SYDNEY CONTEMPORARY
Carriageworks
13 - 16 September 2018
Booth E18 + IC09 for Glenn Barkley

Sullivan+Strumpf is delighted to participate in Sydney Contemporary 2018 (Booth E18) with a presentation of new and recent works by Tony Albert, Sydney Ball, Glenn Barkley, Karen Black, Barbara Cleveland, Sam Leach, Lindy Lee, eX de Medici, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Dawn Ng, Baden Pailthorpe, Alex Seton, Grant Stevens and Angela Tiatia.

A highlight of the presentation is Sydney Ball's Chromix Lumina 14, a large-scale work from the artist's Infinex series, his final and never-before-seen body of work. Realised in automotive enamel on aluminium, a method of manufacturing the artist devised out of physical necessity at the age of 81, Chromix Lumina 14 represents the pinnacle of Ball's lifeling research into the relationship between form, colour and light.

In addition, no fewer than six S+S artists have been invited to participate in the curated sections of the fair. Angela Tiatia is included in Video Contemporary, curated by Kelly Gellatly; Karen Black has collaborated with Handpicked Wines to create an immersive-art-experience-cum-bar; Glenn Barkley will create a cabinet of curiosities filled with new vessel forms and collages; while Lindy Lee, Alex Seton and Tim Silver will present solo presentations for Installation Contemporary, curated by Nina Miall.

Panel Discussion:
The Waves: Gender, Representation, and the Market Saturday, 15 September 2018, 10am at S+S Sydney, 799 Elizabeth Street, Zetland. Featuring Barbara Cleveland (artist collective), Christine Dean (artist), Angela Tiatia (artist), Julie Ewington (curator, writer & broadcaster) and Ursula Sullivan (co-director of S+S, Sydney & Singapore) on the panel, moderated by Kate Britton (curator).

Artist Talks:
Saturday, 15 September 2018, 12.30pm at the fair, starting at Booth IC09 and following a series of other talks at Booth E18.

THE WAVES: a group exhibition upping at the shores of heteronormative sanctity
Curated by Kate Britton
Sullivan+Strumpf | Sydney
18 August - 15 September 2018

Opening reception on Saturday, 18 August, 3 - 5pm
Curator talk in conversation with Diana Baker Smith from Barbara Cleveland and Thea Perkins at 4pm

Including artists: Karen Black, Ohni Blu, Polly Borland, Barbara Cleveland, Christine Dean, Joanna Lamb, Lindy Lee, eX de Medici, Sanné Mestrom, Judy Millar, Dawn Ng, Thea Perkins, Katy B. Plummer, Justine Youssef & Leila El Rayes, Hiromi Tango, Angela Tiatia and Jemima Wyman

The Waves borrows its title from Virginia Woolf's novel of the same name, in which many voices unite in a single narrative. This exhibition likewise unites many voices to tell a single yet multivalent story. This story is about what happens in a white cube occupied by women and non-binary voices, and why we should be listening.

The Waves brings a diverse group of artists into a conversation about feminism, bodies, access to and occupation of space, collective action and gestures of intersectionality. In making their work, each of these artists chip away at the walls and barriers that are thrown up by patriarchal systems, biological determinism, trans-exclusionary feminism, colonialism - the list goes on.

The feminist project has been characterised by waves, a lapping at the shores of heteronormative sanctity. The works presented from these artists engage with different aspects of this project: political, social and labour-based action; reclamation and celebration of diverse bodies and identities; intersectionality; and an emergent collective anger - #metoo.

In bringing together selected works from Sullivan+Strumpf's roster of artists with guest artists, The Waves establishes new lines of sight between the work of diverse women and non-binary people.

ANNOUNCEMENT

17/06/2018

NOW REPRESENTING: BARBARA CLEVELAND

Sullivan+Strumpf is delighted to announce its representation of Barbara Cleveland.

Barbara Cleveland (Diana Baker Smith, Frances Barrett, Kate Blackmore, Kelly Doley) is an Australian artist collective working on Gadigal land (Sydney). Previously working under the title of Brown Council, the collective transitioned to Barbara Cleveland in 2016. Taking their name from the mythic feminist performance artist (Barbara Cleveland) - whom they recovered from the margins of Australian art history - and who has been a key feature in their work since 2010.

Barbara Cleveland's projects are informed by queer and feminist methodologies that draw on the historical lineages of both the visual and performing arts. Their recent video and performance works are deliberations on history and memory as embodied action, as fiction, as mode of collaboration.

Barbara Cleveland's projects have been presented at Hayward Gallery (London), 20th Biennale of Sydney, 2018 Adelaide Biennale, Art Gallery of NSW (Sydney), Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), Artspace (Sydney), The Physics Room (Christchurch), Australian Experimental Art Foundation (Adelaide), Performance Space (Sydney), National Museum of Modern and Contemporary art (Seoul) and Monash University Museum of Art (Melbourne).

Works by Barbara Cleveland are held in numerous public collections throughout Australia, including Artbank, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Campbelltown Arts Centre, Sydney; Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne; Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney.
