Agatha Gothe- Snape, Carolyn Eskdale, Helen Grogan, Jessie Bullivant, Shannon Lyons. The gallery is more than a frame. More than an architectural setting. In Infrastructuralism, five artists produce and deliver work that ingratiates itself inside the physical system of the gallery. The exhibition exposes the hidden, neglected or secretive support structures that serve as platforms for the presentation of art objects. Presented across all spaces at LAI, the artworks marry humour with material awareness in a playful incursion into the nature of our cultural organisations. All the various facets that go into making up architecture, display, function and administration are brought into play.

Thursday 18 January 05:30pm

Join 2016 Georges Mora Fellow, James Geurts as we celebrate the closing days of his exhibition Seismic Field at La Trobe Art Institute. During his LAI residency, Geurts initiated a dialogue between the LAI and the dynamics of the underlying earth, examining the relationship between geophysical forms and consciousness. The works are abstract measuring propositions, exploring these forces physically and symbolically. Geurts intervenes the processes of scanning and polaroid photography as site actions, letting weather, temperature, force and the pulse of the body disrupt the form and colour field, blurring the lines between geology and technological praxis. The works investigate seismic phenomena and cultural context, amplifying perceptual and physical thresholds of what is, literally, below our feet.
