3D printing at UTS Gallery

Keith Brown Shoal 2005

Made Known
18th sept - 18th oct

Rapid prototyping is a 3D printing technique where objects are 'printed' by extruding liquid material, adding one slice on top of another. The material then hardens, resulting in a solid 3D model.

The works in Made Known represent an international cross-section of artists who have embraced the potentials of 3D printing to create sculptural objects. Artists from Australasia, Europe and the US have been invited to send a piece of work via the Internet as a 3D digital file. These files will be printed as rapid prototype objects using the 3D printing facility in the School of Design at UTS.

In addition to 3D prints, animations using the same rapid prototype software will feature in the exhibition by artists including Hye Rim Lee, Marcus Williams and Susan Jowsey.

Curated by Ian Gwilt and Brit Bunkley.

Strangely Familiar
Fiona Hall and Fiona MacDonald
1 nov - 2 dec

We comfort ourselves as best we can. We feather our nests and are kissed by consumption. We are flying toward something we do not know and yet someone, somewhere, always knows where we are.

The art of Fiona Hall and Fiona MacDonald will turn the gallery into an environment where we see the aftershadows of the collection and the complicated folds of capitalism. The setting is a haunted domesticity. The walls are draped and wallpapered, shopping bags frighten us and all our money seems able to blow away. But this is not a simple horror. We experience the paradoxical pleasures of seeing money made into an exquisite home and flows of consumption becoming a sail across the sea or a flight on a breeze.
