Playlist brings together artists Gemma Avery, Charles Cooper, Susan Foster, Julian Hooper, Michael McIntyre, Kyle Murrell, Lisa Sammut and Rebecca Shanahan to present an exhibition whose visual language is considered and idiosyncratic.
Simultaneously interdependent and solitary, these works act as elegant counterpoints to one another. Playlist is a personal compendium of contemporary visual artists assembled by Gemma Avery. If the artists were songs then she’d be playing them to you. Probably on a turntable. Definitely reading the lyrics.
In music parlance, counterpoint is the relationship between voices that are harmonically interdependent, yet independent in rhythm and contour. Playlist, an exhibition that works across collage, photography, painting and installation, achieves a unique collective expression while maintaining the singular sensibilities of the artists.
