No­vem­ber 2018

Art Almanac - - Contents -

We ac­knowl­edge and pay our re­spect to the many Abo­rig­i­nal na­tions across this land, tra­di­tional cus­to­di­ans, El­ders past and present; in par­tic­u­lar the Guringai peo­ple of the Eora Na­tion where Art Al­manac has been pro­duced.

We re­cently wit­nessed one of the great­est ex­am­ples of an artist break­ing ‘the rules’, and cre­at­ing some­thing in the process. Aus­tralia boasts a strong set of rogues as well. Noŋ­gir­rŋa Marawili’s lim­i­ta­tions free her, ‘The paint­ing I do is not sa­cred – it is my own de­signs from the out­side.’ Amor­phous wall pieces by Ste­vie Field­send ex­plore how the body and ma­te­ri­als know no bounds. We re­flect on the life of Mirka Mora whose fan­tasy coloured our re­al­ity. Artists in group shows ‘The Com­mute’ and ‘Pos­si­ble Dream The­ory #2’ em­brace the en­tan­gle­ment and mul­ti­plic­ity of per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences from liv­ing cul­ture to dreams.
