Paul Yore’s ‘WORD MADE FLESH’ is now showing at Carriageworks as part of Sydney Festival and Sydney World Pride.
‘Paul Yore: WORD MADE FLESH’ is a new architecturally-scaled installation, anarchically composed of improvised makeshift structures, mixed media sculpture and found objects, collage and assemblage, painting, video, and pulsating sound and light. Conceived as a cacophonous, kaleidoscopic ‘gesamtkunstwerk’, ‘WORD MADE FLESH’ imagines a queer alternative reality.
This work has been curated by Max Delany, in collaboration with Paul Yore and Devon Ackerman, and will be on display at Carriageworks from 5 January to 26 February 2023. Visit the Carriageworks website for more information.

The expansion of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney – titled the Sydney Modern Project – has now been officially launched with the gallery unveiling nine Australian and international artists that have been commissioned to create works as part of the build.
For this commission, Richard Lewer went behind the scenes to capture the stories and portraits of people involved in the design and construction of the Art Gallery’s new building. His multipanel painting and suite of drawings celebrate the labour and personalities of those who have helped build Sydney’s newest cultural and architectural landmark.
Richard Lewer's works can be viewed in the North Building, lower level 1 (painting), from 3 December 2022 and the South Building, lower level 2, in From Here, for Now (drawings), from 5 November 2022.

We are thrilled to share that Sera Waters’ exhibition ‘Future Traditions’ is now open to the public at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
In this second iteration of the Guildhouse Fellowship, South Australian artist Sera Waters imagines a new future for us all – one where ancient textile traditions can craft hope in the face of climate change.
Waters is well known for her revival of endangered ways of making, whereby age-old embroidery techniques are restored to comment on our complex and often confronting colonial histories. In this exhibition, the past paves the way for a new future and by reclaiming the traditions that our great-great-great-grandmothers performed we can move, together, towards an alternative liveable future.
‘Future Traditions’, presented in Gallery 9, hinges on community and those who have kept this knowledge alive over generations. A shared space, the exhibition includes experiments, artefacts, texts, events, workshops and works of art.
The exhibition will be on display from 26 Nov 2022 to 16 Apr 2023.

Hugo Michell Gallery welcomes the addition of Zaachariaha Fielding to our represented artists!
Zaachariaha Fielding is a multi-disciplinary artist originally from the Mimili Community in the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, currently working out of the APY Collective on Kaurna land/Adelaide. Having established himself as a critically acclaimed musician, the frontman for duo Electric Fields, Fielding is compelled to create art in whichever form is available to him.
About his work, Fielding shares: “I was raised on desert country in the eastern Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands, and come from a long line of multi-disciplinary artists. I am compelled to make work that honours the visual language of my ancient culture. The iconography reflects the way I live my culture in the present, as a constant feature of my world, and visualises how I interact with the beings that populate the Tjukurpa I’ve inherited.”
Fielding’s work has been recognised in major art awards, most notably as a finalist in the Ramsay Art Prize at Art Gallery of South Australia and the NATSIAAs Awards at Museum and Art Gallery of Northern Territory.
His work is currently held in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria and Artbank.
We congratulate Zaachariaha on his achievements and look forward to working together in the future!
