‘The Subtle Knife’ by Daniel Crooks is screened at Times Square, New York, as a part of the Asia Society Triennial
A multichannel video work The Subtle Knife by Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Daniel Crooks is showing across multiple screens in Times Square, New York, throughout January as a part of the Asia Society Triennial ‘We Do Not Dream Alone’ program realised in partnership with Times Square Arts. The Subtle Knife takes us on a contemplative journey through time and space. Moving slowly down a never-ending train track, the scenery disappears into a series of constantly receding frames, forming a surreal landscape of alternate realms and infinitely expanding possibilities.

Unfinished Business: The Art of Gordon Bennett is the first large-scale exhibition of Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Gordon Bennett’s work and features 200 artworks ranging from installation and sculptural assemblage to painting, drawing, video and ceramics.
Buxton Contemporary Collection artists Louise Weaver and Stephan Bram are included in A shining light, an exhibition of new works acquired by Geelong Gallery over the past year. The exhibition takes its title from a 1986 song The shining path by British group Shriekback, and the song's opening lines resonate in this uncertain times: ‘We had lived a blessed time but we knew nothing’.
