A shipping container on the ACCA forecourt will house a series of weekly exhibitions from ACCA’s talented pool of artist volunteers and gallery staff, from October through November.
This year there’ll be live bed-side therapy sessions, paintings inspired by Google Maps, a project that explores the commodification of creative output as well as new photography and sculptural works.
Week 1: 14 – 18 October: Lucie McIntosh engages with techniques of abstraction and explores the materiality of print to create a series of photographs that explore issues around the authenticity of photographic representation.
Week 2: 21 – 25 October: Hana Vasak has recast and reshaped a pregnant abdomen in porcelain and juxtaposes the form with a collection of rocks to create sculptures that draw on the duality of the body and nature.
Week 3: 27 October – 1 November: Lorilee Yang will present a series of paintings and booklets inspired by Google map screenshots of various locations around the world named ‘Paradise’.
Week 4: 4 – 8 November: Bianca Tainsh will explore the commodification of creative output by inviting a series of commercial artists to create a logo for a fictional business.
Week 5: 11 – 15 November: Inez de Vega will invite passers by to get into bed with her alter ego Lillian Temple-Dumble for some serious street counseling, broadcast live and loud throughout the ACCA precinct.
