Review: Emma Gregory – Semi-Permanent Collections at VG&M

An exhibition as widely appealing as this is a rare and refreshing sight. It ties in museology, fine art, print production, ceramics, millinery, design, local history, archival work, personal histories and genealogy in a small, very revealing show.
Yeah No I Know by Seize at Muesli

Review: Yeah No I Know by Seize at MUESLI, The Royal Standard

The work on display has the look and feel of contemporary art... It is crisp, it is clean, and it commands the authority of the space, everything contemporary art appears to do these days. They’re a group with their fingers on the pulse.

Review: Life on The Left at Corke Gallery
