Another Wet City — Robert Baines: Metal in Cairns
Wednesday April 18 2012
Sandra Brown is Object’s Touring Coordinator. Tasked with managing installs and bump-outs around the country, her travels have recently included navigating floods in Wagga Wagga.
It seems like the rain and water are following me around the country! Just back from wet and soggy Cairns, where I was installing Robert Baines: Metal, which is another touring exhibition for the Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series.
Cairns Regional Art Gallery is a graceful old building in the heart of the city and is a very popular venue for locals and tourists alike. Object has a great relationship with this gallery, with a number of our touring shows going there. The most recent was Menagerie: Contemporary Indigenous Sculpture last year, and next year HYPERCLAY: Contemporary Ceramics will also show there.
Object Exhibitions on the Move
Thursday March 29 2012
The Jeff Mincham: Ceramics exhibition is on a train to Bunbury, WA, and is currently somewhere in the middle of the Nullarbor. The Robert Baines: Metal exhibition is travelling north to Cairns Regional Gallery, and its travel and install will hopefully be cyclone/water free. Both exhibitions will open at the end of April.
Object’s touring exhibitions are truly national, and we certainly do support the Regional Galleries from east to west, and north to south. Closer to (our) home, don’t forget that Menagerie: Contemporary Indigenous Sculpture is currently out at Dubbo Regional Art Gallery, and HYPERCLAY: Contemporary Ceramics is showing at Watson Arts Centre, ACT.
