This exhibition comprises part of a series of projects that considers practice – as filtered through the lens of a single artist and that artist’s expanded community (whether that might include friendships, personal or professional relationships). The impetus for this project is an article Lisa Radford wrote about the relationship between fellow Melbourne artist Geoff Newton's paintings and the work (and death) of artist, gallerist and friend Blair Trethowan. Radford has invited a number of artists to exhibit a work pertaining to material relationship to politics – be they personal or public or somewhere in-between – and then to nominate the work of another artist which would sit alongside, beside, adjacent or parallel to their own. Among many others, Geoff Newton has selected an Arts Workers Coalition Poster from 1968, Amanda Marburg has requested a work by Linda Marrinon, Sam George is showing some Francis Alys works, and James Lynch has requested a work by Mathew Jones.
