    Two Sicilies - Maz Dixon

    Two Sicilies explores the experience of early tourism in Anglo cultures. A line can be drawn from the original Grand Tourists in Italy experiencing the thrill of the (repeated) discovery and excavation of a single temple in Pompeii, to the burial of Australian landscapes and cultures under European names and kitsch facsimiles of other cultures.

    Male Man - Alun Rhys Jones

    25th Feb 2020

    Alun Rhys Jones’ newest exhibition Male Man investigates and deconstructs the traditional tropes of masculinity today with a series of works which analyse, question and subvert both masculinity itself and its portrayal in mainstream media. Explored through hyperreal drawings, photography and installation, the artist captures a flawed push for perfection at a time in which it appears to be crumbling.
