remix is an exciting exhibition that showcases the creativity of twenty contemporary Western Australian artists of diverse backgrounds, age and experience. The exhibition includes a broad mix of media with painting, sculpture, design, photography, textile and filmic work, most of it new or recently created and representing some of the most compelling examples of contemporary practice by Western Australian artists.
Like the mixtape exhibitions in 2003 and 2006, remix brings together a diverse group of works that offer an opportunity to experience what some of Western Australia’s artists are doing in their practice. The works selected are not limited by a single theme but instead are orchestrated around approaches to making art, materiality or the experience of place. Above all, remix aims to delight and engage anyone interested in sampling what is happening now in contemporary art in Western Australia.
The selected artists are; Daniel Argyle, Lydia Balbal, Jacqueline Ball, Helena Bogucki, Helen Britton, Paul Caporn, Jane Donlin, Tarryn Gill /Pilar Mata Dupont, Adam Goodrum, Jon Goulder, Thomas Jeppe, Laura Johnson, Siné MacPherson, Carlier Makigawa, Claire Martin, Graham Miller, Clare Peake, Justin Spiers, Juha Tolonen and Brendan Van Hek.
A substantial catalogue with commissioned texts will complement the exhibition.
