The history of Sarah Cottier Gallery’s first twenty years in a comprehensive reference volume.
An example of one of Australia’s most influential contemporary art galleries.
Twenty years, two hundred exhibitions, four venues, nearly one hundred artists. Ever since its arrival in 1994, Sarah Cottier Gallery has been one of Australia’s most courageous contemporary art galleries. The artists represented in this time, including John Armleder, Sydney Ball, Marco Fusinato, Matthys Gerber, John Nixon, Mike Parr, Koji Ryui and Gemma Smith, represent some of the hottest talent in contemporary art.
20/200 celebrates the first twenty years of the gallery and its artists in a pictorial format that illustrates the breadth of the twenty year experience. The book includes images of every one of the gallery’s two hundred exhibitions and includes the work of almost one hundred artists. The volume is hardcover bound with a timeless rounded spine and features a holographic foil on the the front cover. The individual works and specific highlights inevitably surrender to the vast, hypnotic rhythm of the volume’s breadth – as in the fairy tale conundrum of the dancing princesses, each is more beautiful than the last.
Includes the work of A.D.S. Donaldson, Martin Creed, Kerrie Poliness, Melinda Harper, Julian Dashper, John Armleder, Sydney Ball, Mikala Dwyer, Hany Armanious, Marco Fusinato, Matthys Gerber, John Nixon, Mike Parr, Koji Ryui, Mikala Dwyer, Hany Armanious, Matt Hinkley, Huseyin Sami, Robert Pulie, Julia Gorman, Simon Denny, Anne-Marie May, Gemma Smith, John Spiteri, Katherina Grosse, Mary Teague, Olivier Mosset, and many more!
Texts by Nicholas Chambers, Jason Marcou, Julie Fragar, Anna Waldmann, Amanda Rowell, Alan Cholodenko, Mark Titmarsh and Christopher Hanrahan.

Let's Destroy Work
On the eve of All the World’s Futures at the 2015 Venice Biennale, Schwartz City is pleased to announce the publication of Let’s Destroy Work, the first major monograph on Marco Fusinato. A comprehensive overview of the past two decades of Fusinato’s projects in art and music, featured projects include FREE (1998–2004), a series of guerrilla performances in unsuspecting music stores around the world; Mass Black Implosion (2007–), an ongoing series of propositional scores; Aetheric Plexus (2009–2013), a viewer-triggered installation of white noise and white light; and TM/MF (2000), a collaborative project with Thurston Moore.
Included is new writing by Branden W. Joseph, Professor in Art History at Columbia University; a text by US-based music critic Byron Coley; and essays from insurrectional anarchist writer Alfredo M. Bonanno’s publication ‘Let’s Destroy Work, Let’s Destroy the Economy’. The book is rich in colour and mono illustrations of Fusinato’s works, and a selection of reference images.
Marco Fusinato’s practice references the rhetoric of radical politics (its ambitions and failures), noise as music and the conditions and conventions of conceptual art. Through wide-ranging forms of work in gallery contexts and performances, he foregrounds moments of disruption and impact in which lie the possibility of a shift in perception or change in the course of events. Fusinato performs regularly in the international experimental music underground, obliterating the guitar into improvised noise-spit tsunamis.

La Fine del Mondo
Marco Fusinato, Felicity D. Scott, Mark Wasiuta
La fine del mondo has been produced by Marco Fusinato, Felicity D. Scott and Mark Wasiuta on the occasion of their contribution to the section Monditalia at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition of la Biennale di Venezia, June 7 to November 23, 2014.
Their installation, also titled La fine del mondo, is comprised of this print document along with sensor-triggered audio-visual components depicting related records from Turin’s Piper Club of 1966 and three Milanese centri sociali: Leoncavallo, Cox18, and Virus. Staging encounters between the Piper Club and centri sociali, both the print document and audio-visual format aim to provoke questions about the design and management of nightclubs and social spaces conceived as sites of political mediation and under the auspice of participation and self-governance. Arising before and after the late-1960s political eruptions in Italy, and marked by distinct patterns of cultural exchange, migration, and industrial transformation, the differences between—and continuities across—these environments speak in provocative ways to Italy’s imbrication within the wider system of global capital. What sort of apparatus, we ask, is materialized in each? The images and archival documents presented herein have been prepared with the assistance of, and in collaboration with, Andrea Membretti, Pietro Derossi, Elena Hileg Iannuzzi, and Marco Philopat.

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.
