Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process

We are excited to announce the opening of two major solo exhibitions next week at PICA!

Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process is the first survey exhibition of one of Australia’s most rigorous conceptual artists. It brings together photography, video, installation, sound and performance works drawn from the artist’s early experimental practice of the 1970s through to his more recent focus on still and moving imagery in the 21st century.

The exhibition considers the relationship between culture and the environment, focusing on representations of landscape, national identity and the role of chance in determining these.

To be opened by Jenepher Duncan, Curator of Australian Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Opening Night: Derek Kreckler & Consuelo Cavaniglia

Consuelo Cavaniglia: in the distance a pool of light was not what it seemed

in the distance a pool of light was not what it seemed is an exhibition of new work created for PICA’s Westend Gallery. Sydney-based West Australian artist Consuelo Cavaniglia takes her latest works to a diffierent scale, creating a landscape of folded pavilions.

Cavaniglia combines drawings, mirrors and structures to construct disorienting interiors with cinematic undertones, offering up new perceptual situations within space, time and architecture.

Both exhibitions continue 29 August - 18 October 

Anime - Decibel

Anime is an immersive, experiential concert dedicated to ‘Animated Notation’, an emerging form of music notation where graphic instructions are put into action through interactive computing, video and lighting.
