Main Space
Tasman Richardson
Curated by Rhonda Corvese.

Necropolis is an immersive video and new media installation. It will realize the translation of over a decade of ethereal video experiments and theorizations into a real world, tactile, audience experience. Necropolis will consist of six new works contained within context-specific spaces, housed inside a single super-structure.


Project Room
Spectral Landscape
Peter Doig, Tim Gardner, Sarah Anne Johnson

The expression “losing yourself in the wilderness” takes on new meaning in works by Peter Doig, Sarah Anne Johnson and Tim Gardner. Here ambiguous, hallucinatory vistas collide with sublime, pastoral scenes and the idea of the ruggedness of the hinterland clashes with its ultimate fragility. In each case, the realism of the works is interrupted by a sense of sheer uncanny.These multifarious landscapes mix autobiography with illusion and the banal with the extraordinary, offering striking images that suggest a shift in our perceived relationship with the natural world.

Media/Retail Space

GOD Loves Japan

God Loves Japan is a time-sensitive installation memorializing the earthquake/tsunami disaster that took place in Japan on March 11th, 2011. This installation intends to raise awareness of Japan’s long-term recovery needs and will encourage viewers to re-evaluate the meaning of love and empathy in our time.
