Artereal Gallery is excited to announce the launch of our new experimental Project Space!
Since opening in 2006, Artereal Gallery has been dedicated to presenting contemporary art which is both experiential and experimental. This new Project Space will allow Artereal Gallery to continue to do so, by giving the gallery a dedicated space for exhibiting cutting edge work by both emerging and established artists working across performance art, video, installation, sound based art and new media. With a particular focus on exhibiting the best up and coming emerging artists working with experimental practices – the Artereal Gallery Project Space will aim to show the ‘best of the next’.
The Project Space will be programmed by consultant curator Matt Glenn. Currently based in London, Matt will continue with his role as the Assistant Gallery Manager of the Serpentine Gallery whilst curating the Artereal Gallery Project Space. Matt is also a practicing artist and is represented in Sydney by James Dorahy Project Space.
For its inaugural exhibition, the Artereal Gallery Project Space will present a solo exhibition by Sydney artist Charles Dennington. Dennington’s work shifts between material devices in an exploration of object, artifact and representation. The artist’s drawings, photographs, sculptures and constellational arrangements bring about questions of nature and hierarchies - orders within conscious and unconscious judgment.
Charles Dennington is currently undertaking an MFA at Sydney College of the Arts. In 2010 he was included in No Right Turn, a contemporary drawing exhibition at Penrith Regional Gallery. In 2011 he collaborated with Tully Arnot on three split solo shows Bozo & Bozzetto at Gaffa Gallery, Double or Nothing at First Draft Gallery and Um Om at Rear View Gallery in Melbourne. Other solo exhibitions from 2011 include Face Like Figures, Floored at MOP Projects and Waste Models at DB Projects.
The Artereal Gallery Project Space will be launched in March 2012 to coincide with Art Month Sydney and the launch of the Rozelle Contemporary Art Precinct.
