Exhibition review Butcher Cherel Janangoo, Julie Dowling, Julie Gough 10 February - 7 March 1999
Artplace Western Australia
Published June 1999
Examines how galleries, art spaces and arts infrastructure might evolve over the next 25 years to accommodate changes in interaction between artists and audiences. Focus is on the State Galleries and how we might present the multiplicity of view points from the last 30 + years. Resource issues are explored.
As it rushes headlong towards the stock exchange, lining its tattered pockets by devilishly offering students the educational stock of the deepest desire, university art schools shed its role under modernity of defining and transmitting cultural value. Mammon replaces machismo in the squeezing of art. And yet....?
Examines recent reports by the Department of Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs [DEETYA] and Strand 1998 'Research in the Creative Arts'. Should our retort be 'If you don't know much about art I don't care what you like.' ?
Explores the relationship between art making in the city and the regional areas. How much do curatorial strategies or templates order and determine what we see in State galleries and large exhibitions? Looks at the exhibition 'Palimpsest #2' to raise questions of curatorial control or whether it should continue without such controls.
The measure of an artist's public success is the extent to which his or her art matters to a particular community. David Keeling aims to present a critical discourse that participates in existing social and political debates. His turning point was not completing his post-graduate degree, not moving to the big smoke or winning a grant or prize, or having a sell-out exhibition but a revelation.
New media art has developed a close if troubled relationship with the figure of the future. Discusses Troy Innocent's ICONICA, Mousetrap by Ian Haig, RAPT by Justine Cooper, OSMOSE and EPHEMERE by Char Davies and Immersive Conditions a forum held at the Powerhouse Museum Sydney. Examines concepts of virtual reality and apparent reality.

Valamanesh has developed a unique and characteristic art vocabulary and his eloquent work occupies a distinct and prominent position in Australian art. Looks at 'the Untouchable' 1984, 'Pyramids with Light - Inside/Outside' 1980, 'Change of Seasons'.
ANAT Australian Network for Art and Technology devised its 1999 National School, me.d.ia.te, to assist curators and arts workers in gaining a technical and theoretical understanding of new media art exhibition practice. It aimed to provide a 'world's best practice' model.
Critics rarely talk about money and art. How to price a work of art and how to make a living of about $35,000 per annum are discussed. Artist need to work out how to make a name for themselves to increase the base price of their artworks. And anyway if you have to think about the price, chances are you can't afford it.
