Edo in the Sky

Marvel at intricately made and colourfully painted Japanese Edo kites at Edo in the Sky: Traditional Kites of Japan. On display will be a selection of 32 works by world-famous master kite maker Mikio Toki, whose kites have been displayed in Japan and the US.

Kite expert, Mikio Toki, is a regular guest of international kite festivals around the world. He specialises in the Edo kite, which refers to a distinctive form that remains largely unchanged since it was first developed in 18th century Edo, now known as Tokyo. Its rectangular bamboo frame is covered with strikingly decorated washi paper. Taking inspiration from ukiyo-e, the motifs are painted in bold, vibrant colours and typically feature ideographs, legendary heroes and famous kabuki actors. The popularity of early Edo kites spread to regions of Japan outside of Edo, eventually taking on new shapes to suit the local geography.

Today, regions throughout Japan are represented by their own distinctive kite traditions and kite flying remains a popular pastime in Japan. They can be seen decorating the skies to welcome the coming of spring and on special occasions such as Childrens Day, when giant carp kites are on display.

Flying in from Tokyo, Mikio Toki will give a personal introduction of his kites and demonstrate his craft at the opening reception of his exhibition on 10 July.

Parko Techni 2019

Shimmering silver light cascading down the face of a carpark, activated by light and breeze, is just one of the amazing art installations being featured.

Also on show will also be a giant animated digital quilt that remixes the history of Sydney Olympic Park.

4 fabulous art installations will be displayed as part of the Parko Techni 2019. The collection showcases an interesting mix of artists including important figures in contemporary art practice Mandy Schone-Salter and Gary Deirmendjian, as well as mixed media artist James Voller and digital animator James Price.

Gary Deirmendjians silver cascade is a site-specific intervention of high kinetic and light sensitivity, affixed to the facade of P1 Car Park, directly above the main pedestrian Entry/Exit. On approach from any given direction, silver cascade presents a multilevel outpouring of shimmering silvery runoff that is activated by breeze and light, cascading unevenly and in great volume down the Car Parks facade.

James Prices DArcys Digital Dream Quilt is a 3-minute looped animation that remixes the history of the Sydney Olympic Park community into a giant digital quilt. The work, created specifically for the Pullman Hotel projection site, consists of animated panels that together, form a long, vertical scrolling quilt. The animation begins as we watch DArcy Wentworth settle into sleep under his family quilt and the camera travels down Wentworths quilt as he dreams, sharing the story of the area in a single moment in time.

The exhibition compliments the 50 other pieces of public art at Sydney Olympic Park, which boasts the largest collection of large-scale urban art within a single precinct in Australia.

I Met a Survivor
more_vert

This exhibition of photographs by award-winning photographer Nadine Saacks captures intimate moments shared between Holocaust survivors and children too young to understand or grapple with the Holocaust.

The generation of Holocaust survivors is dwindling and when todays young children are old enough to have a conversation about the Holocaust, they may not be able to actually meet a survivor and hear their testimony.

Introducing the Holocaust to young children can be difficult, but these photos, one day, can be a way to start that conversation. When these children, who are representative of all children, are of an age to learn about the Holocaust, they will have these photos to look back on, to make the connection, and say I met a survivor.

Our 2019 Muse 10 Aboriginal artists
Their muse Country, culture, identity

It is our privilege to exhibit 10 very talented and impressive artists as MUSE @ Tarongas creative force to celebrate NAIDOC. This years NAIDOC focus is Voice. Treaty. Truth. And Taronga is proud to supporting the voice and stories of the 10 Aboriginal artists for MUSE. Through their own sense of design, rhythm, language, colour and movement they find different ways to share stories of who they are and their traditional lands. The artists share personal and cultural insights told through contemporary and traditional art making processes; these stories are grown from the unique understanding and connection which Aboriginal people have to Country, which Aboriginal peoples have had for more than 65,000 years. Our 2019 MUSE artists come from Wiradjuri, Bundjalung, Wongaibon, Gadigal, Gumbaynggirr, Awabakal, Wongkumara, Yankunytjatjara/Kokatha and Yuwaalarary/Gamilaraay.

Taronga as a canvas. Taronga acknowledges Cammeraigal Country on which it resides and pays respect to Elders past, present and future.

Country is a living entity and for Aboriginal peoples their deep spiritual connection to Country is at the very core of all that they are and their art manifests from this. MUSE @ Taronga - NAIDOC is an exciting outdoor exhibition featuring a curated selection of original pieces that celebrates Indigenous art across varied mediums, reflecting the great diversity that exists within Aboriginal communities and the richness of shared stories and gathering for celebration and ceremony, empowering growth and inspiring one to create and make through the generations. There are so many ways art can extend our ability to perceive and understand the world sharing a narrative that will reach beyond the creative genius of the canvas and augment to a conversation highlighting Indigenous voice, treaty, truth and our role and responsibility to create a shared future together.

Peter Day, cited as one of the most prolific public artists in Australia by the National Association for Visual Arts, has an exciting exhibition coming up called BeacheSANDeserts.

Peter is the artist behind the two largest murals in the southern hemisphere and has been creating outstanding art professionally for over 45 years. Most famously, Peters career involves the expert creation of over 200 public artworks, some of which required budgets of over $100,000, leading to his achievement of the 2009 Canterbury and Bankstown Business Achiever Award.

Silhouette: The Body of Nature
more_vert
close

When autumn comes to Australia the light changes. Shadows harden. Details crystallise. And the depth and character of foliage so often flattened by the sun begins to dance in a silver realm. To anyone who thinks we have no seasons, look to our artists or just look up at the sky: pearlescent in a brooding swathe of greys. In winter the landscape has a rare moment of introspection and adopts a mutable quietude. The sky is still blue, but not as brightly so. Rivers frost. Branches pierce pale clouds. And the character of trees and grasses change imperceptibly.

This subtlety is captured Silhouette: The Body of Nature. In a collective grace, the palette in many of these works is paler and the patterns of nature more pronounced. A group show, Silhouette: The Body of Nature brings together artists working across ceramics, painting and prints.

Artists include Marika Varady, Susanna Chen Chow, Phillip Russell, Shannon Garson, Jane Canfield, Luke Wagner, Jo Darvall, Kwirak Choung, Barbara Goldin, Judith Ringger, Suvira McDonald.

Leonardo Matkevich

Lumenography lumenograph, are terms I have adopted to identify my original procedure that delivers proofs, ie prints, of a process just as etching delivers an etching or lithography a lithograph.

My prints are not reproductions of a pre-existing artwork but proofs of visual composing at the moment of invention.

Direct drawing, painting, texture and mark making are executed on animation cells. Photo transparencies along with maquette, organic materials, cut-outs and glass mattes are my base palette. A light table and overhead projector are my field of play, a projection screen my virtual canvas where the alchemy of collage manifests.

A digital camera captures, selectively, moments in the flux and flow of making from the screen. An inkjet printer, my virtual press, delivers a monochrome proof from the camera, at size, that is subsequently hand-coloured and re-recorded digitally to be printed out and/or editioned.

All the digital avenues taken were used as conduits only. All components of the projected elements are autobiographical. No CGI, Photoshop, or the like were used. This is my New Printmaking.

Leonard Matkevich (1970 1995 Head, Senrio Head, Printmaking, East Sydney Tech Art School).

Caught Stealing: The Art of Misappropriation
more_vert

The National Art School presents Caught Stealing: The Art of Misappropriation. The exhibition turns the spotlight on a posse of Australian contemporary artists who engage in theft as a creative strategy, from Fiona Hall, Louise Paramor, Destiny Deacon, Hany Armanious, Soda_Jerk and The Avalanches to Joan Ross.

From the Dadaists redeploying everyday objects as art to the music sampling at the core of rap and hip hop, the act of plundering with artistic licence has a long history.

Stealing things is a glorious occupation, particularly in the art world. Malcolm McLaren.

Caught Stealing looks at a distinctly Australian approach to creative larceny, celebrating artists whose work deals in reappropriation, re-evaluation and revelation.

There are examples of copying and formal experimentation with found materials in art that go back thousands of years, but this exhibition celebrates the artists who deliberately get
caught in the act, says exhibition curator and NAS lecturer Jaime Tsai. Their strategy of theft is a recognised and acknowledged aspect of their work.

Caught Stealing (the title itself stolen from the 1990 Janes Addiction song) also nods to the history of NAS, which occupies the site of the old Darlinghurst Gaol. From 1841 to 1914, the prison enforced harsh discipline and capital punishment. From 1922, the art school has nurtured creativity and social engagement.

The building where the exhibition hangs was first used to incarcerate male prisoners, including several notorious bushrangers, who were themselves hung.

Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. Jim Jarmusch.

Since the invention of the gramophone and the record by Jewish inventor Emil Berliner, vinyl and shellac records became the sound carriers of global experiences of the 20th century.

Music has always been central to Jewish tradition and culture, from synagogue music and Yiddish theatre to Jewish folk music and Jewish punk artists who gained rebel status. In Australia, Jewish musicians have also made significant contributions to Australias musical life.

Visitors to Jukebox Jewkbox! A Century on Shellac and Vinyl will be taken on a journey of the senses through tunes from cantorial to punk genres, and walls of hundreds of vibrant record covers, to unfold a surprising history of a universal language.

Whether you have a penchant to listen in to music the modern or old fashioned way, you can take some time to enjoy your favourite tracks.

Cartographica: Sydney on the map
more_vert
close

Cartography, the art and science of making maps, has its origins in ancient civilisation. Until the 20th century and the proliferation of satellite technology, our ability to navigate land, sea and sky relied on human powers of observation and an understanding of the patterns of terrestrial, maritime and celestial landscapes.

The Gadigal people and the surrounding clans of the Eora Nation have navigated this place we now call Sydney for tens of thousands of years. More recently, it has been mapped by Europeans and is now photographed from space for use on our personal devices.

This exhibition brings together a series of reproduced maps with a focus on Sydney, captured through the cartographic traditions of mapmakers.

It is a fascinating account of the factors that have shaped our city, highlighting some of the many different ways mapmakers have documented its evolution and guided our journeys.
