Let The World Burn
Until 1st March 2020
Let The World Burn features an uncomfortable intermingling of images, words, ideologies and materials. Achieved through painstaking hand embroidering techniques, Yore uses these to question the cultural codes that govern one’s body and behaviour; and examine the role of art within society. Let The World Burn, takes What a Horrid Fucking Mess (2016) as its central piece. Acquired by Ararat Gallery TAMA in 2016, What a Horrid Fucking Mess is a large-scale, hand sewn, mixed media textile work that incorporates applique, embroidery and painting alongside collaged found material: Australiana sourced from kitsch tea-towels, graphics from T-shirts and many other disparate elements.
HOURS: Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, weekends 10am to 4pm

EMILIE HEURTEVENT | NATURE
Sunday 14 December – Thursday 6 February 2020
Opening 3pm – 5pm, Sunday 14 December
Nature goes through cycles of decay and renewal where everything is about deconstruction and reconstruction, very much like humans. We all change, grow, develop behaviours and preferences. This new body of work by Emilie Heurtevent explores these cycles, using methods of marking, dripping, and physical abrasions to reveal the periods of light and dark intrinsic to Nature.

Far Flung: Connecting Intergenerational Families
Wednesday 13 November – Saturday 14 December
An exhibition produced collaboratively between eleven new immigrant families of the Birralee Primary School community and Manningham’s ‘social artists in residence’ team. Over ten weeks, the families worked together with professional artists to workshop and explore notions of how they relate to local and global places. Forming the basis of the exhibition is a ceramic based installation project exploring the idea of a global sense of home through their connection to food, sharing and creating a sense of belonging. Developed in partnership with RMIT University, supported by Manningham Council and funded by Creative Victoria’s Creative Suburbs program.

KAWS: COMPANIONSHIP IN THE AGE OF LONELINESS
September 2019 to April 2020 | NGV International
Contemporary American artist KAWS, a.k.a Brian Donnelly, is one of the most resonant artists of his generation. In an Australian first, KAWS: Companionship In The Age Of Loneliness is a comprehensive survey of 25 years of KAWS’s oeuvre, full of humour, hope and humanity, celebrating his ability to connect with broad audiences.
The full range of KAWS’s artistic output will be on display featuring more than 100 works including iconic paintings reappropriating pop-culture figures to his more recent large-scale abstract works, and an impressive collection of his celebrated sculptural figures.
KAWS engages with universal feelings of isolation and loneliness through his works, in reaction to the turbulent world we live in today. His larger-than-life sculptures are playful, toy-like figures, however at closer look, they reveal a fragility and darkness in the vulnerable poses of the characters. The exhibition will include a newly commissioned 7-metre bronze COMPANION sculpture GONE, 2019, standing solemnly in a Pietà pose, evoking a sense of sorrow and empathy. On display in the NGV’s Federation Court, this monumental work will be the largest bronze KAWS has created to date.
KAWS’ latest paintings showcase his hallmark use of bold colors and bright lines, transgressing into new creative territory with his hybrid characters now dissolving into fragmented fields of color.
Accompanying the main exhibition, KAWS: Playtime is a dedicated playful kids exhibition that KAWS has created, introducing promising young artists of today to his creative approach and artistic methods of integrating pop culture into his work.
