Music as Image
⬤ project8 9 Sep - 22 Oct 2022
Music as Image is a modest group exhibition with a directly announced curatorial premise, articulated and produced by two practicing artists — Sean Lowry and Kim Donaldson, here operating under the banner Cūrā8. They are also the team responsible for establishing the new gallery for the exhibition: project8, a short ride in a clean lift to the second floor of a 3-storey white-rendered building in the new-swank west end of Collins Street. It’s a few doors down from Celine (the hobo-chic couturier currently known for taking out multiple pages in Artforum and Frieze). If image is everything (and it is), then Music as Image can be viewed as a micro-reflexive demurring of that adage, here explored through how the musicological can be made manifest within ye olde white cube.
