Sept 11 to 15 (open­ing Sept 14, 5.307.30pm) Proud – is an an­nu­ally held stu­dent-cu­rated ex­hi­bi­tion show­cas­ing the work of cur­rent stu­dents at the VCA School of Art. The ex­hi­bi­tion al­lows for the work of emerg­ing artists to be en­joyed by the pub­lic and the wider Mel­bourne art com­mu­nity. The Proud ex­hi­bi­tion has be­come a ma­jor plat­form for cur­rent stu­dents of the Fine Art de­part­ment to ex­hibit in an es­tab­lished gallery amongst their peers.

Proud sig­ni­fies the iden­tity of the VCA, expressing the col­lec­tive na­ture of a new gen­er­a­tion of artists with di­verse, in­trigu­ing and chal­leng­ing prac­tices. Sept 7 and 21 6.00pm REM­EDY 2017 Parts 1 & 2 – Jon Camp­bell, em­i­nent VCA Alumna and for­mer staff mem­ber has cu­rated two pro­grams of per­for­mance by alumna, staff, cur­rent stu­dents. For over 15 years, Camp­bell’s REM­EDY pro­grams en­cour­aged VCA stu­dents to ex­plore artis­tic ex­pres­sion be­yond stu­dio prac­tice to in­clude mu­sic, spo­ken word and per­for­mance art. Both ses­sions of REM­EDY 2017 in­clude a heady mix of new and fa­mil­iar faces. Sept 20 5.30pm Dr Mark Tit­marsh Book Launch: ‘Ex­panded Paint­ing: On­to­log­i­cal Aes­thet­ics and the Essence of Colour’. The rel­e­vance of paint­ing has been ques­tioned many times over the last cen­tury, by the ar­rival of pho­tog­ra­phy, in­stal­la­tion art and dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies. But rather than ac­cept the death of paint­ing, Mark Tit­marsh traces a para­dox­i­cal in­ter­face be­tween this art form and its op­pos­ing forces to de­fine a new prac­tice known as ‘ex­panded paint­ing’. As the for­mal bound­aries tum­ble, the be­ing of paint­ing ex­pands to be­come a kind of to­tal art in­cor­po­rat­ing all other me­dia in­clud­ing sculp­ture, video and per­for­mance.
