Sydney Contemporary 2013
10 -13 September 2012
Starkwhite will present a group show at the inaugural edition of Sydney Contemporary 2012. The lineup of artists includes: Billy Apple (NZ/US), Martin Basher (NZ/US), Rebecca Baumann (AUS), Whitney Bedford (US), Jae Hoon Lee (NZ/KR), Ross Manning (AUS), Seung Yul Oh (NZ/KR), John Reynolds (NZ), and Caroline Rothwell (AUS).
We will present a group show that represents the gallery’s Asia/Pacific focus – work by artists such as Billy Apple, Martin Basher and Whitney Bedford who have centres like Hong Kong and Shanghai on their international art map, as well as London, Berlin and New York, along with others like Jin Jiangbo and Jae Hoon Lee who layer their own cultural landscape on ours, giving it an inflection that allows us to look at it afresh through new cultural eyes. They will sit alongside a younger generation of artists like Seung Yul Oh who are producing work with an Asian sensibility that is shaping and defining the future direction of contemporary art in New Zealand. And we will present works by three Australian artists – Rebecca Baumann, Ross Manning and Caroline Rothwell.
Located in New Zealand on Auckland’s Karangahape Road, Starkwhite presents a programme of artists’ projects, exhibitions by represented and invited artists, independently curated exhibitions and occasional forays into new music and other interdisciplinary practices.
