Ai Weiwei is China’s most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organises people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention.

AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai
while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a
nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.

MARINA ABRAMOVIC: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life: a major new retrospective of her work, taking place at The Museum of Modern Art. To be given a retrospective at one of the world’s premier museums is the most exhilarating sort of milestone. For Marina, it is far more: it is the chance to finally silence the question she has been hearing over and over again for four decades: “But why is this art?”

Monet’s Garden: The Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris will feature more than sixty works devoted to Claude Monet’s iconic garden at Giverny.

The exhibition traces the evolution of these garden motifs over a period of twenty years, revealing the transition of Monet’s purely Impressionist style to the more personal pictorial idiom that he adopted in later life.

NGV Director, Tony Ellwood, said the exhibition would feature Monet’s most well-known works, from a stunning suite of enormous waterlilies paintings to his iconic garden motifs, as well as some rarely seen late paintings.

“Monet’s Garden is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the world of Monet and the garden that became his lifelong obsession. We are thrilled to collaborate with the Musée Marmottan, home to one of the largest collections of works by Monet in the world, to bring these masterpieces to Melbourne for the first time,” said Mr Ellwood.

The exhibition is organised by the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris in association with the National Gallery of Victoria and Art Exhibitions Australia.

Yuko Shimizu

[singlepic id=2781 w=440 h=621 float=]

Yuko Shimizu
Illustration where traditional Japanese prints meet surreal comic art.

Yuko Shimizu’s work is a combination of traditional Japanese graphic prints mixed with surreal comic art. Her technique results in some beautifully executed and alluring scenes: where she draws her basic forms and figures with Japanese calligraphy brushes and later digitally supplements them with additional colors and backgrounds.

[singlepic id=2782 w=440 h=311 float=]

This collection explores the relationship between East and West present in her work: American pop and Japanese comic culture are brought together to display science-fiction fantasies and personal creative visions, which are often erotically charged.

[singlepic id=2784 w=440 h=332 float=]

Yuko Shimizu has won numerous international awards and has done commissioned work for the New YorkerRolling Stone,SPINPlayboyGQEntertainment WeeklyMicrosoftPepsiVISA, MTV, and the New York Times.

Undercurrent Architects – Archway Studios

[singlepic id=2766 w=440 h=660 float=]

Archway Studios is a prototype liveworkspace designed by Undercurrent Architects, which utilises the space in and around a 19th Century rail viaduct in London. Undercurrent Architects aims to adapt these structures, which dominate areas of London, and divide neighbourhoods, by creating a space which has worked with the challenges of its tight surroundings: with the constraints of an innercity, industrial site and one which also engages its surroundings.

As one of 10,000 arches that dissect neighbourhoods across London, it is a model that can be adapted for broad community benefit and regeneration.

Exhibition – 8 March to 20 April 2013
At Craft – 31 Flinders Lane Melbourne

[singlepic id=2764 w=440 h=288 float=]
Enmeshed 
by Caroline Phillips displays her ongoing research into minimalism and craft. Phillips’ practice involves the accumulation of bulk materials, knotting, tying, hooking and applying flexible materials to hard surfaces.

The exhibition features the use of interior architecture, decoration and design of gallery surfaces to capture: ‘feminist language of the materiality of space’.

“I am using the architectural space as a material and conceptual metaphor for the human experience. My practice investigates the feminine body in space. Women have historically occupied a range of internal spaces – such as domestic interiors, familial relationships, physical and cultural roles and expectations – and in many cases the feminine has been considered as ‘surface’ (hidden interiority, or passive waiting to be inscribed upon by others ), ‘excess’ (out of control or ornamental) or ‘beautiful’ (idealised or lightweight).”
