Set to be launched in August this year UNSW lecturer and internationally recognised contemporary artist Gary Carsley is collaborating with Singapore-based artist Jeremy Chu to produce a major new commission for the National Gallery of Sinagpore titled OUTBOUND.
The installation is scheduled to be on display for three years and takes the form of a multi-story translucent screen with a stripped pattern modelled on an 1819 Regency era wallpaper.
Gary is an internationally active artist, curator, cultural commentator and academic. His areas of research include queer theory, alternative histories and postcolonial studies.
His studio practice is characterised by hybridising established modes of imaging such as painting and drawing with more recent digital and immersive technologies to produce complex visually rich spatial environments.
In addition to an international exhibiting history that includes projects for the Visual Arts Centre of New Jersey, the Museum of Art And Design in New York and the Kunstvereins in Ulm and Stuttgart, Gary has participated in, major exhibitions such as the 2nd Singapore Biennale (2008) and the 2nd Animamix Biennale in Shanghai (2009). He has extensive experience in the design, project management and installation of small and large-scale site specific works for Hospitals, Court Houses and commercial public spaces in Australia, Asia and North America.
Gary Carsely is represented by Thatcher Projects, New York and Torch Gallery, Amsterdam and his works are held in the permanent collections of more than 30 museums including the National Gallery of Australia and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
