ACCA’s Arts Club

08 Mar 2018

ACCA’s Arts Club Image

Designed for the curious minds and those with a passion for art and conversation, Art Club is a regular meeting group organised by ACCA that explores and discusses and ins and outs of contemporary art.

ACCA’s exhibitions, offsite projects and studio visits are all used as starting points to explore and discuss.

“Art Club is a really convivial, friendly way for anyone interested in art to get behind the scenes,” ACCA public programs manager Anabelle Lacroix said.

“We always meet around a glass of wine and cheese and encourage everyone to join in and not be afraid to express their thoughts, ask questions and share ideas.”

The group will meet eight times during the year, on Thursdays from 6-8pm, with members of the ACCA artistic team and guest artists and curators.

Program:

April 5 – Mutlu Çerkez 1988-2065 at Monash University Museum of Art

An exhibition and monograph that surveys the art and life of Turkish Cypriot-Australian artist Mutlu Çerke. Çerkez has a significant impact on the Australian and international art worlds, with his work incorporating traditions of conceptual art, minimalism and monochrome painting.

May 10 – Dwelling Poetically: Mexico City, a case study at ACCA

Mexico City is one of America’s most populous urban centres, Latin America’s strongest economy and a node of rich and potent cultural production. Authored by the city as much as they are authors of it, the city’s artists are crucial factors in its development and cultivation. Dwelling Poetically is intended as a portrait of the city itself, and a case study of one of the capitals of the 21st century.

June 7 – Black and White and Red All Over at Justin Art House Museum

Justin Art House Museum is an initiative of Charles and Leah Justin, passionate collectors of contemporary art. Through their private house museum, they hope to share both their collection and their passion for art with the public. The collection includes over 250 works collected over 40 years, exploring and challenging concepts of polarities.

July 26 – Yalingwa Indigenous Commissions at ACCA

The inaugural Yalingwa exhibition will highlight the significance of family, community and humour in contemporary Aboriginal life. Curated by Hannah Presley, the exhibition will reflect the love, support and commitment of family and the cultural relationships that make us healthy and happy.

August 23 – City galleries and/or artist studios

Locations to be advised closer to the date.

September 20 – Eva Rothschild at ACCA

The annual ACCA International presents the work of Irish-born, London-based artist Eva Rothschild. Influenced by minimalist sculptural forms of the 1960s and 1970s, classical architecture, spirituality and the nature of visual perception and materiality, Rothschild is best known for her abstract sculptural works constructed from leather, paper, Plexiglas, jesmonite, steel and wood.

November 15 – All the World’s a Stage: MacFarlane Commissions preview at ACCA or offsite artist studio

An exhibition that consists of five especially commissioned projects by artists who seek to construct alternative narratives and worlds through illusionary, cinematic and theatrical devices including scripting, costumes, props and mise-en-scene.

Pricing:

$800 – Yearly membership

$700 – Returning Art Clubbers

$500 – ACCA’s exhibitions only

$450 – Half-year pass
