Steven Rendall‘s work appears in three current exhibitions and an upcoming exhibition in Melbourne. Beneath the Surface, Behind the Scenes at Heide Museum of Modern Art brings a selection of significant works by contemporary Latin American and Australian artists together and explores the ways that art can take our imaginations beyond the limitations of the known world. The exhibition includes work by Alexander Apóstol (Venezuela), Tatiana Blass (Brazil), Lauren Brincat (Australia), Christian Capurro (Australia), Elena Damiani (Peru), Marlon de Azambuja (Brazil), Matías Duville (Argentina), Gloria Sebastián Fierro (Colombia), Ximena Garrido-Lecca (Peru), Arturo Hernández Alcázar (Mexico) Nadia Hernández (Venezuela/Australia), André Komatsu (Brazil), Liliana Porter (Argentina), Marilá Dardot, (Brazil), Nicholas Mangan (Australia), Jorge Magyaroff (Colombia), Hayley Millar-Baker, Gunditjmara/Djabwurrung (Australia) Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza (Ecuador/France), Berna Reale (Brazil) and Steven Rendall (Australia).
In Clarity & Mud at Blindside artists Michael Graeve and Steven Rendall have used items extracted from a list of sub proposals to structure the exhibition – akin to an employee’s performance plan. This involves a complex combination of play and seriousness in relation to status, institution and practice.
The upcoming exhibition Steven Rendall: data for future paintings, curated by Melissa Keys and Laura Lantieri features a new series of work by Rendall, prompted by, and exhibited alongside selected studies and photographs by Albert Tucker. The exhibition opens later this month in Albert & Barbara Tucker Gallery at Heide Museum of Art and runs until March 2024.
