Chippendale Creative Precinct

REMEMBER, REMEMBER,THE ART OF NOVEMBER

 

In the thick of springtime rejuvenation, the Chippendale Creative Precinct (CCP) has begun to remake itself and consolidate its vision. Since its inception in 2010, the CCP has grown into a nuanced ecosystem of local galleries, eateries, innovative businesses and individuals, bolstered by initiatives such as BEAMS Arts Festival, Chippendale New World Art Prize, and Explore Chippendale Free Gallery Walking Tours. These initiatives continue to illuminate Chippendale as a hotspot on the world map, garnering major exposure, business opportunities and financial benefits for all CCP members. Rebranding to Destination Chippendale, the CCP sparks a line of fires across the creative heart of Sydney, setting each of its rent-free galleries ablaze with stunning new exhibitions.

Upcoming, the Gallery Trifecta runs three new shows under the direction of CCP President and arts forerunner Nicky Ginsberg. We eagerly await our next Creative Connect event (held alongside the UTS Animation showcase in the Old Rum Store on Kensington Street!). Our website has been updated, and our Destination Chippendale Guide continues to circulate across Sydney’s most creative terrain. On Kensington Street, keep a lookout for our Christmas Bazaar on Sunday 13 December where we promise an exciting array of food, art and design.

Gather round this cultural bonfire as we hurl in new ideas, watch drifting embers scatter across the night and remember, remember, the art of November.

 

THE GALLERY TRIFECTA

 

OPENING THURSDAY 19 NOVEMBER 6-8PM

 

From 6 - 8PM on Thursday 19 November, the Gallery Trifecta will be reborn, housing new exhibitions for the upcoming three weeks. Join us as we unveil Sarah Mufford’s watercolour series One Between Two in Kensington Contemporary 1, sculptural showcase Alternate Forms in Kensington Contemporary 2, and group exhibition KODO in Carlton Project Space.

 

Sarah Mufford

ONE BETWEEN TWO

KENSINGTON CONTEMPORARY 1

 

Sarah Mufford - Tesselate

Sarah Mufford paints to the Indian mantra of One Between Two. These words direct Mufford’s application of pattern in her watercolour paintings, layered in the style of decorative marking to construct a kaleidoscope of vibrant textures.

One Between Two merges binaries: intuition and reasoning, organic shapes and pattern systems, and visual conventions of East and West, where the sentiments of “one between two” collide with the influence of Italian Renaissance masters. Mufford dissolves spatial relationships and colour perceptions, producing richly textured works that press our audiences to observe closely.

ALTERNATIVE FORMS

GROUP EXHIBITION

KENSINGTON CONTEMPORARY 2

 

Susan Robey - Sculpture made in high fired Paperclay

Adam Rish, Allison Tucker, Anne Delaney, Denese Oates (of Stella Downer Fine Art), Hidemi Tokutake, Holly Macdonald, Jo Wood, Lee Mathers, Rachel Harrex, Sally Walk, Stephanie Sykes, Steve Coburn, Susan Robey & Tracy Luff, in collaboration with Kerrie Lowe Gallery.

Alternate Forms is a sculptural showcase with a focus on organic form and design. Our exhibiting artists pivot their works on a conceptual wheel, turning through notions of place, identity and belonging in a multitude of mediums. Alternate Forms binds together the most accomplished hands working in sculpture, seeding a fertile ground from which forms like Tracy Luff’s cardboard silhouettes, Hidemi Tokutake’s ceramic foliage and Susan Robey’s paper clay masterpieces emerge.

Alternate Forms lives up to its name, offering fresh perspectives on some of the most deep-rooted ideas in our society. Our artists take these concepts into their own hands, mould them with a sensitive touch, and return them in alternate forms, leading their audience along the verge of experimental thinking.

KODO

GROUP EXHIBITION

CARLTON PROJECT SPACE

 

Beric Henderson - Symmetry of Nature

Emma Bourke, Kate Darmody, Eliza Fugar, Rinaldo Hartanto, Jacalin King, Alinta Kirkpatrick, Martin Nester, Hugo Puflett, Scarlett Thorby-Lister, Simon Wearne, Vivian White and Jobe Williams

After undertaking a Japanese pilgrimage trail, Kumano Kodo, this group of talented artists return to share the artistic manifestation of their cultural experience in multidisciplinary exhibition KODO.

Having traversed a variety of terrain; walking through forests, over mountains, rivers, frozen lakes, through villages, shrines, temples and waterfalls, KODO’s mixed media works reflect the diversity of the trail itself, where each artist documented their own intimate journey. Such a walking meditation ensured the constant engagement of their mental, physical and emotional focus, winding down a road of peace and transcendent harmony.

Explore the blissful scenery of Japan in Carlton Project Space, homages to the serenity and wonder experienced by some of the most talented students and graduates of UNSW Art and Design.

THE SPIRIT OF CHIPPENDALE NEW WORLD ART PRIZE

 

In 2016, we shift our thematic focus to "Spirit". Spirit is intangible but touches us deeply; it defies all boundaries in its freedom, untethered from any singular idiom. It steers the direction for the Chippendale New World Art Prize and BEAMS Arts Festival 2016.

The spirit of Chippendale glimmers in the dark. It collects the fires of its tenants and visionaries to refract them in brilliant light and shower the district’s historical facades with gold. In Sydney’s downtown, Chippendale glows through the smoke and fog to illuminate a new age, where the spirit of both people and place burn brightly together.

We encourage creatives to harness the spirit that resides within and around them to power their investigation of this concept.

Submissions close May 2016         
Finalists exhibition opens Thursday 2 June 2016

ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING WITH ICON FILM DISTRIBUTION

 

From the creators of Monty Python comes comedy magic this November! ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING can happen when a group of eccentric aliens endow schoolteacher Neil Clarke (Simon Pegg) with unlimited wishes. It takes him more than a few tries (and gives us more than a few laughs) to get the hang of it - all the while the aliens are watching. Will he prove a worthy representative or doom the earth to annihilation?

To coincide with the November 19 release of ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING, Icon Film Distribution have given five double in-season passes for our subscribers!

For the first ten who open this newsletter, these tickets are now yours!
