Sydney gallery Sullivan+Strumpf will preview solo shows by Tim Silver and Richard Lewer this weekend in Melbourne.

The pop-up exhibition, the first of its kind for the Sydney gallery, is a prelude to Silver and Lewer’s debut solo shows happening at Sullivan+Strumpf in March this year.

Of the interstate opening, gallery director Ursula Sullivan has said “It’s a bit of an experiment really. It started off with wanting to show a few people Richard’s work before it left for Sydney, and then it kind of made sense to show both Richard and Tim's work, given the support for the fabulous 10 cubed ladies. So here we are, ready for Melbourne!'

Melbourne-based artist Richard Lewer’s new body of work documents his relationships with numerous members of the Parnngurr community: “…it looks at who lives there and how life is based on my experiences. I had the amazing opportunity to work beside and make paintings with the Martumili women”.

Sydney-based artist Tim Silver’s work is inextricably hinged on time, exploring the interface between time and decay, especially in relation to the human body and the natural world.

The exhibition is open to the public this Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm at 51-53 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, with the official opening starting from 3pm on Saturday the 14th of February. Click here to view Art Collector’s 6til8 exhibition listing for these events.
