London is a truly international city and this is reflected in the spread of artists living, studying and working here. Australian artists have contributed to this rich diversity through showing with London galleries, collaborating with London-based artists and in some cases moving their practice to London.
Time & Vision seeks to reflect this fluid new reality by providing an opportunity to showcase Australian talent that is operating successfully beyond its borders.Many of the artists will be premiering new work at the show which will include film, photography, sculpture, painting, performance, installations and site-specific work.
Exhibiting Artists: Paul Knight, Lyndall Phelps, Tom Polo, Sally Smart, Daniel von Sturmer, Michelle Ussher, Daniel Crooks, Nicole Ellis, Patrick Hartigan, Jacki Middleton, Vanilla Netto, Helen Pynor, Erica Seccombe, Renee So and Kathy Temin.
Since 1992, 70 Australian artists have benefited from three-month long residencies in London and this milestone is being celebrated through the project Time & Vision, funded by the Australia Council for the Arts and supported by the Australian High Commission in London.
Time & Vision is curated by Paul Bayley (UK) and highlights the talent, range and vitality of contemporary Australian visual artists and their contribution to contemporary visual culture in London. The project comprises a major publication documenting all 70 of the artists who have participated in the residencies, the exhibition of 15 artists’ work, a film by artist Liam Benson and an ongoing online platform curated by artist Caroline Kha: http://timeandvision.vaaus.co.uk
The benefit of London residencies for Australian artists cannot be overstated - not only for individual artistic inspiration and career development but also for opening pathways of international communication, cultural co-operation, understanding and exchange for both nations. Time & Vision is a major public project which acknowledges and celebrates the value of these residencies and the achievement of the artists.
Time & Vision 20 October to 11 November 2012, Open daily 11am-6pm, Free admission. Curator-led tour, artist talks and performance by Tom Polo: 21 October 2012
