Brad Haylock - Without Time

Without Time continues Brad Haylock's ongoing questioning of the commodification of critical practices, in particular the intersection of artistic avant-gardes and luxury capitalism. The exhibition's title is derived with irony from a literal mistranslation of the Italian phrase 'senza tempo', accurately translated as 'timeless', the name of the 2010 collection by Italian furniture maker Minotti.

Art Exhibition previously on at Anna Pappas Gallery in Prahran precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Thursday 13 October 2011 to Sunday 13 November 2011

Certain works in the exhibition evoke suprematist inquiries into an essentialism of form, but take as their content the graphic tropes of fashion magazines and perfume packaging. In contrast, other works evoke the symbolism of oppositional subcultures or the historic political left. In this exhibition, just as in today’s designer home, divergent motifs and materials come together in pursuit of a seamless whole.
