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.

PX: Thoughts On Painting

PX: Thoughts on Painting was published following the two-part PX exhibition at St Paul Street Gallery, AUT University, Auckland – A Purposeless Production: A Necessary Praxis, curated by Leonhard Emmerling, and Snow Falls on Mountains Without Wind, curated by Jan Bryant.

This book functions both as a theoretical study of painting practice – two opposed essays disagreeing about the supposed purpose or operation of contemporary painting – and an exhibition catalogue, illustrating in full the wide variety of practices that made up this show of the work of painters (in the widest sense) from New Zealand, Europe and the US:

Whitney Bedford, Richard Bryant, Amelia Harris, Dil Hildebrand, Colin Lawson, Saskia Leek, Patrick Lundberg, Michel Majerus, Fiona Macdonald, Isobel Thom, Barbara Tuck, Genevieve Allison, Guy Benfield, James Cousins, Simon Glaister, Kerstin Gottschalk, Katharina Grosse, Simon Ingram, Imi Knoebel, Tumi Magnusson, Paul McCarthy, Judy Millar, Ben Morieson, Gerhard Richter, Nedko Solakov.

Bryant and Emmerling’s essays pay particular attention to the legacies of conceptualism and the diverse relations that contemporary painting holds with various art-historical, philosophical and political discourses. Here we find the figure of painting radically expanded for the twenty-first century.

Fusing Kant’s definition of art as ‘purposeless’ with Adorno’s notion of the autonomous work of art as the only one with utopian potential, Emmerling’s text considers painting’s complete uselessness as the basis of its inalienability. Bryant adapts Jean Paulhan’s ideas on cliché and terror and attempts to delineate a certain genealogy that might account for aspects of contemporary painting practice that can’t be folded neatly into dominant art-historical discourses, even when a dialogue with art history is being carried out.
