Explore Like a Wheel That Turns: The 2022 Macfarlane Commissions with artists Betty Muffler, Jahnne Pasco-White, Jason Phu, Lucina Lane, JD Reforma, Nadia Hernández and Gian Manik.
Showing at ACCA until 4 September 2022, Like a Wheel That Turns is the third edition of a multi-year partnership with The Macfarlane Fund that supports the commissioning of ambitious new projects by contemporary emerging to mid-career artists. Like a Wheel That Turns reflects upon painting practices which extend beyond the frame and from the realm of the studio into the world at large, through the work of Nadia Hernández, Lucina Lane, Gian Manik, Betty Muffler, Jahnne Pasco-White, Jason Phu, JD Reforma and Esther Stewart.
Acknowledging painting’s ability to speak across generations – to personal, social and familial connections and histories, as much as to cultural and artistic references and legacies – and to accommodate multiple modes of time and perception simultaneously, Like a Wheel That Turns brings together a diverse group of artists whose work might collectively derive from a studio-based practice, but who share an interest in the intersection between painting and other materials, forms or disciplines, including architecture, literature, performance, ecology, music, healing and the wider field of human relations.
