Learn new systems for group critiques that emphasises listening, care and community.

Heartaches and miscommunication tend to happen within art group crits. Why? And how can we reduce it?

Our Creative Critters card deck proposes a toolkit to facilitate clear communication during art group critique sessions. In this event, we will unpack some common dynamics and experiences of art group critiques and reimagine a new structure that enables artists to leave a crit feeling empowered and inspired.

The Creative Critters Card Deck will be sold during the event.

Event Rundown

What are the forcefields (historical, structural, sensory and im/material) that hover around us? And how do we tune into them? We will explore site-responsive writing through examples, prompts and simple in-class writing exercises.

Seventh Gallery is a multi-layered site: a former maternal child health centre on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung land, sandwiched between a sports field and a cop shop. Writing the field will lead participants through imaginative, sensory writing in response to this place; we will also draw on the forcefields of rebellious, feminist and queer histories that flow through Richmond. This includes Sally Milner's feminist publishing house Greenhouse Publications, established and run out of Richmond in 1972, and the Kingston Hotel pub, a centre of lesbian and feminist activity on Highett Street, Richmond, which ran for six years during the 1980s. Beyond the field of vision and the fields of grass are invisible fields of power and control, imagination and community.

We will look at writing by Ellen van Neerven, Derek Jarman and more.

No writing experience required. No preparation required. And although we will be doing some writing in class, there’s no expectation to share it with others.

Sites of infection investigates how power acts on bodies (including interspecies forms) via social processes of replication, amplification and echo. How do sonic traces of late era capitalism effect organic forms and how much of the production of capital is a vibrational bodily pollution – in particular those low in the food chain of capital value? What is the ‘playlist’ of economic extraction and what do the vibrations of capitalism’s wavelengths do to our biological states? The work develops a visual exchange (a co-operative dialogue) between data noise/verbal abuse and algae. Algae is chosen for its relation to the artists bodily regimes of consumption and also as an indicator of climate health. The work submits jars of oxygenated algae strains to data noise and internet hate speech to measure visual and growth response. At a fundamental level I want to consider how texts (the written/spoken and vibrating social outputs of our culture) affect relational and embodied knowledge.

In this body of work, Visaya Hoffie takes on off-shoots from media and everyday culture through the lens of the history of Western painting. ‘Disappear for one month and come back fully rebranded’ looks at the visual detritus of our online worlds are spaces in which we all co-exist. In a world that’s saturated with images, the process of painting slows down our responses to the visual and allows us to make new possible connections between unlikely contenders.

We are pleased to introduce Seventh Cinema, a free public cinema season spanning seven weeks. 

Teaming up with guest artist Kori Miles, we have curated a series of film programs on a temporary outdoor cinema on the gallery's adjacent lawn. This inaugural season is dedicated to exploring the intersections of neo/colonialism and global climate change, zooming in on global colonial expansion and its persistent effects on the environment, human rights, and cultural landscapes.

Join us for weekly film screenings where each session showcases a short film followed by a feature. Through the films that we have selected, we aim to spotlight the resilience ingrained in the struggles for self-determination within global First Nations and other hegemonised and racialised communities. Themes of storytelling, family, social justice activism, home, and transformation weave through our program, highlighting the powerful and enduring role of struggle and resistance.

Screenings are free to attend and all are welcome. For more details and a comprehensive schedule of screenings and associated activities, please see our schedule below (click to enlarge) and reserve a free ticket through this link.

This event is supported through the City of Yarra's Annual Grants program.
