Booth E18 + IC09 for Glenn Barkley

Sullivan+Strumpf is delighted to participate in Sydney Contemporary 2018 (Booth E18) with a presentation of new and recent works by Tony Albert, Sydney Ball, Glenn Barkley, Karen Black, Barbara Cleveland, Sam Leach, Lindy Lee, eX de Medici, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Dawn Ng, Baden Pailthorpe, Alex Seton, Grant Stevens and Angela Tiatia.

A highlight of the presentation is Sydney Ball's Chromix Lumina 14, a large-scale work from the artist's Infinex series, his final and never-before-seen body of work. Realised in automotive enamel on aluminium, a method of manufacturing the artist devised out of physical necessity at the age of 81, Chromix Lumina 14 represents the pinnacle of Ball's lifeling research into the relationship between form, colour and light.

In addition, no fewer than six S+S artists have been invited to participate in the curated sections of the fair. Angela Tiatia is included in Video Contemporary, curated by Kelly Gellatly; Karen Black has collaborated with Handpicked Wines to create an immersive-art-experience-cum-bar; Glenn Barkley will create a cabinet of curiosities filled with new vessel forms and collages; while Lindy Lee, Alex Seton and Tim Silver will present solo presentations for Installation Contemporary, curated by Nina Miall.

Panel Discussion:
The Waves: Gender, Representation, and the Market Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10am at S+S Sydney, 799 Elizabeth Street, Zetland. Featuring Barbara Cleveland (artist collective), Christine Dean (artist), Angela Tiatia (artist), Julie Ewington (curator, writer & broadcaster) and Ursula Sullivan (co-director of S+S, Sydney & Singapore) on the panel, moderated by Kate Britton (curator).

Artist Talks:
Saturday, 15 September 2018, 12.30pm at the fair, starting at Booth IC09 and following a series of other talks at Booth E18.

Tim Silver in An Unorthodox Flow of Images
Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne
30 September - 12 November 2017

Curated by Naomi Cass and Pippa Milne
Presented with Melbourne Festival

An unorthodox flow of images 
commences with what is known as the first press photograph in Australia and unfurls through historic, press, portraiture, popular and art photography, some in their intended material form and others as reproductions. An unbroken thread connects this line of still and moving images, each tied to those on either side through visual, conceptual, temporal, material or circumstantial links. 

This is a proposition about photography now. Relationships between images are sometimes real, and sometimes promiscuous. Unorthodox brings new contexts to existing artworks whilst celebrating the materiality of real photographs, in real time and critically, honouring the shared democratic experience of the public gallery space.

McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery
Langwarrin, Victoria
13 December 2015 - 21 February 2016

The observation of materials and forms in various states of change and transition has been at the heart of Tim Silver’s art for the past two decades. As one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, Silver is well known for using mutable materials in the creation of his sculptures. Ranging from crayons, watercolour pigments, builder’s putty to confectionary, once cast, Silver’s sculptures begin to change. Sometimes it is simply the atmospheric effects of humidity, air and gravity that activate the works disintegration, whilst others are thrust into transition via fire or detonation resulting in the sculptures dramatic end. In this way Silver sees his sculptures as objects that ‘participate in the world, in real time’ rather than objects of permanence. For his exhibition at McClelland, Silver will present a performative video alongside a series of steel and bronze sculptures cast directly from trees ravaged by the devastating 2012–13 Dunalley bushfires in Tasmania. This new series of sculptures poignantly captures the residue of nature after a catastrophic event.

HIROMI TANGO


Sullivan+Strumpf is pleased to be exhibiting at Art Brussels for the 33rd iteration of the international fair.

Following sell-out success at Art Basel Hong Kong, Japanese-born artist, Hiromi Tango, produces evocative, highly personal neon works through her meditative art-making process of wrapping and weaving.

Exhibiting extensively in Australia and abroad, Tim Silver works across sculpture, video, photography and installation. Often made from entropic materials, such as sawdust and putty, the works begin to decompose from the moment of their assembly.

Being the only Australian gallery to be exhibiting at Art Brussels, Sullivan+Strumpf hopes to expose international audiences to the work of contemporary Australian artists, while enjoying continued overseas success.
