Notice of Proposed Development:
77 Salamanca Place, Hobart
(Salamanca Arts Centre)

1 April - 30 April

Installation by Lucy Hawthorne. Notice of Proposed Development: 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart (Salamanca Arts Centre) is a site-specific pseudo-development proposal for Salamanca Arts Centre. Emulating the bureaucracy of local government planning regulations, the proposed redevelopment is deliberately absurd, mimicking trends in contemporary museum architecture and applying them in monumental scale to the rather modest Salamanca Arts Centre building. In doing so, the SAC building will be transformed into a cutting edge monument to rival institutions such as the Guggenheim(s), the…

Through the window was a picture

13 April - 29 April

1. My mother was strict. We weren’t permitted to play with water, even though it was always raining. We weren’t permitted to waste toilet paper. I was wary of the consequences. 2. The second time, you asked ‘’what are you hiding under there?’’ I said ‘’a jewel’’ You didn’t laugh. In this work by emerging artist Maria Blackwell, images of memory are removed from the wall, and kept inside a plinth. The platform that usually serves to elevate work will…

Against the Dark

3 May - 31 May

A photographic exhibition exploring our collective relationship and understanding of visual symbols. Following in the tradition of psychoanalysis, Carl Jung asserted that many of his patients displayed an uncanny repetition of ideas and motifs within their thought processes. He reasoned that ever-present symbols had been passed down genetically, one generation to another, as humankind’s ‘collective unconscious’. Inspired by this observation, Against the Dark by emerging artist Rebecca Robinson brings together a thoughtfully assembled series of antique vernacular photography. Each image…

Doing Time, Oatlands Gaol Residency
