Starkwhite, New Zealand
11 May - 8 June
IMA Director Robert Leonard is curating an exhibition for Starkwhite to coincide with the opening of the Auckland Triennial in May. Titled Bazinga!-the notorious catchphrase of Dr Sheldon Cooper from the TV sitcom The Big Bang Theory-the show will explore a nerd sensibility in recent Australian art. It will feature work that touches on science (especially astrophysics) and science fiction (particularly Star Trek); mathematics and statistics; technology, computers, computer games, and the internet; and obsessive fandom, autistic behaviour, and inane pranks. The artists are Rebecca Baumann, Botborg, Antoinette J. Citizen, Gabrielle de Vietri, Danielle Freakley, Daniel McKewen, Ross Manning, Grant Stevens, and Stuart Ringholt.
Bazinga! opens Saturday 11 May at 6pm, with a video/sound-feedback performance by Botborg, and runs until 8 June.

Place of Assembly
Schoolhouse Studios, Melbourne
10 - 27 October 2012
Over the last 2 years, Schoolhouse Studios in Abbotsford has been the workplace of over 75 artists working across a wide range of disciplines. With the demolition of the site planned for the end of 2012, resulting in the displacement of the tenants, founders Elizabeth Barnett & Alice Glenn, in conjunction with Melbourne International Arts Festival, are curating a two-week, site-wide exhibition. Place of Assembly brings together the artists-in-residence, along with 12 guest artists and the general public, to celebrate the diverse and vibrant 120-year history of the site. The uniqueness of the Nicholson Street site, and the fact that it will soon be demolished, offers people a rare opportunity to engage with space and art-forms in a way that is impossible in conventional galleries and exhibition spaces.
Fresh Cut 2012
23 JUNE–4 AUGUST
This year's Queensland emerging-artists show features work by Sean Barrett, Antoinette J. Citizen, Yavuz Erkan, and David Nixon.
Antoinette J. Citizen is thinking about the future. Inspired by the idea that the world will end in 2012 (the end of the Mayan calendar), she programs Google Calendar to rapidly scroll forward, month-by-month, hoping to find its limit—a new unanticipated endtime. In contrast, she slows down the 1960 movie The Time Machine, showing it as if it had started playing when it was first set (1899) and would finish in the distant future it imagines (802,701). For Project Alpha, she mocked up a letter from ASIO to Peter Alwast, inviting the Brisbane artist to join the elect who will continue the species in the event of a future global cataclysm. Finally, with Courtney Coombs, Citizen harassed the curators of the hip Paris art museum, the Palais de Tokyo, sending them a new proposal every fortnight, until asked to cease and desist. Optimistically, the duo proposed futures that would not take place.

Relationships between the body and technology evolve in parallel with technological
progression. Super connected devices enable us to see and experience the world anew.
We keep them close. They fuse the virtual with the real. They are part of our everyday.
Media Lab Melbourne is calling for projects that reflect on the relationships between the
body and technology.
Projects will be realised during a sprint from the 13th – 21st of August.

In March No Frills* will take part in ‘Eastern Seaboard‘ curated by Reuben Keehan at
Artspace Sydney. Eastern Seaboard is an exhibition and symposium project exploring
the conditions, conceptual frameworks and creativity of artist collectives operating in
Australia’s urbanised southeast. The show also includes projects from The Cosmic Battle
for Your Heart and Foodcourt du Jour, du Jour.
Since leaving the comforts and constraints of routine programming at Metro Arts the
No Frills* directors have been increasingly inclined to spend time away from Brisbane
and each other in search of independent accounts of the international art world. In
the lead up to Eastern Seaboard, communication across time zones has exacerbated
the incongruence of their approaches and ultimately proven their inability to make art
together as a four-way collaboration. In response to this, No Frills* proposes new
methods of collaboration in the hope of addressing their ambivalent desire to connect
with other artists at home and abroad.
