FIFTY YEARS AFTER THE FIELD SYDNEY
Mainroom 29th August - 8th September 2018 
Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 29th August
Thursday-Saturday, 1-6pm

The Field, 1968. An exhibition described by its curators as biased, directional and indicative of but a moment in time. Yet ever since it has had a profound effect on non-objective abstract practice - variously seen as a seminal, breakout and mythologised - it has been restaged and referenced many times; making it, paradoxically, a long and enduring 50-year moment of influence. For Fifty Years after The Field, Factory 49 has invited a number of Melbourne artists, and some Sydney artists, to consider the value and place of The Field in their contemporary non-objective practice. If, as one of its artists claimed, The Field was the only exhibition that ever opened a gallery and closed an art movement, what now?
Artists: Lila Afiouni, Adrian Corke, Tracey Coutts, Robin Kingston, Susie Leahy-Raleigh, Sara Lindsay, Suzanne Moss, Lindy Patterson, Jessica Pearless, Stephen Wickham, Elefteria Vlavianos

LIMINAL SPACES
1st August - 11th August 2018 

Opening 6 - 8 pm Wednesday 1st August
Main showroom, 1st August - 11th August 2018 
Thursday-Saturday, 1-6pm

Lisa Tolcher’s work demonstrates a strength and vulnerability that is driven by process and an empathy for the inherent rhythms found in her repurposed materials. Liminal Spaces explores the formal qualities of light, space and line, all the while revealing the artists’ mark through time based and playful investigation.
