About this event

Gallery25 is proud to present NEWSROOM, a visual art exhibition by three artists - Alison Alder, Marian Crawford, and Richard Harding - who have mined and re-cycled their respective collections of analogue and digital news items into new creative artworks. While the news cycle presents us with a ceaseless barrage of information, an artwork stills or slows this relentless cycle, making space for a different type of reading. This more reflective space makes room for knowing the news but not being overwhelmed by it. NEWSROOM presents the opportunity to consider the fruitful relationships and engagement that can be found in a creative and imaginative re-presentation of the news. 

Presented by:
Edith Cowan University (ECU Galleries)

Alder, Crawford, and Harding’s artworks intersect conceptually through the prisms of feminism, human rights, and social justice issues, and align technically through their use of innovative printmaking processes. Alder, Crawford, and Harding explore their impulses or desires for a better
present and future in this exhibition, and this optimistic thinking draws their works together. All three artists work with printed images and printmaking methods, and find these processes exciting: lifting a print from a matrix after running it through the press always reveals a surprise, and it is this surprise that engenders optimism, and hence (maybe) a sense of utopia.
