Parallel Wanderings / The Concourse, Chatswood
27 Jan - 20 Feb 2022
A Willoughby City Council curated exhibition exploring contemporary notions of landscape and our changing relationship with nature.
Parallel Wanderings 双行游 explores how contemporary Australian artists with Chinese cultural roots reinterpret and draw from Chinese landscape traditions, and present the notion of ‘landscape’ through the contemporary mediums of sculpture, photography, installation and performance art. Through their different mediums, this group of artists reflect on the importance of nature and their own personal connection to the natural world. As the parameters around contemporary art practices continue to expand, the landscape genre continues to adapt with it, highlighting present-day issues, including Climate Change and urbanisation.
ARTISTS: Thomas C. Chung, WeiZen Ho, Karen Lee, Pamela Leung, Ruth Ju-shih Li, Dapeng Liu, Jayanto Tan, Laurens Tan, Catherine Woo and Tianli Zu
Chatswood Year of the Tiger Festival is the North Shore’s premier Lunar New Year celebrations presented by Willoughby City Council.

14 Apr - 2 May 2021
An exhibition of abstract paintings, installations and interactive performance by Pamela Leung.
Shades Of Red lV, 2021 presents an exhibition of mixed media, installation and painting. Pamela Leung explores themes such as the mundane routines of everyday life, relationships, connections, displacement, and the diaspora. She shares her personal migratory experience with the audience, while also allowing them to reflect on the broader ideas of identity and displacement. The colour red takes on a significant symbolic status in her work, representing the differing emotional perspectives of Western and Eastern cultures. Further, she sees red as the very colour that runs through us, despite what colour skin we are.

FRACAS continues Articulate’s experiment with exhibition practice begun with FAIRISLE, FERAL, FERRET, FERMENT and FROLIC FREEZE in previous years. It presents the exhibition as a changing site by re-contextualising each artwork with new works installed in the gaps left by the departure of works that were installed earlier. This weekly coming and going of artworks is a slow and progressive art-dance, each step of which is seen by coming to each of its six Friday-Sunday iterations until Feb 22. Opening events are each Saturday 1-5pm.
