Oliver Schwarzwald’s ‘Hurdle’ has been selected for this years East Wing Biennal – an eighteen-month student-organised exhibition at the Courtauld Institute of Art. Initially the vision of Joshua Compston, a Courtauld student between 1989-1992, the first show opened on 27th November 1991 and exhibited the likes of Gilbert and George, Howard Hodgkin, and Damien Hirst.
Lyn + Tony are currently exhibiting their first solo show at the Australian Design Centre (ADC) in the up-and-coming Sydney neighbourhood of Darlinghurst. Subject Matter introduces you to Claire McCaughan, the ADC’s Head of Programs, to shed light on the experience of curating ‘Scented Intoxication’, collaborating with Lyn + Tony and ADC’s move to the historically eclectic Darlinghurst. This eastern Sydney suburb has undergone vast urban renewal since the 1980s. The area was once a slum and red-light district, and is now home to vibrant independent creative businesses. With the welcoming of the ADC, there is a drive to develop the area into Sydney’s next cultural hub.
