New11

Presented by the Balnaves Foundation

NEW11, ACCA’s annual commissions exhibition, offers more artists from more places around Australia the opportunity to make something new and have it shown in 2011. For the past eight years, ACCA has offered six or seven promising Australian artists the chance to create a work for its popular NEW exhibition series. In 2011, the exhibition will be expanded to include new works from ten artists.

Art Exhibition previously on at ACCA - Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 12 March 2011 to Sunday 15 May 2011

Selected by curator Hannah Mathews, the artists hail from Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and while each have been commissioned to create a work that reflects their individual concerns and practices, all are linked by a common interest in materiality.

“Ranging in scale and media, the work made by these artists for NEW11 question, extend, re-contextualise, activate and even negate the physical properties of their chosen materials,” says Mathews, an ACCA Associate Curator. “The outcome will be an exhibition where the uncanny, symbolic, political, historical and comedic can all be found,” she says.

The NEW11 artists are:
Fiona Abicare, Rebecca Baumann, Tim Coster, Greatest Hits, Shane Haseman, Mark Hilton, Dan Moynihan, Brendan Van Hek, Justene Williams and Annie Wu.
