Curated by Jasmin Stephens

Metallic presents a group of artists from across Australia who share a preoccupation with the nature and purposes of materials and a concern for questions of transference and attachment. Works included in the exhibition appear to be simultaneously persuasive and ‘ordinary’, they worked with and against their materials and they effected some kind of energy shift.

A work titled Disappearance with reassurance (or, finding what's there, right there in front of me and putting it forward) was commissioned for Metallic and exhibited alongside works by Ian Andrews, Tori Benz, Philip Gamblen, Bevan Honey, Jacob Ogden Smith, Layli Rakhsha, Jacqueline Rose, Mimi Tong.
