9 X 5 NOW – Margaret Lawrence Gallery ART150 16 – 25 June 2017


Curator: Dr Elizabeth Gower

Gallery Opening Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 12:00pm – 5:00pm


More than 300 contemporary visual artists have contributed original artworks for the upcoming 9 X 5 NOW exhibition at the Victorian College of the Arts.

The ‘9 X 5’ title references the original exhibition of Impressionist works held at the Buxton Galleries in 1889 which included the work of key Australian Impressionist artists – Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, Frederick McCubbin and Charles Condor, all graduates from the National Gallery of Victoria Art School, the founding institution of the Victorian College of the Arts. The artworks were painted on cigar box lids and the title of the exhibition is derived from the dimensions of those works (nine inches by five inches).

The exhibition program also includes artist talks, tours, and a one-day symposium.

9 X 5 NOW is one of the highlights of ART150, a year-long program of events, interviews and expert commentary to celebrate 150 years of art in Melbourne at the VCA and its predecessor institutions – a lineage that began with the establishment of the National Gallery of Victoria Art School in 1867

The pricing of works from the 9 X 5 collection begins at $500, with funds raised going towards the establishment of the ART150 scholarship. Eftpos and credit card facilities will be available on site, for the convenience of those wishing to make a purchase.


Gallery 5 – c3 Contemporary Art Space April 2017


Eliza Dyball, Jeremy Eaton, Kate Golding, Will Heathcote, Shane Nicholas, Emanuel Rodriguez, Vivian Cooper Smith, Nathan Stolz and Siying Zhou


This exhibition brings together the work of eleven artists who are all undertaking research degrees at VCA. Despite working across painting, photography, sculptural and spatial practice, performance, video and animation, there’s considerable conceptual overlap and resonances throughout the group. Working within the heuristic academic environment allows common ground to be embraced in ways not readily available in everyday art practice. This exhibition is an opportunity to explore these shared interests through practice, curatorship and presentation. Rather than simply being a group display of individual artworks, the artists will trace lines and intersections through each other’s work, collaborating or responding, occupying common ground or contesting territory. It is an opportunity to expand learning and practice beyond the limitations of individual research or medium specific outcomes while also providing a space to experiment and develop ongoing concerns.

Craft Victoria Presents New Work by Will Heathcote



20° S 135° E

Opening 6pm Thursday 19 June 2014

Showing from 20 June to 26 July 2014
In Gallery Three, Craft 31 Flinders Lane Melbourne

Will Heathcote’s exhibition 20° S 135° E navigates and disrupts common conceptions of wilderness.

Through actions, sculptural intervention, site specific casting and photography, Heathcote aims to physically explore the territory between controlled and uncontrolled environments unearthing a wealth of loaded material in typical projections of the outback.

20° S 135° E is the primary outcome of a broader self-directed residency program in various locations throughout regional Australia. Working from a cattle station in central Northern Territory, 20° S 135° E presents a physical engagement with a specific piece of land in Australia’s centre – mapping, moulding and casting it into an entirely new state of being.

Hannah Raisin and Will Heathcote: Bark & Bristle
Friday 21 March – Saturday 12 April

Hannah Raisin and Will Heathcote’s exhibition Bark and Bristle playfully ponders the complex and diverse relationships between people and their surroundings. The work aims to physically explore the territory between controlled and uncontrolled environments, identifying a wealth of material in typical projections of the Australian outback. Operating both collaboratively and individually the artists will showcase a body of new work developed during recent months spent working in the broader Alice Springs region.

Hannah and Will will also be undertaking a Travelling Artist Studio Residency at Watch This Space during their exhibition dates. Hannah and Will’s project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
