Ned Kelly was a notorious bushranger outlaw who wore a home-made suit of armour, fought the police and was hanged for murder in the late 1800s. He is an iconic figure in Australian history, folklore, literature, art and film; here his story is celebrated with sculpture and paintings by both internationally renowned and emerging artists - Sidney Nolan, Adam Cullen, Camie Lyons, Joanna Logue and Melanie McCollin-Walker. Loaded is the first Ned Kelly exhibition in Singapore; this context enables further exploration of global themes such as migration, hardship and national identity.

Exhibition information

NAIDOC is a celebration of Indigenous Australian culture and an opportunity to recognize the achievements of its now internationally renowned artistic communites.

NAIDOC logoThe 2012 Belongings exhibition in Singapore showcases a unique curation of paintings and sculptures from two cornerstones of the modern Indigenous art movement the western and eastern desert. Whilst the two regions have distinct artistic traditions, there are fascinating family, iconographic and historic similarities and parallels to explore. In this rich context, art for this exhibition highlights the importance of belonging belonging to the land, to family, to the past, to the future all paramount to cultural revival and survival. Artworks have come from several sources, including the dynamic new Papunya Tjupi arts centre which has never before exhibited in Singapore; and showcases many styles and stories, emerging and established artists. An exciting addition to the art exhibition is a short film to be launched on opening night which was especially commissioned for the Belongings exhibition in Singapore - a collaboration between Australasian Arts Projects and Singapore-based Kiznet Project Productions.

Exhibition information

Dramatic bronze sculptures and bold line drawings by Camie Lyons, accompanied by a boutique collection of much anticipated new paintings by Melanie McCollin-Walker. All in conjunction with a special Qing Dynasty selection of antique furniture from China Collection.

Exhibiting for the first time in Singapore, internationally acclaimed Lyons' background in dance equips her with a keen sense of balance and movement which is captured in her art. She joins McCollin-Walker, whose new paintings add another dimension to the immense talent exhibited at her inaugural 2011 exhibition, Before the Beginning.

Lyons' and McCollin-Walker's artworks, remarkable in their own right, are deeply resonant when exhibited together. Just this Moment is a synergy of the elemental, experimental, extraordinary; a surprising symphony of important ideas about memory and perception.
