Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Off the Kerb is an Artist Run Initiative (ARI) located in Melbourne. Founded in 2007 by Shini Pararajasingham, Off the Kerb is designed to promote local and international artists, curators, designers and sound producers. The small team at Off the Kerb work to support emerging artists in developing their artwork to move forward in Melbourne’s lively art scene.

Appearing in the front gallery will be Dominic Sowersby with a name that accurately represents our current tech-obsessed generation: Hashtag, No Filter. Sowersby’s work reflects the ideas of pattern and repetition, recognising the possibility of altering the viewers’ perspectives; defying convention.

In the back gallery will be Samantha Riegl and Adam Stone with their collection LOL. Riegl and Stone experiment with the notion of chain letters and how they can expose an individual’s fear of the unknown: always wanting control. The exhibition also looks at the juxtaposition of the physical world versus the digital.

Bernadette O’Sullivan has taken the upstairs gallery with her series Deluge. Here she has used paint to form a collection of artworks revealing the ambiguity surrounding our memories and dreams.

Opening night takes place on Thursday 7 June 2013, 6-9pm, with the exhibitions running until late June.
