Sullivan+Strumpf magazine profiles contemporary artists in Australia, the Asia-Pacific and East Asia working across painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, ceramics, installation, textiles, digital media and more. This issue celebrates the launch of our Melbourne gallery space and inaugural exhibition - Tony Albert’s stunning show Remark, which expands his investigation into the work of Margaret Preston. We are also thrilled to introduce emerging Melbourne ceramicist James Lemon to the gallery, and to share features on Lara Merrett, Karen Black, Dane Lovett, Yang Yongliang and Tony Albert, marking the occasions of their long-awaited solo exhibitions. Primavera curator Michael Do shares insights into the long-running MCA showcase which features Julia Gutman. Finally, we give a glimpse into what’s coming up with Quick Curate: Summer Refraction, a summer-loving staff-curated show.
Sullivan+Strumpf acknowledge the Indigenous People of this land, the traditional custodians on whose Country we work, live and learn. We pay respect to Elders, past and present, and recognise their continued connection to culture, land, waters and community.
