A prestigious award and exhibition showcasing exciting talent from emerging artists.

CUOROSENSA: A Reverse Archaeology

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

In Cuorosensa, the artist’s bold, energetic and confident mark-making coheres into recognisable Luccio-esque themes — we see his Eiffel Tower, his Trojan Horse, his meditations on the myths and figures of classical antiquity — but closer inspection reveals a canvas of interlocking postcards with tantalising glimpses of the messages they once conveyed.

View to Joy

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Phiri learned to sculpt and mix different coloured clays by decorating the wall plastering of the huts where she lived and grew up. Phiri channels and repurposes these skills in her artwork today, choosing to work instead on canvas and with acrylic mediums. Her artwork focuses on life through positivity. Through her work she seeks to engage the viewer with stimulating colours and a whimsical joy that draws from the beauty of everyday life.

Insight: Children’s perspectives of literacy in northern Ghana

fortyfivedownstairs gallery 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

There are an estimated 58 million children around the world who are out of school. These children and their families are usually thought of as poor, uneducated, and non-literate. This exhibition challenges viewers to think differently about what literacy means, how it is used, and what we know about it.
