Coarse Stories

Ian Abdullah, Catherine Clayton-Smith, Nick Collerson, Joe Frost, Prue Hazelgrove, Phil James, Kate Mitchell, Ray Monde, Esther Stewart, Darren Sylvester

19 oct. — 30 nov. 2018

‘Coarse Stories’ is an engagement with artists that create work challenging our response to urban existence, both in terms
of physical space and philosophical bent. This exhibition explores a new allegory around the Australian urban-scape, reaching beyond townscapes and street corners and the conventions that have traditionally gone with them. These artists posit deeper questions of what is acceptable, normal, beautiful, public or private.

Notions of feeling trapped or limited by our surroundings or circumstances are somewhat defied by this select group of contemporary artists. They transcend the ordinary in exchange for the extraordinary - visions of provocation, humour and allure are the resolve. Possibility is boundless and we are invited to invest in their results. This exhibition was conceptualised by Andre de Borde, former Curator and Exhibitions Officer at Goulburn Regional Art Gallery.
