Letter, Land, Lore – A visual exploration of the convergence of Jewish mysticism and Indigenous culture
3 August to 26 October

Nikki Green

Nikki Green is an Australian Jewish artist currently based in Denmark, Western Australia, one of the most bio-diverse hotspots on earth. In this new exhibition, Nikki explores the parallels between Jewish mysticism and the Indigenous Australian connection to the land. Her work combines these two seemingly disparate cultures, revealing a relationship between text, nature and spirit and the ensuing organic patterns that emerge from their intimate connections.

Nikki will also be artist-in-residence at the Museum. She will be facilitating a number of exciting visual art workshops throughout August and September. Visitors are welcome to watch Nikki working on her art and chat with her informally about her practice.

Kraftwerk – Man Machine
10-27 September

At a time of such diversity of artistic practice, Kraftwerk: Man Machine brings together four Melbourne-based artists who utilise traditional craft disciplines both conventionally and unconventionally. Rejecting the perceived disconnection between thinking and making set in motion during the industrial revolution when a machine could replace the artisan, these artists think through making, exploring the role on craftsmanship within their collective practices.

Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock
10-27 September

Smash Your Head On The Punk Rock involves the deconstruction and reconstruction of various relationships between conceptualised and physical interpretations of space. Starting from the idea that folk music is the foundation of Punk Rock, these seemingly disparate entities born from the same conceptual intention, are deciphered and presented through various layered imagery positioned within abstraction.
