Beyond the Veil | Olsen Gruin

The next exhibition to be held in our New York gallery – Olsen Gruin is ‘Beyond the Veil’, curated by Adam Knight.

No doubt many of the bigwigs in town for all the art stars, megagalleries and super-auctions, missed maybe the best secret show in New York at the moment, this six-artist exhibition of Australian Aboriginal women painters curated by the president of the Aboriginal Art Association of Australia — a show that gives us a breathtaking small survey of what critic Robert Hughes (who in almost every case except this I disagreed with) called “the last great art movement of the twentieth century.” Start with the tremendous late Emily Kame Kngwarreye, who started painting in her 70s, but whose strangely structured, still amorphous compositions of smears, dots, daubs, and squiggles create rippling worlds, undergrowth, river scenes, and complex cosmic interior space; and contrast her Rothko-like ruminations to the more detailed, pictorial, and symbolic images created by Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi, and then to a mind-blowing group effort made by a collective of women that looks like a magic-carpet quilt for the spirit. It’s time for these artists and many others to be shown in and collected by museums, placed in context, installed for good in permanent collections along with other such “outsider” and “self-taught” artists, and to finally scrap our sick, desolated, apartheid-like systematic exclusion of any but “insider” artists.

Nicholas Harding | Art of Music

ART OF MUSIC is one of the most talked about fundraisers on the Sydney event circuit.  There is no other like it.  Presented by Jenny Morris, ART OF MUSIC combines both visual arts and music.  Held every two years, a group of Australia’s top artists come together to create an original exhibition where each artist chooses an iconic Australian/NZ song to inspire a piece of artwork.  The artwork is then auctioned during a gala dinner in the spectacular Grand Court of the Art Gallery of NSW.

All proceeds go to Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, an inspirational charity that use the power of music to transform lives.

Congratulations to Nicholas Harding on his participation in the event with his work :
