7th January: Nancy Sever Gallery (Canberra) ‘Sometimes there isn’t anything to get‘ [link]; “This no holds barred contemporary art exhibition features recent work from exciting Canberra artists Joel Arthur, Zoe Brand, Byrd, and Hanna Hoyne. Often amusingly, the artists subvert art/life boundaries, elevating the familiar through their individual practices of painting, jewellery, stencilling and performance art. The exhibition title celebrates contemporary art’s accessibility, yet hints at the essential irony of conceptual jeweller Zoe Brand’s statement. “; until 30th January

14th January: Rubicon ARI, Annie Gobel and Marcos Guzman ‘Colourfast Guaranteed’ [link]; “Colourfast Guaranteed considers the ‘brilliance’ of colour and the permanent visual effect that remains after the ‘wash and rinse’ cycle of associations and experiences.

This exhibition celebrates the use of colour and the applications that the artists employ to render wearable pieces.“; until 31st January
