community and participate in a wide variety of museum exhibitions, awards, residencies, events and festivals. Works are regularly acquired by institutions and key private collections. In order to foster a critical and educative dialogue between its artist and multiple audiences, the gallery constantly produces unique publications. Sullivan+Strumpf has participated in major contemporary art fairs in the Asia-Pacific region since 2010 and has also exhibited in fairs in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States.

TONY ALBERT
WINNER
2016 FLEURIEU ART PRIZE
Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art
3 June - 29 July 

Tony Albert has been awarded the world's richest landscape art prize, The Fleurieu Art Prize, for his work The Hand You're Dealt. 

Tony Albert’s winning work The Hand You’re Dealt is a wall piece comprised of a suite of vintage playing cards, whose placement weaves references to Western popular culture and Australian Aboriginal culture. These intricate pieces which comprise the overall installation are superbly crafted by Albert through cutting, collage and construction techniques, work to displace traditional Australian Aboriginal aesthetics and accepted national stereotypes. This seamless blend of the kitsch and classic speaks in a contemporary voice about the Australian landscape. 

Congratulations Tony!

ANNOUNCING SULLIVAN+STRUMPF SINGAPORE

19/05/2016

Sullivan+Strumpf is proud to announce the grand opening and inaugural exhibition of their new gallery space at Singapore’s Gillman Barracks.

As the first Australian gallery to establish its presence in Asia, S+S will open an exhibition space in Singapore at the dynamic arts enclave, Gillman Barracks. For Directors and Owners, Ursula Sullivan and Joanna Strumpf, this new endeavour aims to present a platform for artists to further develop and reach the broader Southeast Asian arts community while nurturing its existing relationships.

Sullivan and Strumpf met 20 years ago and forged a partnership over a shared passion for contemporary art. Their goal has always been focused: to connect artists and art with museums and collectors. Being in Asia on a permanent basis is the next step to bringing greater visibility for artists to the region and developing new opportunities.

The gallery has established a strong identity in Asia already by its active presence at art fairs. Through its Singapore gallery, S+S will embark on a series of exhibitions showcasing its artists – both emerging and established - and also aims to foster engagement with local and regional artists. 

The inaugural exhibition Arrival explores the work of artists reflecting on themes such as identity, materiality, construction of memory, as well as the fragility and malleability of the human condition. Through recent works in diverse media – such as sculpture, painting, photography and installation – Arrival encourages spectators to delve into the complexity of contemporary art practice.

WAR - A Playground Perspective
14 May - 14 August 2016
Armory Gallery, Newington
Open weekends only

This exhibition will explore and interrogate our understanding of war and draw on the work of some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists.  Curated by Allan Giddy and Nick Vickers, it will feature paintings, installations and digital media projections, and will utilise both the Armory Gallery and Building 20, the Armory’s original 19th century gunpowder magazine.

A Playground Perspective neither condemns nor condones the conditions of war.

The proximity of bunker and gallery to the new playground facility at The Armory offers a perfect counterpoint for an exhibition that has a lot in common with the playground and an underlying theme which is, of course, much more onerous.

A Playground Perspective provides the opportunity for artists to seriously examine an aspect of human nature that is deeply embedded in our communal psyche – territorialism.

With Secrecy and Despatch
Campbelltown Arts Centre
1 Art Gallery Road, Campbelltown
9 April - 12 June

"With Secrecy and Despatch" is a phrase taken from secret orders written by Governor Macquarie to his troops in 1816 commanding them to commit a massacre of the Dharawal people living in the Appin region of New South Wales – where Campbelltown Arts Centre now stands.

This new exhibition, which reflects on the parallel colonial histories of Australia and Canada, brings together Indigenous artists from both countries to create work that directly commemorates the Appin massacre or more generally reflects on episodes of genocide and violence in each nation's history.

At the centre of the exhibition are newly-commissioned works by six Aboriginal Australian artists – Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Julie Gough, Genevieve Grieves, Dale Harding and Frances Belle Parker – and four First Nations Canadian artists: Jordan Bennett, Cheryl L’Hirondelle, Marianne Nicolson and Adrian Stimson.

With Secrecy and Despatch is a major exhibition three years in the making, created by C-A-C in collaboration with UNSW Art and Design, Canada Council for the Arts, Arts NSW, Australia Council for Arts and Winga Myamly Reconciliation Group.

NEW16 brings together eight newly commissioned projects by emerging artists around Australia. Curated by Annika Kristensen, the artists display a common interest in navigating and negotiating various tensions and thresholds: including relations between themselves and others, the artwork and the audience, private and public space, and productive futility.

 
Using visual language as a form of storytelling, the artists in NEW16 have created a unique series of works that are at once playful and poetic, futile and profound. The result is a very human exhibition – prompting us to reflect upon our own relationships, both with one another and our surrounds.

Asialink Arts Residency Laboratory
Alice Springs | Yogyakarta

Kerjasama or ‘Collaborate’ is a residency model launched in 2014 through Asialink’s Arts Residency Laboratory. It was developed in response to significant interest from Asian artists to experience regional Australia and increase their understanding of Indigenous artistic traditions and communities. Kerjasama is a crucial platform for Asialink to increase awareness of the Arts Residency Program to Indigenous applicants, and a means of supporting reciprocal residencies for Indonesian artists to Australia who have no governmental support.

Albert and Indonesian artist Timoteus Anggawan Kusno will spend six weeks together at Artback NT in Alice Springs before heading to Cemeti Art House in Yogyakarta.

Landscape as a subject for art continues to capture the imagination not only of the wider community, but also increasingly of leading artists wanting to express a connection with place, and who recognise that landscape holds a compelling power for our contemporary culture.
