Launch of SCA October Exhibitions and Events
The Sydney College of the Arts October exhibitions and events program will open on Wednesday 5 October, 6 to 8pm. Highlights of the opening night include WHEN2050, Pulp Tongue, Where the Grass is Greener Missing Queen and a special animated projection across the rooftops of SCA.
WHEN2050 allows visitors to interact with 3D projections of future architectural designs and become immersed in a virtual world of students’ visions for sustainable living. This year’s MacICT Virtual World project highlights the work of Year 10 students from Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design. Mentored by architects Richard Goodwin and Russell Lowe, these students have created 3D prototypes of living spaces for the year 2050 in a virtual environment.
Where the Grass is Greener, an exhibition by PhD candidate, Vilma Bader, is a rejection of the representational function of art; it nonetheless holds fast to the object. The synthesis of conceptual thought and the equivalent description of reality fullfills an entirely traditional function of art.
Missing Queen, an exhibition by Master of Fine Arts candidate, Sepideh Farzam, is about the game of chess and its metaphorical relationship to patriarchy as a system of power in cultural and historical societies like Persia (ancient Iran).
Pulp Tongue, curated by Stuart Bailey, features the work of Dan Arps, Sarah Goffman, Matt Hinkley, Emily Hunt, Ben Lang, David Noonan, Leigh Rigozzi, John Spiteri and Alex Vivian. Pulp Tongue draws together a range of artists working in Australia and internationally, who employ collage, printmedia and drawing as a central concern of their practice. The work is characterized by a fractured approach to imagery that is broken and rearranged, scrapped then reused. The exhibition identifies a strand of contemporary practice whose concerns are central to the Printmedia Studio at SCA.
