From Friday 2 June four new exhibitions will grace the galleries of AirSpace Projects, Marrickville. Tracey Clements’ Metropolis Experiment, an installation of creeping salt and corroding steel will punctuate three exhibitions bursting with colour and emotion. Metropolis Experiment is part architectural model, part mad science: the whole city becomes a dystopian laboratory. Emotionalism, curated by Ali Noble, requires you to feel rather than intellectualise. Susan Andrews, through colourful geometric configurations of equal measurement but variable proportions takes us off-centre while Broome-based artist Lydia Balbal conveys stories of her family’s country in the Great Sandy Desert, which they were forced to leave in the 1970s due to drought. Ironically, many of the stories and memories contained within these fantastic compositions of colliding colours, relate to their experiences of life around water.
Opening Event: Friday 2 June 6-8pm
Artist Talks with refreshments: Saturday 17 June 3-5pm
Grace Burzese, Cybele Cox, Danica Firulovic, Ali Noble, Katy B Plummer, Helen Shelley
