8 May 2013 | New York hybrid art space Garis & Hahn have just opened an exhibition that focuses entirely on contemporary Australian artists.

Peripheral Visions: Contemporary Art from Australia is curated by Melissa Bateman, who was the assistant curator at the Australian Pavilion in the 2009 Venice Biennale and was associate director at Rex Irwin's Sydney gallery. The exhibition features Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Vernon Ah Kee, Liam Benson (pictured above), Amanda Marburg, Dan McKewen and several others. This will be the first time any of the artists have exhibited in New York.

Peripheral Visions is intended to provide what gallery directors Sophie Hanh and Mary Garis describe as an alternative narrative to the routine association of Australian art with landscape painting. It runs until 14 June 2013 at Garis & Hahn in New York's lower east side.
