Making Worlds: Art and Science Fiction
Amelia Barikin and Helen Hughes (Eds.)

Making Worlds: Art and Science Fiction is an anthology of new texts by artists, curators, art historians and writers who are self-confessed science fiction fans. The linking point is the idea of science fiction as a platform for the building of alternate art histories. This collection is concerned with the ways in which science fiction might be performed, materialised or enacted within a contemporary context.

Edited by Amelia Barikin and Helen Hughes, with contributions by: Adrian Martin, Amelia Barikin, Andrew Frost, Anthony White, Arlo Mountford, Brendan Lee, Charles Green, Chris McAuliffe, Chronox, Damiano Bertoli, Darren Jorgensen, Dylan Martorell, Edward Colless, Helen Hughes, Helen Johnson, Justin Clemens, Lauren Bliss, Matthew Shannon, Nathan Gray, Nick Selenitsch, OSW, Patrick Pound, Philip Brophy, Rex Butler, Ryan Johnston, and Soda_Jerk.

Impresario: Paul Taylor, The Melbourne Years, 1981–1984

Impresario: Paul Taylor, The Melbourne Years, 1981–1984 brings together a diverse body of texts focused on Paul Taylor, the Australian editor, writer, curator and impresario, and in particular his important and influential early years in Melbourne between 1981 and 1984. The dates of the texts included span some thirty years and take a variety of different forms — critical essays, reviews, short reflective texts, interviews, transcriptions of lectures — the combination of which seeks to analyse Taylor’s impact on Australian art history in the early 1980s, when he founded Art & Text and curated the landmark exhibition ‘POPISM’ at the National Gallery of Victoria, and the subsequent ripples that continue to encircle us in his wake, thirty years on.

Edited and introduced by Helen Hughes and Nicholas Croggon, and featuring contributions by Ashley Crawford, Adrian Martin, Charles Green & Heather Barker, Chris McAuliffe, David Chesworth & Jon Dale, David Pestorius, Graham Willett, Ian McLean, Judy Annear, Janine Burke, Juan Davila, Jonathan Holmes, John Nixon & David Homewood, Jenny Watson & Kelly Fliedner, Lyndal Jones, Merryn Gates, Maria Kozic, Philip Brophy, Paul Foss, Patrick McCaughey, Peter Tyndall, Rex Butler & Susan Rothnie, Ralph Traviati, Imants Tillers, Edward Colless, Russell Walsh, Sue Cramer, Denise Robinson and Vivienne Shark LeWitt.

Art & Text, one of the landmark contemporary art magazines of the 1980s and 1990s. Founded in Melbourne, Australia, in 1981 by Paul Taylor (1957–92), who soon moved to New York City to make his mark as an art critic, the magazine went on to become one of a handful of international art magazines that succeeded in capturing the turmoil and passing brilliance of that period of postmodernism.

21:100:100
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.”
