PROUD exhibition opened at GE gallery
Last night I had the pleasure of opening the latest exhibition 'FOUND'at the Town Hall gallery. Above are examples of work by Lauren Berkowitz nd Donna Marcus respectively.
This is a very interesting exhibition by prominent Melbourne artists utilsing everyday materials to create an impressive array of exihibits.
Opens 10am Thursday 2 June and continues until 5pm Sunday 26 June
Glen Eira City Council’s annual thematic exhibition Found will feature sculptures, installations and assemblages by major contemporary Australian artists Lauren Berkowitz, Louise Paramor, Donna Marcus, Dani Marti and Carl Scrase, united by their experimentation with industrial, domestic and everyday materials.
Curated by Diane Soumilas, works that address current issues relating to contemporary life and consumer culture, recycling and our relationship with the environment, history, identity and memory will be included.
From small and large scale assemblages and sculptures utilising industrial materials and suburban utensils, to dynamic installations created from synthetic and everyday materials, the selection of works will engage viewers, providing a richly layered, immersive effect.
I would encourage everyone to attend this free event over the next few weeks
