    Event description

    M16 Artspace is pleased to announce the opening of three new exhibitions.

    𝗢𝗣𝗘𝗡𝗜𝗡𝗚 THURSDAY 13 JUNE,  𝟲 – 𝟴𝗽𝗺

    𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟭| ‘On Show – Sustainability’

    Canberra Art Workshop

    ‘On Show – Sustainability’ is a group exhibition by the members of the Canberra Art Workshop (CAW), focusing on the theme of creating a world that sustains both us and future generations, alongside our natural environment.

    𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟮| ‘Women Who Rendered Blind’
    Sepideh Farzam

    Two years ago, Iranian women protested restrictive laws, focusing on eliminating barriers to gender equality, notably against mandatory veiling. Security forces' violent responses, including blinding protestors, sparked outrage. Inspired by these events, Sepideh Farzam creates textile installations to honour women's resilience and advocate for change, symbolising their struggles globally.

    𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟯| ‘Life in the System’

    Melanie Olde

    Life in the System represents Olde’s ongoing exploration of hand-woven 3-dimensional fabric forms that mimic living tissue, life-like structures and functions. In this new work, Olde uses weaving as a metaphor for complexity within life systems: the small individual elements and rules acting cumulatively upon the whole, resulting in emergent behaviour.

    𝗘𝘅𝗵𝗶𝗯𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗿𝘂𝗻 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 Friday 14 June to Sunday 7 July 2024
