Gigantic ArtSpace [GAS], and Australian Professionals in America [ADVANCE], are pleased to announce YOUR SKY, a group exhibition of work by Louisa Bufardeci, Justine Cooper, Michael Graeve, Jessica Rankin, Elissa Sadgrove and Judith Wright. These six Australian artists make comment on a variety of concerns through various means of mapping – experimental feedback sounds and site-sensitive compositions (Graeve), photographic documentation of the archives of the American Museum of Natural History, New York (Cooper), personal memory and cognitive journeys (Rankin), new modes of geographical mapping based on world economic and social statistics (Bufardeci), site-specific symbols alluding to metaphorical and actual passages (Sadgrove) and video sequences with accompanying works on paper of physical foreign movement on a micro/macro level (Wright).

YOUR SKY is co-sponsored by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, UBS Investment Bank and Southcorp.

The exhibition will be launched by Australia’s Consul General in New York, The Hon. Ken Allen A.M. on Thursday, July 7, 2005 at 7pm, and followed by a sound performance by Michael Graeve.

Curated by Amanda Cachia and Robyn Donohue:

Amanda Cachia is Assistant Director of Cynthia Broan Gallery, NY.
Robyn Donohue is Exhibition Program Coordinator for Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, NY.
