The photos tell the story – a fabulous opening for Art Of Seduction and Intimate Spaces Revealed on Friday night. Not much more to be said really. These two exhibitions curated by Debra Porch and David Broker both provide opportunities for new artists from Canberra and Brisbane to show their work alongside contemporaries from other parts of the country. They are shows that represent some of the latest political and conceptual concerns of Australian artists and all six does it with style – not over the top in this case – just insightful commentary around the issues that they are currently exploring and great ideas on the way they go about it.  Caitlin’s helmut/soundscapes are a huge hit of course and there are many photographs that show just how fetching everyone looks in them! There is lots to look at (and wear) with new works by six artists on the move. Chris Twiney, Natalie Randall, Samuel Townsend, Leena Riethmuller, Caitlin Franzmann and Carol McGregor at CCAS Gorman House Gallery until 16 August.
