Comprehensive publication to accompany the exhibition Painting. More Painting, at ACCA, 30 July–28 August 2016
and 2–25 September 2016. Featuring essays by Hannah Mathews, Quentin Sprague, Justin Paton and Jan Bryant; short, biographical texts on the seventy-nine participating artists; and documentation of all works in the exhibition printed in full colour, the catalogue offers analysis and insight into the depth and breadth of contemporary Australian painting.
Curated by Max Delany, Annika Kristensen and Hannah Mathews, Painting. More Painting was presented at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne in two chapters: 30 July–28 August and 2–25 September 2016. Each chapter was structured around a series of solo presentations (including Abdul Abdullah, Vivienne Binns, Ry David Bradley, Stephen Bram, Helen Johnson, Lisa Radford, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Teresa Baker, Angela Brennan, Mitch Cairns, Diena Georgetti, Matthys Gerber, David Jolly, Karl Wiebke) alongside an expansive panoramic group exhibition set within a dynamic mural-scaled wall painting by Sam Songailo. The solo presentations offer a focused consideration of the practices of fourteen Australian artists – seven in each chapter – demonstrating a range of distinctive positions. Alongside, and extending out from, these solo presentations, the panoramic group exhibition in ACCA’s main gallery – arranged alphabetically – presents the work of early, mid and senior-career artists whose work is conceived within the canon of painting and the medium-specificity of painterly discourse.
Reflecting the resurgent activity and critical agency of painting over the past decade, the exhibition Painting. More Painting provides an overview of contemporary Australian painting in a context in which diverse conceptual, polemic and stylistic connections and debates can be drawn between individual approaches across generations.

Institute of Modern Art 1975-1989
A Documentary History - Bob Lingard, Sue Cramer (Eds.)
Institute of Modern Art 1975-1989 – A Documentary History, was edited by Bob Lingard, Sue Cramer in Brisbane in 1989, and takes an in-depth look at the history of a very important period of one of Australia’s oldest contemporary art spaces. Through essays by Bob Lingard and Peter Anderson, exhibition photography, a full list of exhibitions, catalogues and bulletins, this publication retrospectively showcases the directorship years of Robert Jadin de Fronenteau, John Buckley, John Nixon, Barbara Campbell, Peter Cripps and Sue Cramer, exhibiting John Olsen, Robert MacPherson, Ian Hamilton, Sidney Nolan, John Baldessari, Peter Cripps, Gunter Christmann, David Hockney, Diane Arbus, Jenny Watson, Chuck Close, Joseph Kosuth, Paul Sharits, Mike Parr, Arthur Boyd, Robert Jacks, John Davis, Mario Merz, Peter Tyndall, Hilary Boscott, Imants Tillers, John Nixon, Elizabeth Gower, Janet Burchill, Tony Clark, Dale Frank, Henri Chopin, Scott Redford, Tim Johnson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Vivienne Shark Lewitt, Fiona McDonald, Fiona Hall, Joanna Flynn, Jan Nelson, Joanna Ritson, Robert Hunter, Stephen Roach,Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Lehan Ramsey, Hiram To, John Dunkley-Smith, Stieg Persson, Merilyn Fairskye, Linda Marrinon, Bill Henson, Fritz Rahman, Melinda Harper, Geoff Lowe, Lindy Lee, Eugene Carchesio, Diena Georgetti, Maria Kozic, Lyndal Jones, amongst many others!
“This publication documents the history of the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane from its inception in 1975 until the present day (1989). In doing so, it provides a partial record, both visual and verbal, of the life of one particular institution and an insight into a ﬁfteen year history of exhibition-making within contemporary art. There can be no doubt that “Contemporary Art Spaces” (previously institutions such as the IMA were known as “alternative spaces”) have a crucial and unique role in supporting and developing contemporary art and curatorial practices within Australia. As the photographs of exhibitions, and the essays in this publication show, the Institute has played a signiﬁcant role over its ﬁfteen years as a venue not only for the exhibition of art that is being made in Brisbane itself, but also that of artists working elsewhere in Australia and overseas. It is worth remembering too that the Institute is the second oldest of the Contemporary Art Spaces in Australia. With this in mind, the Institute’s archive, from which this publication has been drawn, becomes a valuable resource in the study of recent art. The photographs published here oﬁer a visual record of individual works by many contemporary artists, a number of which may not have been published elsewhere. It is hoped therefore, that this publication might fruitfully be regarded as a source book from which more detailed projects of research can be undertaken. It is impossible in one publication to cover all of the activities and personalities, ideas, debates and discussions that have made up the life of the gallery. Alongside the exhibition program, the Institute has generated forums, lectures, ﬁlm screenings and publications as an important part of its activities…”

Pitch Your Own Tent
Art Projects | Store 5 | 1st Floor
Extensive catalogue produced on the occasion of the exhibition “Pitch Your Own Tent: Art Projects | Store 5 | 1st Floor” curated by Max Delany, at Monash University Museum of Art, 23 June to 27 August 2005.
Featuring essays by Carolyn Barnes, Max Delany, Robyn McKenzie, Tessa Dwyer, Andrew Hurle, Danny Huppatz and Sarah Tutton.
Monash University Museum of Art presents Pitch Your Own Tent: Art Projects | Store 5 | 1st Floor, an exhibition and publication examining the recent history of contemporary Australian art from 1979-2002 through the activities and practices of three influential artist-run spaces: Art Projects, Melbourne 1979-1984, established by John Nixon; Store 5, Melbourne 1989-1993, established by Gary Wilson; 1st Floor, Melbourne 1994-2002, established by David Rosetzky.
The exhibition explores a strong lineage in the recent history of contemporary Australian art; of avant-garde, experimental and innovative practices and discourses developed by communities of artists through independent artist-run exhibition and publishing initiatives.
Each of the three respective artist-run spaces will be represented through one of MUMA’s three galleries, which will provide the opportunity to represent each organisation in context, whilst also allowing a comparison of the ideas, modes of display, and material culture of each respective enterprise. One contention of the exhibition is the degree to which it is artists themselves who are responsible for the interpretation and writing of art history.
One important parameter that has been established within the curatorial framework is to involve only those works of art which were actually presented in the programs of the respective artist-run spaces, thereby invoking the forms, production values and materiality of the respective periods.
The title, Pitch Your Own Tent, makes reference to Gustave Courbet who pitched his own tent in front of the 1855 Exposition Universelle in Paris, to Ti Parks tents (one of which was exhibited at Art Projects and will be included in the exhibition), to Rikrit Taravanija’s tent installed in front of the AGNSW, and to the perpetually provisional and itinerant nature of artist-run spaces generally.
Given that the programs of Art Projects, Store 5 and 1 st Floor were each ambitious, diverse and encompassed exhibition and publishing programs conducted over periods of 5-9 years, the exhibition will inevitably focus upon the principal artists, and selected works which have made influential and/or lasting contributions, or are strongly representative of innovative visual arts culture of the time.
