CURTIN Curated by Andie Tham and Johann Rashid

Seventh Gallery
155 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy VIC 3065
Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday 12pm – 6pm
Curtin is a recent survey of ten emerging artists, who all site sourced and found material as the starting point of image making and technical process. Linking themes and joining narratives through juxtaposition of high and low brow imagery, this exhibition aims to be a fun exploration of different modes in contemporary culture. Curtin is a group of friends, who’s work directly addresses their surroundings. Inspired by found and sourced imagery from the internet, magazines, old books, and film, these processes involve conscientious cropping, collaging, and re-appropriation. The opening of Curtin will also double as a book launch, celebrating a free limited edition publication also titled Curtin, that showcases images from all artists in the exhibition.
