Marli Milyika Macumba, Time Over – Restart and Nora Heysen: Forever Drawing

Born Iwantja (Indulkana), South Australia 1978 and now based in Port Augusta, Marli is from Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara, Arrernte, Gurindji and Warlpiri peoples. Marli shares her culture and family stories through her art, with knowledge and skills passed on through Tjukurpa, the law and way of life governing her Country.
The Time Over – Restart exhibition considers different modes of photography and how these are metaphorically reframed and re-presented in the context of late digital photography.
Nora Heysen was a trailblazer in Australian art in the 20th century. Heysen was the first woman to win the Archibald Prize and the first female Australian war artist. Her work is held in major public and regional galleries, and many private collections, around Australia.
Exhibition: The Mill Showcase, Kirsty Martinsen, ‘Bodiness: Call and Response’
2 May – 1 July
This Eighth edition of The Mill Showcase, Bodiness: call and response is a collaboration between painter Kirsty Martinsen and dancer Erin Fowler. The exhibition further develops ideas begun in 2016 when Kirsty collaborated with NY-based theatre maker Erwin Maas creating a work based on the experience of ‘otherness’ as a disabled woman.
The exhibition is part retrospective, including works spanning a 21 year period, alongside new works and works in progress. This significant exhibition follows the evolution of Kirsty’s practice, from large format drawings and paintings through to recent smaller scale works and a new work to be created in situ with Kirsty using her wheelchair as a tool to draw across a working surface on the floor.

I AM THE WIND
Bridie Gillman – Quiet of Day
16 June- 16 July
Quiet of day has been made in response to a feeling. Each work draws from a specific moment where I experienced a sense of letting go, of calm rushing over me, of exhaling out the day and breathing in the sky. This often happens as the sun is setting, and the trees have become silhouettes in the liminal time between the sun and the stars.
The paintings are not a representation of a site, but they are based on seen things – skies, hills, gums. They translate an emotional sense of the place through abstraction, layers of colour and considered brushstrokes.
Hugo Michell Gallery
1 February – Late November
INVISIBILITY is everywhere. It’s the people we don’t notice, the environmental changes we can’t see, and the algorithms working hard behind the scenes. What becomes visible when we start paying attention?
In MOD.’s new exhibition, we’re shining a spotlight on the unseen to help us better understand the world around us and our place in it.
Join us as we time travel underground, delve into the tech monopolies controlling our lives, and slow down to notice the importance of the land around us.
