Curtin is a recent survey of ten emerging artists, who all site sourced and found material as the starting point of image making and technical process. Linking themes and joining narratives through juxtaposition of high and low brow imagery, this exhibition aims to be a fun exploration of different modes in contemporary culture. Curtin is a group of friends, who’s work directly addresses their surroundings. Inspired by found and sourced imagery from the internet, magazines, old books, and film, these processes involve conscientious cropping, collaging, and re-appropriation.
The opening of Curtin will also double as a book launch, celebrating a free limited edition publication also titled Curtin, that was made in conjunction with The Toff in Town and Cookie, that showcases images from all artists in the exhibition. The book takes inspiration from The Toff and Cookie, the businesses that house these creative minds and also the building.
We would like to say thanks and acknowledge The Toff in Town, Cookie, The Ippolliti family, Lucie, Grolsch and Tim Peach for all their help and support in this exhibition and the making of the publication Curtin.
