Artist's residency at Switchback Gallery Monash University, Gippsland Campus
The exhibition is presented by Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA), Melbourne’s premier contemporary art space. Said MUMA curator Kirrily Hammond, “The dynamic spiralling forms of Mira Gojak’s sculptures and drawings are poetic evocations of the creative process. In this Gippsland exhibition MUMA presents three distinct bodies of work by the artist, drawn from the Monash University Collection.” For more information...

Artist's residency at Monash University, Gippsland Campus
Arlene TextaQueen sees the world vividly. In her work, the world we know and the world of the artist’s friends and community is condensed, distilled and made more. More colour, more detail, more life, more flesh, more character. TextaQueen is known for portraits of friends located in their own intimate environment, such as their bedroom, kitchen or lounge. In this exhibition Naked landscapes of Gippsland and beyond, she situates them in locations around Victoria and Alice Springs. Two of the works in the exhibition were created whilst on a MUMA residency at the Gippsland Centre for Art & Design, including The artist, Gippsland 2010, a selfportrait of TextaQueen naked in the landscape, being drawn by and drawing her friend Matthew. TextaQueen shares and distills something very human in her work, giving us much of herself as well as paying tribute to her world, her community and friends. For more information...
