Seven artists, three shared spaces, a series of exchanges about proximity and distance and the movements in between: a tactile collaboration, drawn together in time, stitch by stitch, line by line, stroke by stroke – a room of haptic knowledge; forging a connection, a hypothetical encounter between the infinitely remote and the intimately familiar – an approximation of human longing; a sense of kinship, boundaries are blurred, lines are crossed, the otherworldly and the everyday merge – distances are dissolved.
What will happen if marriage equality is legislated?
Margaret Court says Christmas will be cancelled. Tony Abbott says it’ll fundamentally change the fabric of society. Cory Bernadi says it’ll lead to people marrying their pets or even inanimate objects!
A group of artists imagine a future where all humans have their rights to love protected. Come see what rainbow-coloured hell these fiends have dreamed up!
For B-SIDE, BLINDSIDE will present a large scale exhibition of works for sale by our accomplished and significant alumni. Exactly half of the work in B-SIDE will be hidden. Each artwork on display in B-SIDE will be linked to a partner work (a b-side), which will be revealed only to the buyer.
As a fundraising exhibition B-SIDE will support the ongoing activity of BLINDSIDE into the future. For the past 14 years BLINDSIDE has provided a vibrant space for artists to test ideas and challenge conventions. B-SIDE will facilitate BLINDSIDE's continued program of experimental exhibitions, critical and engaging public programs, as well as support arts writers, curators and artists at all stages of their careers.
The opening celebratory event will be held on Thursday 2 November (think raffles, manic rushes to call dibs on artworks, music and wine).
