Exploring BigCit

19 June 2015 - 2 August 2015

Survey of artists from the Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives residency, which attracts and supports the professional development of artists from many and varied fields, including visual arts, performing arts, literature, music, photography, film, and hybrid arts. Because of its location, many BigCi artists in residence are interested in projects that explore environmental or ecological issues, while others use the beautiful natural surroundings as a source of creativity for a variety of different artistic pursuits.

In 2014, Hawkesbury Regional Gallery began developing and supporting artist residencies at BigCi for artists to develop new work to be included in our exhibition program. For Exploring BigCi the gallery has supported three residencies: for Kath Fries, from Sydney; Paul Mosig & Rachel Peachy, from The Blue Mountains, and our first international resident, Nandita Mukand from Singapore. As part of the exhibition, Nandita will be making a site-specific work during her residency, and completing the work in the gallery in the week leading up to the opening.

Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections

7 August 2015 - 4 October 2015

Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections is a MCA Australia touring exhibition of over 70 artworks by Australian and international artists collected by the University of Sydney and the Museum of Contemporary Art during a period spanning more than 50 years. The exhibition provides a broad overview of photographic practice by artists, many who have been recognised as contributing significantly to critical debates in art from the late 1960s to the present day, exploring the influence of photographic theory and technique in contemporary art. Key genres are explored including documentary photography, serial photography, performance photography and the manipulation of the photographic image. Artists include Julie Rrap, Ed Ruscha, Tracey Moffatt, Ricky Maynard, Rosemary Laing and Barbara Kruger.

Work, rest and play

4 December 2015 - 7 February 2016

The subject of play is explored in all its colorful variations in this group exhibition designed to amuse and delight, and an opportunity to ponder (for those who wish to go there) the role of play in life and art.

It was David Hockney (the influential British artist) who said, 'People tend to forget that play is serious', a sentiment with which exhibition curator, Elissa Blair, is in complete agreement. 'When it comes to art, play can mean experimenting, stepping into different realities, treating viewers as playmates or even changing identities,' says Elissa, who has gathered together some of the most exciting contemporary artists of the day to help elucidate the theme, including:

Tully Arnot, Jaqueline Bradley, Michaela Gleave, James Newton, Simone Rosenbauer, Sally Smith, Niomi Sands, Andrew Sullivan, Simon Yates and Louise Zhang
