# **Breaking News, a big hearty congrats Archie Moore and Ellie Buttrose !**

# **Archie Moore's kith and kin wins Golden Lion at Venice Biennale**

Creative Australia is delighted to announce that Archie Moore’s exhibition kith and kin at the Australia Pavilion has been awarded the prestigious Golden Lion for Best National Participation at La Biennale de Venezia 2024. This is the first time in history an Australian artist has received this accolade.

In kith and kin, Moore transforms the Australia Pavilion with an expansive, genealogical chart spanning 65,000 years. kith and kin is curated by Ellie Buttrose and commissioned by Creative Australia.

The artwork bridges the personal and the political. While many of the stories in kith and kin are specific to the artist’s family, they mirror narratives throughout the world. Through this lens Moore highlights our shared ancestry and humanity: through the interconnectedness of people, place and time.

Awarding the accolade, the jury of the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia said:

"In this quiet, impactful pavilion, Archie Moore worked for months to hand-draw in chalk a monumental First Nation family tree. Thus 65,000 years of history (both recorded and lost) are inscribed on the dark walls and ceiling, inviting viewers to fill in the blanks and grasp the inherent fragility of this mournful archive. The official documents drawn up by the State float in a moat of water. The result of Moore's intensive research, these documents reflect the high rates of incarceration of First Nations people.

"This installation stands out for its strong aesthetic, its lyricism and its invocation of a shared loss of an occluded past. With his inventory of thousands of names, Moore also offers a glimmer of the possibility of recovery."

On receiving this award, Archie Moore said:

"As the water flows through the canals of Venice to the lagoon, then to the Adriatic Sea, it then travels to the oceans and to the rest of the world – enveloping the continent of Australia – connecting us all here on Earth. Aboriginal kinship systems include all living things from the environment in a larger network of relatedness, the land itself can be a mentor or a parent to a child. We are all one and share a responsibility of care to all living things now and into the future.

“I am very grateful for this accolade; it makes me feel honoured to be rewarded for the hard work one does. I am grateful to everyone who has always been part of my journey – from my kith to my kin – to my Creative Australia team and everyone else back home and those of the Venice lagoon.”

Do we need more of these? Australia’s first wildlife land bridge then & now. The twin arch structure at Yelgun was installed during an upgrade of the Pacific Highway in north east NSW in 2002. A second land bridge was built during the same project 10 km to the north at Sleepy Hollow. Ecologists and other researchers monitored the bridges & recorded a host of species including rodents, snakes, lizards, wallabies, spotted-tail quoll, koala & even sugar gliders once the vegetation developed. Land bridges are the gold standard for providing wildlife habitat connectivity across road corridors. ... See MoreSee Less

# **NORTHERN RIVERS & TWEED COLLEAGUES, ZINESTERS & CREATIVES**

**KYOGLE READERS & WRITERS FESTIVAL AND BENJO KAZUE PRESENT *‘ZINES: THE EXHIBITION’* AT ROXY GALLERY IN KYOGLE. OPENING NIGHT FRIDAY APRIL 19TH**

From April 19th through May 26th 2024 Northern Rivers Artist, Writer and Zine Ambassador Benjo Kazue, in association with Kyogle Readers & Writers Festival present a major exhibition of zines, artbooks, DIY publications and similar works from local, national and international artists featuring Benjo Kazue, Holly English, Chris Lego, Paul Shields (Northern Rivers), Nat Blom, Luke You (Melbourne), Kate Dunn, Aphrodite Delaguiado (Sydney), Lee Mitchell (Blue Mountains), Aaron Cometbus (San Francisco) and others.

Opening night is Friday April 19th from 6pm. Free popcorn and free champagne is available, and a free screening of the seminal DIY art documentary *Beautiful Losers* will be screened from 630pm. This event is free.

Zines are independent publications about anything, made for love over profit, not bound by rules or censorship, with a prominent ethos on freedom, expression, accessibility and DIY ethics. Upward of 50 zines will be showcased in this first of its kind event in the Northern Rivers. Not your run-of-the-mill gallery exhibit, the Zine Exhibition presents the history and evolution of zines from the 1930s into today, displaying prints from 1930s zines, original publications from as far back as the 1970s (*Rolling Stone*, *Creem*) and into present day, all of which are encouraged to be taken off the wall and perused by gallery visitors. As educational as it is engaging, the exhibit is made for interaction.

Benjo Kazue, local zine-master, organiser of Byron Bay Print Fest, and a major curator of the event said, “It’s great to have zines being included in spaces that are generally reserved for what is (unfairly) considered more ‘serious’ or ‘highbrow’ art. Most galleries and exhibitions I visit you can’t stand too close to the art, there’s not a lot of talking or interaction… ironically, it’s a vibe that is not very conductive to creativity. At the Zine Exhibition, visitors are encouraged to flick through the art, engage with it, talk to their friend, tell the artist it sucked, and if they think they can make something better, there is a workshop and makers space set-up and ready to go with all the materials you need to make your own and add it to the space. All we ask is that when you have finished reading or using something, you leave it where you found it so the next person can enjoy it.”

Included in the exhibition is a free zine table where visitors are welcome to take as many zines as they can carry, multiple audio-visual displays of zine burials, zine burning, zine eating, zine soup making and an assorted of zine documentaries from zine fairs across the country.

“While some zines are amazing pieces of art that really comment on the human condition, some zines are just about why someone loves their cat,” Benjo says. “They’re erratic and genius and as unpredictable and as accessible as they are odd, dynamic and perpetually pertinent… and as a whole collective they represent a largely unknown and misunderstood part of art, literary, music and cultural history.”

The exhibition will run through the Kyogle Readers and Writers Festival on May 17th and 18th, and will act as the main venue for the festival.

Benjo will also be running FREE zine making workshops in the space as part of the exhibition from 11-1230 on Saturday April 27th, May 4th and May 11th in association with Kyogle Readers & Writers Festival and Kyogle District Arts Council, and again on May 17th at Kyogle Library as part of the Kyogle Readers & Writers Festival. Workshops suitable for ages 8+. Come to one or come to all.

Roxy Gallery is located upstairs at 161 Summerland Way, Kyogle.

Opening times:

Wednesday – Saturday 10am – 3pm

Sunday – 10am – 2pm

# **📷 VENICE BIENNALE 2024 - OPENING THIS WEEK - CHOOKAS TO ARTIST ARCHIE MOORE & CURATOR ELLIE BUTTROSE** ...

# **Repost | Creative Australia **

# **Ciao from Venezia – install is almost complete!**
# 📷Archie Moore and Ellie Buttrose landed in Venice in late February to begin installation, and quickly became immersed in a rare season of ‘caigo’ (Venetian word for the mist that rises from the lagoon waters, welcoming Venetian fishermen at dawn).

Despite the sun being an occasional visitor, and having no time to pick up a fishing rod, they're focused and in high spirits, as they work with installers to complete the exhibition.

Archie and Ellie look forward to welcoming you next week for the opening.

Until then, we encourage you to explore:

* First Nations **languages revival initiatives**

As an extension of Moore's research into identity, heritage, language, racism, and the universality of the human family, the talks will also feature global speakers discussing language revival techniques, combating carceral injustices, and exploring art's role in addressing these issues.

Our Investing in Queensland Women grants are supporting survivors of domestic and family violence (DFV) to facilitate healing and foster connection through art. 🎨

Broken to Brilliant TM used their #IQWgrant to host their Empowerment Through Art exhibition; a moving display of textiles, ceramic, acrylic and poetry, created by survivors of DFV and hosted by Art From The Margins.

Do you have an idea for an event, resource or project that would benefit women and girls across Queensland and help us achieve gender equality?

Head to our website to find out more (link in comments 🔗).

# fractionate

Courtney Pedersen and Charles Robb
Wreckers Artspace
Thu 4 April – Sat 27 April 2024 (closed on Fri 12 April)
Open Thu-Sat 12-3pm or by appointment: c.robb@qut.edu.au
Closing event 6-8pm Sat 27 April

In 1994, Courtney Pedersen and Charles Robb began an artistic collaboration that has spanned almost thirty years. Over that time, they have accumulated a large store of materials and equipment that rests as a shadow record of their processes and investigative interests. This project considers the invisible cost burdens experienced by artists over the duration of their careers, while also providing a meditative space for ‘taking stock’ of a creative life.

While Pedersen and Robb’s collaboration continues, fractionate constitutes an aesthetic/processual resolution of that thirty years, as the artists systematically dice the residues of their previous studio lives, arranging and rearranging the resulting modules, before finally disposing of them all into a rental skip - the final module in which all residual material must eventually find itself.

fractionate is a celebration of the inevitable forces of material entropy and a response to the peculiar economics of art practice.

Courtney Pedersen and Charles Robb are Meanjin-based artists and academics. This project has been realised with support from the QUT School of Creative Practice.

## Do we need a new, dedicated, inclusive and safe queer and trans memory space (in PHYSICAL SITES) in Brisbane Meeanjin and in complementary Queensland regional settings? If so Sydney's newly opened Qtopia may JUST be a good example to adopt. FYI;

**Qtopia Sydney** is a welcoming and inclusive space devoted to the memory, education and celebration of the unique histories and lived experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community. The Substation in Taylor Square is one of four buildings in our campus that will be used to showcase Queer history and talent, amplifying Queer voices through exhibitions, performances and corporate and education programs.

The space launched with an exhibition curated by Bertie Blackman - ‘130BPM: Soundtrack to a Revolution’ - a celebration of a cross section of incredible Queer musical talent.

The exhibition, a testament to the ingenuity, joy, passion, and immense creativity of Queer Australian musicians from the 1970s to the present, showcases fourteen potent songs that mark important moments in the ongoing journey of Queer Australian music.

The artists involved were each asked to pick a song of theirs that they felt spoke most strongly to their Queer identity, and the result is electric. From Judy Small Queering the parochial narratives of 1970s regional Australian life to Mo’Ju in 2018 staunchly celebrating their non-binary, Waridjuri and Filipino identity, this is cultural history in the making.

I attempted to visit this "home of Queer Culture" recently & was personally offended by the overpriced entry fee & "gatekeeper" style reception I received when attempting enter my own histories "keeping place"! This attempt to RAINBOW WASH our history/Culture from a organisation sponsored by the very same propagandists of trans/homophobia & oppression IS NOT THE MODEL I would wont to see replicated here or anywhere! 🍍✊🏽✨️🍉

Thank you for sharing 🙂 I wonder what the *needs* of our diverse, fragmented, multiply oppressed creative and artistic QT/POC communities actually are in so-called QLD? This website ironically reinforces exclusive stereotypes via its images and didactics. I’m curious about why First Nations are the last “theme” to be mentioned and not front and centre, and therefore where is any mention of the “theme” of abolitionist movement organising and intersections with arts & culture? What about the theme of ongoing police brutality and violence, such as the forced overturning of the recent community-led decision to un-invite NSW police to Mardi-gras by our genocide-enabling PM and others? I deeply respect HIV histories and am personally committed to solidarity with affected communities (globally), but there are other urgent/parallel priorities and ways of understanding QT history and memory. What was the cost of this “largest footprint in the world” institution? How does that cost translate in terms of power, privilege and “empowerment”? I am not convinced QT/POC artists need more centralised, funding-beholden, abolitionist-ignoring spaces that cement some people’s power, access and notoriety over others. I am convinced we need fluid (imagined)-community, genuine connection & care, and deep collective reckoning with systems that are killing us and denying us energy to even create at all. In fact, I increasingly believe *care*, not hyper-visibility, is or should be the central organising principle of creative QT/POC initiatives. Why not undertake a slow, community-led, action-research-project to “map” the existing QT/POC creative and artistic landscape of Meanjin/Magandjin/so-called Queensland to identify needs beyond vague notions of “visibility”? Sometimes our communities are safer when we’re LESS exhibitionist/hyper-visible. Why not strengthen existing infrastructure and existing solidarities? Could we please please have hard, courageous conversations that embrace our collective vulnerability *and* unequal distribution of harm and access in QT/POC lives at this time when settler-colonial empires are showing deep cracks and fissures? And could those conversations translate into material organising and steadfast relationships not rooted in careerism or fickle likeability, but radical care? Happy to chat more. Please just reach out.

Thanks, it's great to get a few insights, hopefully more offered soon. Next year is the 50th year anniversary of the Institute of Modern Art, and this would be an important and long-overdue roundtable discussion topic during the celebrations perhaps.

The 2024 National Works on Paper will again be presented throughout the entire gallery and be supported by a fully illustrated catalogue, workshops, talks and education programs.

2024 judging panel:

Artworks must be created from the beginning of 2022. Paper must act as the main two or three-dimensional support of the work or be the work itself. We love an expanded notion of how paper can be used through collage, animation, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, painting, artist books, cutting, embossing, stitching, photography, digital printing. We are open to all forms of expression, as long as paper is involved.

Born on this day in 1799, the English botanist Anna Atkins. As well as being considered by many to be the very first woman to create a photograph, her stunning 1843 book of algae cyanotypes is thought to be the very first book illustrated with photographic images.
