CURRENT

OPENING 5.30PM SATURDAY 4 DECEMBER 2021

Australian UK based artist Sam Smith’s hypnotic installations in his solo exhibition ELEMENTS, interweave the complex relationships between nature, the built environment and its connection to human existence through a collection of moving images, sculptural forms and sound.

FUTURE

Ashley de Prazer will be completing an artist residency at The Lock-Up while installing the collaborative exhibition produced by CATAPULT DANCE opening Saturday 29 January 2022.

Inspired by the beauty and fragility of humanity juxtaposed against the backdrop of industrialised landscapes, SCAR presents a series dance-on-film installations scattered throughout the colonial architecture of The Lock-Up.

A group exhibition featuring artists Akil Ahamat, Emma Fielden, Dean Cross, Izabela Pluta, Aude Parichot and Tané Andrew. Curated by Anna May Kirk and Tai Mitsuji.

Back again for 2022, The Lock Up’s fundraising exhibition COLLECT is your chance to see and invest in work by some of the best artists in the Hunter and beyond.

Promise the Earth is the next in a five-part exhibition series launched two years ago at The Lock-Up. Curated by Meryl Ryan and Naomi Riddle, each exhibition takes one of the elements – water, earth, fire, air and æther (the post internet realm) – as its defining feature.

CREATION is a new religion, manifesting in spectacle and intimacy. A faith, a gathering of intention and purpose with which to face an era when paid opinion trumps environmental evidence. CREATION proposes a crowd-sourced belief system teeming with pleasures and possibilities.

A group exhibition featuring artists Lucas Abela, Kalanjay Dhir, Oliver Harlan and Meng-Yu Yan and newly commissioned works by Billy Bain, Tiyan Baker and EJ Son.
