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.

ACCA Main Exhibition Gallery
111 Sturt Street
Southbank, Melbourne

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.

Kerjasama: Indigenous Artist in Residence 2016
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.

TONY ALBERT, SAM LEACH, RICHARD LEWER, ALEX SETON, TIM SILVER, AIDA TOMESCU
ANNE & GORDON SAMSTAG MUSEUM OF ART
University of South Australia, Adelaide
Friday 3 June - Friday 29 July 

In 2016 the Fleurieu Art Prize – the richest landscape art prize in the world – will relocate from its home on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia to the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art in Adelaide, where it will be presented to city audiences for the first time.

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.
