    An open call for contributors to OAT 2019 launched on October 29th. The deadline is 19th November 2018. OAT 2019 will challenge the growth paradigm and investigate the architecture of alternatives. Architects, urban practitioners, activists, novelists, artists, researchers, citizens and others are invited to join this investigation. Open call for Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019 The engine of contemporary architectural production, and the basis of societies around the world, is economic growth. Global political orthodoxy declares GDP growth is always good; that more is more. Throughout the last two centuries, increased economic growth brought with it many measures of prosperity, but for many decades now the limits to growth have been visible on the horizon. Social equity, health and wellbeing, quality of life, happiness and other non-monetary measures of success are faltering while resource extraction, greenhouse gas emissions, waste and toxicity, temperatures, sea levels, extreme weather, and many such indicators of climate breakdown make clear daily that the time of this worldview is running out. The next Oslo Architecture Triennale will challenge the supremacy of economic growth and investigate the architecture of alternatives. The festival will explore the buildings, spaces and institutions of a new culture in which economic growth is [...]

    ‘As Above, So Below’ reflects on the loss of the Australian landscape in the drive to extract what is beneath it by the fossil fuel industry; land that before anything else is held in the custody of Traditional Indigenous owners. This melding of landscape and industry speaks of our failure to invest in a renewable future, as coal, oil and gas extraction dominate the power industry without consequence. Meanwhile standing in a rapidly changing environment, the figure represents both the catalyst and the casualty of these actions. Exhibition at MAY SPACE, Sydney. 14 November to 2 December 2018. 409b George Street Waterloo NSW Australia 2017. t: (02) 9318 1122, e: info@mayspace.com.au, w: www.mayspace.com.au.

    Zi Peng and Na Wei, both established artists from mainland China, whose works have been collected globally and recognisable in the International Art arena, will be having a joint exhibition at Y2Arts from 1st till 31st December, 2018. Their artworks give voice to both the artists’ social consciousness. Unified through their very own signature visual language, their creations draw both subject matter and message from current social dialogue and issues. With their enthralling colour palette, their artworks summon the viewer closer, only to find themselves confronted with messages that can leave them unsettled, yet fascinated. From the pernicious effects of materialism to the political oratory found in today’s society, Zi Peng’s and Na Wei’s creations invite viewers to participate in opportune dialogues. The majority of their original works have already been collected around the world. Together with Y2ARTS, the artists have produced a series of limited digital prints, similar to artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Keith Harding and Andy Warhol, to allow a wider range of art lovers to enjoy and embrace their artistic ideas. Influenced by how the current society processes the multitude amounts of information, the artists’ universal language of icons and symbols attach themselves to a multitude [...]
