Liam Garstang has curated the debut exhibition ‘The Gymnasium’ in the new SCA Galleries on the main campus of The University of Sydney. As Eric Chaline notes in The Temple of Perfection: A History of the Gym, the gymnasium operates not only as a place of physical pursuit but also “a place that assembled the artistic and the political, the enlightened and the reactionary, touching on many areas of life, culture, and society.”. The exhibition brings together a group of SCA Alumni and pays tribute to the Old Teachers’ College gymnasium, its former purpose and the history of bringing diverse communities together.
Featured artists: Vicky Browne, Consuelo Cavaniglia, Eugene Choi, Dean Cross, Daniel Hollier, Jonny Niesche, Jelena Teclecki, Koji Ryui & Kai Wasikowski.
‘The Gymnasium’ opens on 3rd – 29th August.
