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.

During the Exhibition the Gallery Will Be Closed: Contemporary Art and the Paradoxes of Conceptualism
In this compilation of essays Camiel van Winkel uncovers the conceptual roots of contemporary art. He shows that the art of today as a whole is essentially ‘post-conceptual’. The production and reception of art are determined by circumstances and factors that conceptual artists in the years 1965-75 were the first to announce: the cultural dominance of information, the professionalisation of artistic practices, and the applicability of the criteria of ‘good design’.This post-conceptual perspective offers a new and revealing insight into the systematics of contemporary art and artisthood, in particular with regard to the relation between conceptual and visual aspects, the meaning of theoretical discourse, and the role of institutions and mediators.
Camiel van Winkel writes on contemporary art and occasionally curates exhibitions. Based in Amsterdam, he teaches art theory and art philosophy at Sint-Lukas University College of Art and Design in Brussels. He is advisor at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. He is the author of Moderne leegte. Over kunst en openbaarheid (1999), The Regime of Visibility (2005) and De mythe van het kunstenaarschap (2007). His latest book, based on his PhD dissertation, is titled During the Exhibition the Gallery Will Be Closed. Contemporary Art and the Paradoxes of Conceptualism (Valiz, 2012).Graphic Design: Sam de Groot

Publication to accompany the exhibition “Reinventing The Wheel: The Readymade Century”, 3 October – 14 December 2013, Monash University Museum of Art, Victoria, Australia.
Arguably the most influential development in art of the twentieth century, the use of the readymade was set in motion 100 years ago with Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel. Giving birth to an entire artistic language, Duchamp’s conversion of an unadorned, everyday object into a figure of high art completely inverted how people considered artistic practice. Suddenly, art was capable of being everywhere and in everything. It was a revolutionary moment in modern art, and the ripples from this epochal shift still resonate today.
Reinventing the Wheel: the Readymade Century pays tribute to this seminal work and traces the subsequent elaboration of neo-dada practices, with a particular focus upon everyday and vernacular contexts; the mysterious and libidinous potential of sculptural objects; institutional critique and nominal modes of artistic value; pop, minimalism and industrial manufacture. These discursive contexts will also provide a foundation to explore more recent tendencies related to unmonumental and social sculpture, post-fordism and other concerns, particularly among contemporary Australian artists.
Bringing together works by over 50 artists – from Duchamp and Man Ray to Andy Warhol and Martin Creed, along with some of Australia’s leading practitioners – this is a one-of-a-kind salute to an idea that continues to define the very nature of contemporary art.

100 sound works by 100 artists from the 21st Century
“When we separate music from life we get art.” John Cage
This catalogue presents the exhibition which was part of the 2008 Melbourne International Arts Festival, 21:100:100 featured 100 works by 100 sound artists produced in the 21st Century. This exhibition was the first significant survey to explore and chronicle the extraordinary developments that have occurred in contemporary sound art in the 21st century.
Curated by Alexie Glass, Emily Cormack, Marco Fusinato, Oren Ambarchi
Collaborators: Fabio Ongarato, Jared Davis, Kristy Edmunds
Today, Sound Art and Experimental Music enjoy an infrastructure all of their own, with journals, labels, music festivals and websites devoted to its critical and creative discussion. This ambitious concept was developed with the premise that the foundations of both sound art and contemporary art share a similar spirit of enquiry and experimentation, and whilst the discussion of their relationship is a lively one, this exhibition proved the first to present such a breadth of sound work to Australian audiences within a gallery context.
21:100:100 was developed by Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces in collaboration with internationally acclaimed Australian artists Oren Ambarchi and Marco Fusinato. It included work made in the preceding eight years chronicling new directions and innovations in sound art. These works were played on 100 headphones suspended within the gallery, creating a space for the visitor to pick their way through sound art’s many and varied aural and conceptual evolutions.
As co-curator Alexie Glass has stated “Melbourne has always enjoyed an incredibly lively sound art community and has been a central site in the investigation and presentation of sound art in a music festival context. 21:100:100 provides a truly unique and crucial opportunity to fully engage with sound art, and to trace it’s varied thematic threads, and innovative stylistic developments. It is the first exhibition of its kind and is one of the most important sound art exhibitions in Australian history.”
