All the better to see you with: Fairy tales transformed, the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s 2017 summer show, traces the genre of the fairy tale, exploring its function in contemporary society.

The exhibition presents contemporary art work alongside a selection of key historical fairy tale books that provide re-interpretations of the classic fairy tales for a 21st-century context, including Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and The Little Mermaid.

Featuring international and Australian artists, All the better to see you with explores artists’ use of the fairy tale to express social concerns and anxieties surrounding issues such as the abuse of power, injustice and exploitation.

Fairy tales can comfort and entertain us; they can divert, educate and help shape our sense of the world; they articulate desires and dilemmas, nurture imagination and encapsulate good and evil. All the better to see you withinvites us to delve into this shadowy world of ancient stories through the eyes of a diverse range of artists and art works.

This major summer exhibition is presented across all three levels of the museum and is accompanied by a catalogue and public and education programs.

Broersen & Lukács, Kate Daw, Peter Ellis, Dina Goldstein, Mirando Haz, Vivienne Shark Le Witt, Amanda Marburg, Tracey Moffatt, Polixeni Papapetrou Patricia Piccinini, Paula Rego, Lotte Reiniger, Allison Schulnik, Sally Smart, Kiki Smith, Kylie Stillman, Tale of Tales, Janaina Tschäpe, Miwa Yanagi, Kara Walker and Zilverster (Goodwin & Hanenbergh)

Patricia Piccinini is one of Australia's most acclaimed artists who has received worldwide attention for her startling sculptures and digital environments.

Piccinini's work examine the connections between science, nature, art and the environment. She creates an imaginative world peopled with families of charming and slightly unsettling creature; mutants who are half-human and half-beast, baby trucks and humanized scooters who love one another.

Audiences are drawn to Piccinini's work because they appear so real. Her scultptures are familiar yet fantastical, a possible future species from a strange new world.

Piccinini won Australia's National Arts Prize in 2014 following the creation of her spectacular Skywhale which will also be seen in Galway at the Festival. She reperesented Australia at the 50th Venice Biennale in 2003.

MORE INFO
Hosfelt Gallery (USA)

A companion exhibition to Christian Houge's photographs, the group show Call of the Wild features work that reflects our primal, tenacious urge to explore the remote corners of the world, and the simultaneous drives to conquer and embrace nature. Artists include Joseph Beuys, Tim Hawkinson, Birgit Jensen, Michael Light, Patricia Piccinini, Alan Rath, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith and Helmut Wietz.

Performed at the Rene Block Gallery in New York in 1974, Joseph Beuys' action, "I Like America and America Likes Me," exemplifies the yearning to embrace the savage, untamed, and instinctual. For three days Beuys remained confined in a room, interacting with a live coyote using symbolic props and gestures. The 37-minute film by Helmut Wietz documenting the performance reveals alternating moments of harmonious co-existence and ominous threat between human and animal.

The shadowy image of a tall ship in Ed Ruscha's "Homeward Bound" calls up associations of the golden age of voyage and adventure, while Birgit Jensen's painting, "Sagarmatha," refers to Mt. Everest, the ultimate aspiration of any mountaineer. Both works play on idealized notions of adventure that ignore the likelihood of tragic consequences. Michael Light's FULL MOON series of photographs depicting NASA's first forays into space points to our fierce determination to conquer new frontiers under the most adverse conditions.

Tim Hawkinson's sculpture "Scout" takes the form of the fringed buckskin outfit worn by Davy Crockett in the TV and movie vernacular of the 1960s. Not only does it speak to Hollywood's romanticized notions of exploration, but also to the role of the senses in discovery. Proportioned as a sensory homunculus, Scout is a distorted scale model reflecting the relative number of nerve endings in different parts of the human body.

The work of Patricia Piccinini also deals with the mutant body. Her hyper-realistic sculptures envision transgenic, humanoid constructs - eerily lifelike hybrids that are both repellant and loveable. Like Piccinini, Kiki Smith's works often merge human and animal forms. The combination of woman and wolf is a frequent occurrence, sometimes in altered versions of the story of Little Red Riding Hood as one of harmonious union.

Alan Rath's robotic sculptures made with feathers, speakers, and custom electronics are feats of engineering genius. Their uncannily animate qualities point to our fascination with the power to engineer life itself, as evidenced by continuing advances in biotechnology, and the increasingly blurred boundaries between the natural and the artificial.

This exhibition will bring together a diverse range of contemporary artists, who through their work, confront and challenge our attitudes towards the natural world, and in particular, the animal kingdom.

Humankind has long been fascinated by animals, who in turn, have been subjected to research, collection, categorisation, documentation, display and experimentation. Each of the artists within the exhibition creates works which involve an intensive scrutiny of animals and nature as well as a critical engagement with the ways in which we have attempted to understand and control the natural world.

Fairy Tales, Monsters, and the Genetic Imagination
Glenbow Art Museum
Calgary
Canada

MORE INFO
Glenbow Art Museum (Canada)

Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination is an exhibition of works by contemporary artists who are inspired by the fantastic stories and characters of myths, fairy tales and science fiction in which the boundaries between human and animal are blurred.

Whether in mythology, fairy tales, or science fiction, these stories and their wondrous characters are often thought of as children's entertainment. But as the artists in this exhibition demonstrate, while the novelty of invented creatures makes them delightful or frightening, they also have a serious dimension; they can cause us to reconsider our notions of what it means to be human. This takes on a new immediacy today, when scientists are able to conceive new species by mixing and matching existing genetic material.
For the artists in this exhibition, the hybrid body- whether imagined or potentially real- expresses hidden desires, ancient fears, the intrigue of transformation and the wonderful irrationality of life's paradoxes. Fairy Tales, Monsters and the Genetic Imagination includes approximately 60 paintings, photographs, sculptures and video works by contemporary artists from Canada and around the world, including David Altmejd, the Chapman Brothers, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Patricia Piccinini and Cindy Sherman.

MORE INFO
Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery (Australia)

An exclusive Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery exhibition
Guest curator: Dr Vivien Gaston

Controversy: The power of art explores the social and cultural impact of art through examples that have provoked intense response and controversy.

Beginning with key works that redefined the nature of art itself, including abstract art, Dada and art that provoked public outcry in the history of the Archibald Prize, the exhibition charts the involvement of art with salient social and political issues including social injustice, violence, refugees and the homeless. Controversies over lifestyles and critiques of bourgeois values are considered, alongside the importance of the human body and the volatile re-interpretations that have provoked controversy on several levels, including sexuality, gender and the representation of children in recent art.

This timely exhibition includes works from the late 19th century to the present day and will represent major works by both Australian and international artists working in painting, photography, print-making, video, sculpture, installation and video.

Artists today are depicting animals in their work with remarkable frequency. The exhibition ANIMAL/HUMAN presents a selection of works by contemporary Australian artists that explore our complex, contradictory and sometimes contentious relationship with other species. Their work variously touches on the psychological, ethical, philosophical, scientific and cultural parameters of the relationship. A number of works continue traditions whereby animals are depicted in symbolic or totemic form, are endowed with human qualities, or stand in for the self. Works range from playful to provocative, while others refuse easy categorisation.

ANIMAL/HUMAN includes works by artists such as Lisa Adams, Adam Cullen, Marian Drew, Julie Fragar, Fiona Hall, Pat Hoffie, Janet Laurence, Sam Leach, Sonia Leber and David Chesworth, Laith McGregor, Noel McKenna, Tim McMonagle, Danie Mellor, Dennis Nona, Patricia Piccinini, Ryan Presley, Alick Tipoti, Jenny Watson, and Michael Zavros.

Haunch of Venison, London (United Kingdom)

Haunch of Venison presents a group show featuring work by Jia Aili, Jitish Kallat, Susanne Kuhn, Justin Mortimer, Patricia Piccinini and Uwe Wittwer.

In this exhibition Haunch of Venison presents Beijing based Chinese artist, Jia Aili for the first time in Europe; Australian artist Patricia Paccinini for the first time in London; and new work by British artist Justin Mortimer for the first time with the gallery.

The Observer includes the work of six international contemporary artists - five painters and one sculptor - who all create art within the realm of figurative realism. Despite the impact of photography, abstraction, film and video, realism and figurative realism continues to be prevalent in contemporary art from around the world. The works on display demonstrate the range of methods used in this genre - from meticulously constructed photo-realist images to looser, more naturalistic work.

The exhibition takes its title from an emblematic work by Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. The Observer, 2010, is a sculpture of a young boy perched precariously on top of an unbalanced stack of chairs that look set to collapse at any moment, a visual metaphor of the world the human race has constructed for itself and the uncertain future it faces. A key theme running through the show is the way in which artists are using figuration to explore a shared sense of crisis, and to create a new iconography of melancholy. The prevalence of melancholic imagery and disturbing themes in the work of these leading figurative artists articulates their perception of a world in turmoil.

MORE INFO
Museum of Contemporary Photographty at Columbia (USA)

The exhibition Our Origins considers the human inclination to trace our beginnings beyond recorded history and explores our limited capacity to draw conclusive answers about the meaning of life. Sixteen participating contemporary artists use photography, video, drawing, and sculpture to reflect on natural history from a distinctly human and often humorous point of view. This approach emphasizes questions about the paradoxical nature of human intelligence in a universe that cannot be altogether explained. Where did we come from? How is it that we have come to possess a consciousness and a psyche? What does the future hold? The exhibition does not provide explicit answers to the great, mysterious questions of our universe, but rather confronts, and then ponders, the very idea that such questions might be unanswerable.

When Alice steps into wonderland, she steps into a parallel world that is both bewildering and elusive. In her naivety she takes the journey, and with her lack of self-awareness, she surrenders to the surreal events creating a magical world. It is what is hoped will happen in this exhibition: for the viewer to be so absorbed into the world of the artist that the real world seems very far away. This international group exhibition will work with sculpture, installations, paintings and videos to create a world that will excite amazement, combining a poetic world with the dark undertones that remind us that, as with kingdom of the tale, it is not always safe and free.

This is the first major survey of Patricia Piccinini's works exhibited in Tasmania. In Evolution she takes us on an incredible journey to encounter the possible flora and fauna of our future world.
Patricia has received worldwide attention for her startling sculptures, digital environments and images that compel us to consider an ecology and biology that blend species in the frontier world of experimental technological and biological environments. Her works take us to a post-Darwinian destination populated with fantastical creatures, new communities and bioethical conundrums.

Since 1994, this ground swelling of lowbrow, surrealistic, pop, figurative, narrative work has coalesced and found a voice in the pages of Juxtapoz magazine published in San Francisco. This rag has become the most widely read art magazine in the US. It is an influencing force on the aspiring artists of Generation Y and the Millenials, who are now enrolling in art schools in numbers never seen before.

The Ian Potter Centre: NGVA (Australia)

<p>Photography has come to dominate the contemporary art scene but despite the photo rich days we live in, large-scale surveys of Australian photography are relatively rare. Light Sensitive seeks to redress this lack and features a major exhibition of work by early to mid-career Australian photographers. The exhibition comprises 65 photographs by 38 photographers including, Brook Andrew, Patricia Piccinini, Simon Cuthbert, Cherine Fahd, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Simon Obarzanek, Selina Ou and Deborah Paauwe.</p>
<p>Light Sensitive comprises five themes and ranges from the 'uncanny' which includes evocative camera-less images called 'photograms' and surrealist-inspired images; 'new portraiture' which takes a time-honoured subject into fresh creative areas; a distinctive examination of physically (but not psychically) vacant spaces; documentary work that considers reality in provocative ways; and photographs that explore the complex nature of social groupings in our modern world.</p>
<p>All the photographs are part of the NGV's permanent collection and were acquired through a generous donation given by Mrs Loti Smorgon, A.O. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated publication, featuring an essay by the NGV Senior Curator of Photography, Isobel Crombie, along with extensive biographies.</p>
