Pauline Bailey: As I See It  

This exhibition is all about Melbourne as I see it, memories of certain places, feelings, experiences and observations all of which tell a story.  I am also very passionate about the local music scene and this too is a recurring theme in my work. The attached images are part of a series I have been working on which explores the city and surrounding suburbs. 

The pieces I intend to exhibit depict railway stations, disused buildings, pubs, cafés and other structures; some are well known icons but others that are not so familiar are just as interesting. To me all of these places represent everything that is unique and exciting about Melbourne.

Pauline was born in Oakleigh and has lived in Gippsland since 1990.

Striking Contrasts
 

This screen based touring exhibition features ten contemporary Australian video artists, including Angelica Mesiti, John Conomos, Grant Stevens and Deborah Kelly.

Reflecting on two distinctive and opposite visions of the Australian cultural landscape, that of the vast centre to the built up city peripheries, the exhibition explores these contrasts through various techniques such as documentary film, narrative  sequence and the use of found footage.

Curated by dLux MediaArts in association with Geoffrey Weary, Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney.
