EVENTS: MARCH EXHIBITION LAUNCH
30 Mar 2019 | 2.00pm - 4.00pm
Be part of our MASSIVE exhibition launch at the end of March. Three exciting new exhibitions will be coming to our galleries. In CREATOR, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran pushes the boundaries of figurative sculpture. Penelope Cain refers to artefacts from local historical collections, as well as Casula Powerhouse's history in works featured in INTERREGNUM. We are also launching the Blake Established Artist Prize Exhibition, which features artworks by contemporary artist Robert Hague.
Creator - Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran | 30 Mar - 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 Mar - 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.
Blake Established Artist Prize Exhibition - Robert Hague | 30 Mar - 12 May
Robert Hague is an artist who brings a broad skillset to the contemporary art scene. His artworks revel in ambiguity and play with opposites, simultaneously conveying heaviness, lightness, fluidity, brutality and gentleness. His art practice features numerous media, including printmaking, painting and installations that feature his stone and metal sculptures.
This exhibition is part of his 2016 Blake Established Artists Residency which includes a residency and a solo exhibition at Casula Powerhouse.
