Saturday 08 March is the last day to see sides: red versus blue, 2009, at The Commercial, Redfern, Sydney. Sides comprises five components: three non-objective paintings, a framed watercolour page from an encyclopaedia and an aesthetic space situated by the sculptuation. The watercolour page is from the ‘Encyclopaedia of being on the wrong side of art’.
The sculptuation was first exhibited in 2009 in the group exhibition curated by artist Alex Lawler entitled ‘Faith and Lust: Various Approaches to Formalist Abstraction’ at the Flinders Street Gallery, 61 Flinders Street, Surry Hills, Sydney (10/04/2009 to 02/05/2009). Not until September 2013 was it exhibited again, this time by The Commercial Gallery at the Sydney Contemporary 13 art fair in a solo exhibition by Gail Hastings (19 to 22/09/2013). Its inclusion in the group exhibition ‘OUI we’ at The Commercial is the sculptuation’s third exhibition (24/01/2014 to 08/03/2014). For more information on the exhibition OUI we please visit the exhibition’s record or visit The Commercial.
