ACCA is proud to present Between Waves, which continues the Yalingwa exhibition series devoted to highlighting the significance of First Nations contemporary art practice in the Southeast within a national context. The exhibition navigates the intersections and collisions between art, culture, and technologies.
Between Waves highlights concepts related to light, time and vision – and the idea of shining a light on our times – expressed by the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung word ‘Yalingwa’. The exhibition presents the work of ten artists and collectives, with new commissions which explore visible and invisible energy fields, internal and external worlds, thinking and feeling, listening and seeing. Many of the works consider material memory within objects and places, and how these influence encounters with self, eachother and the world. Art forms span video, installation, poetry, projection, photography, painting, sculpture, sound, printmaking, and a digital commission to illuminate the interconnected web of what can and cannot be seen.
Artists: Maree Clarke, Dean Cross, Brad Darkson, Matthew Harris, James Howard, Hayley Millar Baker, Jazz Money, Mandy Quadrio, Cassie Sullivan and this mob.
