Creator - Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran | 30 March - 12 May
Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran pushes the boundaries of figurative sculpture and ceramic conventions. Creator finds the artist channeling Hindu temple iconography, museum displays and colonial public monuments to form a dialogue with museum practices around the framing of Asian faith based objects.
The artist spent many formative years living and working in Western Sydney. Creator marks his first solo exhibition in a Western Sydney art space.

Interregnum - Penelope Cain | 30 March - 12 May
Interregnum is a solo exhibition by Penelope Cain. The artist takes Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre’s history as a coal-power generating station as her starting point to consider shifting landscapes of power in Australia. Interregnum will feature new work by the artist developed in response to artefacts from local historical collections.

Anatomies - Robert Hague | 30 March - 12 May
Robert Hague uses the techniques and style of classical western art to question the foundations of power and identity in contemporary western society.
As part of The 64th Blake Prize, Hague was awarded the Established Artist Prize, which includes a residency and exhibition at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Anatomies features a survey of the artist’s recent figurative work, including marble and steel sculpture, lithography, video and installation.
