This Must Be The Place is a new bar venue in Darlinghurst. Owner operators Luke Ashton and Charlie Ainsbury have engaged James Dorahy to curate a series of artists projects that will be presented quarterly.
The quality and nature of the presentations are in line with the aim of this exciting new bar venue to engage culturally with patrons through this artforum. The exhibition series will present a range of talent that defines current contemporary practice.
By association a further aim of the program is to be involved with the local community, geographically through the proximity to leading art institutions UNSW Art & Design and the National Art School, and by supporting local charities through the sale of works donated specifically for this purpose.
Max Creasy Making Marks is the inaugural artist project. In this series the artist continues his dialogue with the art of observation. His constructed photographs question our understanding of various modes or representation, by casting doubt on their inherent truths.
The implication of language and its tools further complicates our cognitive response as we draw meaning from the signs, symbols, highlights, shadows, simulations, nouns, verbs and processes that characterize his work.
Pets In The Park is the first charity to be supported through the sale of the following work donated by Cul-de-sac (a boutique creative agency and production house based in South Australia who design and produce signature design prints)
Cul-de-sac, study #15, Giclee print on archival matt paper, 50 x 70 cm, Framed $500
