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.

Artists include:
Art Projects – Anti-Music, Tony Clark, Peter Cripps, John Davis, John Dunkley-Smith, Richard Dunn, Robert Jacks, Robert MacPherson, John Nixon, Imants Tillers, Ti Parks, Mike Parr, Peter Tyndall, Ania Walwicz, Jenny Watson.
Store 5 – Stephen Bram, Sandra Bridie, Tony Clark, Bronwyn Clark-Coolee, Marco Fusinato, Diena Georgetti, Melinda Harper, Gail Hastings, Anne-Marie May, John Nixon, Rose Nolan, Kerrie Poliness, Kathy Temin, Gary Wilson, Constanze Zikos.

1st Floor Artists and Writers Space – Amanda Ahmed, Guy Benfield, Kate Beynon, Martine Corompt, Michael Delany, Kate Ellis, Mira Gojak, Eliza Hutchison, Raafat Ishak, Brendan Lee, Andrew McQualter, John Meade, Sean Meilak, Callum Morton, David Noonan, Alex Pittendrigh, David Rosetzky, Jacinta Schreuder, John Spiteri, Lyndal Walker.

Text: Carolyn Barnes, Max Delany, Tessa Dwyer, D.J Huppatz, Andrew Hurle, Robyn McKenzie, Sarah Tutton, edited by Max Delany.

MONOCHROMES
Edited by David Pestorius

7 December 2000—24 February 2001
University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane

Monochromes was the first major survey in Australia of artists working with a single colour. It presented artworks produced over the previous 35 years by more than 45 Australian and foreign artists who have exhibited work of this nature in Australia. The approach adopted involved selecting one work by each artist and grouping them by colour. And rather than including only artists who might be considered ‘hard-core’ exponents of the painted monochrome, a more expanded view of monochromatic practice was embraced, one that acknowledged critical shifts in contemporary practice since the 1960s, with numerous conceptual and post-conceptual works presented.

A substantial catalogue, with an introduction by David Pestorius, commissioned essays by Andrew McNamara (QUT) and Morgan Thomas (UQ), and comprehensive installation view photo-documentation, was produced in the immediate aftermath of the exhibition.

artists: Ian Anüll (Zurich) Peter Bonde (Copenhagen) Peter Booth (Melbourne) Ian Burn (Melbourne) A.D.S. Donaldson (Sydney) Mikala Dwyer (Sydney) Andreas Exner (Frankfurt) Dale Frank (Brisbane) Marco Fusinato (Melbourne) Gail Hastings (Sydney) Leni Hoffmann (Düsseldorf) Robert Hunter (Melbourne) Robert Jacks (Melbourne) Gerold Miller (Berlin) Ian Milliss (Sydney) Elizabeth Newman (Melbourne) John Nixon (Sydney) Rose Nolan (Melbourne) Robert Owen (Melbourne) Wendy Paramour (Sydney Ti Parks (Melbourne) Mel Ramsden (Oxfordshire) Robert Rooney (Melbourne) Chris Wilder (Los Angeles) Heimo Zobernig (Vienna), and others.

Gail Hastings

“A magnificent catalogue to compliment this important Australian abstract artist who has received much attention throughout Europe. This beautifully designed publication shows how Hastings examines the theories of historical Minimal Art in her own artistic work.”

Australian abstract artist Gail Hastings makes sculptuations (sculptural situations) — invisible space made visible through a conjunction of geometry, colour, objects and concrete texts.

“This catalogue has been published on the occasion of exhibitions of work by Gail Hastings at Bahnwarterhaus /­ Galerie der Stadt Esslingen, 6 December 1998 – 17 January 1999; Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Canberra 14 August – 12 September 1999; University Art Museum, University of Queensland, Brisbane 10 September -10 October 1999” – p. [2]

Includes bibliographical references (p. 90-92)

Introductory essay by Renate Wiehager; editing David Pestorius; design and layout Gail Hastings.
