2 cities, 1 night: Sydney & Melbourne

Tuesday 3 December 2013:

For those in Sydney, an exhibition titled 'Won't Work' is opening at Kudos Gallery from 17:00 - 19:00.

The show is curated by Andrew Haining, whose own work will feature alongside a group of Sydney-based artists: Alex Clapham, Mitchel Cumming, Brian Fuata, Talitha Klevjer, Al Poulet, Kieran Richards, and Zoe Robertson.

'A critique of the art of what works is redundant because the idea of what works isn’t working. It is the creation of an imperative that isn’t posited by power but denied by it. This isn’t a show critical after the fact, but the provocation for an art free of can't.'

The exhibition continues through Saturday 7 December 2013 (the gallery is open 11am-6pm Wed to Fri, and 11am-4pm Sat).
