Click to enlargeJOHN NIXON : VARIOUS PAINTINGS ON VARIOUS COLOURS
Feb 17 - Apr 7, 2018
Australian artist John Nixon has been exhibiting his version of non-objective art in Australia and internationally since the early 1970s, exploring the principals of minimal and geometric abstraction to convey a sense of their possibilities. The use of a group of primary and secondary colours, art and non-art materials, and a strong relationship with the surrounding space are key to Nixon’s personalisation of an art form that originated in the early 20th century. Nixon’s motivations as an artist were originally informed by late 1960s minimal art, conceptual art and Arte Povera, then channelled through the early movements of Russian Constructivism, Futurism and Fauvism – movements which have sought to challenge and re-define the function and purpose of art – and which inform his ongoing exploration.

DIALOGUES WITH A COLLECTION
Jun 30 - Sep 15, 2018
Dialogues with A Collection presents a stage of relationships between artists and the collection of Laure Genillard. Eleven artists have been invited to engage with different works from the collection with either a newly constructed or an existing work, creating a trail of impromptu correspondences across the gallery space.
 
The collection on display is symptomatic of the gallery’s thirty-year history and the artist-gallery kinships that ensued, along with other acquisitions independent of the gallery programme. Together the collection and their chosen correspondents represent the aesthetic and conceptual ethos of the Laure Genillard Gallery and readdress the desire to test art’s ability to be both communicative and autonomous.
