9 September - 10 October 2009

The hermetic, watery world of the mains-stream media could perhaps be intended to parallel the ‘art world’ too. Beyond through the rectangular holes in the wall, there exists the so-called ‘life world’. Where folks like you and me fit in - in terms of these options - huddled over our various computers, I’m not quite sure.

For Keeps: Sampling recent acquisitions 2006-2009

Curated by Natasha Conland


18 June - 12 July 2009

There are 26 artists here, including the Australian photographer Bill Henson who has a whole room to himself to display eight night-time images. This is an excellent show, yet oddly it is only up for a month. Make sure you see it.
