    Limits to Growth

    Aileen Burns, Charlotte Day, Krist Gruijthuijsen, and Johan Lundh

    This publication accompanies Australian multidisciplinary artist Nicholas Mangan's survey exhibition “Limits to Growth.” The exhibition and book bring together four of Mangan's most significant works of the past seven years, alongside a new commission. The works in the show tackle narratives from his own geographical region—Asia Pacific, in which his home country of Australia plays a colonial role—and weaves them into a bigger picture to take into account the global economy, resource extraction, and the ultimate power of the sun. Featuring an in-depth series of conversations between the artist and the Barcelona-based curatorial collective Latitudes, and essays by Ana Teixeira Pinto and Helen Hughes, this publication is richly illustrated with documentation of Mangan's artworks and historical source material.

    Be Polite

    Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh

    Gordon Bennett: Be Polite follows the exhibition of largely unseen works on paper by one of Australia's most visionary and critical artists, Gordon Bennett (1955–2014). The exhibition and publication are the first to present the work of Bennett since his death. Though rarely seen in exhibition contexts, Bennett's drawing and writing formed the foundation of his practice.

    This publication brings together three newly commissioned essays by art historian Ian McLean and curators and arts writers Helen Hughes and Julie Nagam. The selection of works from the Estate of Gordon Bennett comprises drawings, acrylic/gouache and watercolor paintings, poetry, and essays from the early 1990s to the early 2000s—a period that produced work of remarkable force and revealed the artist's working methods, research focuses, and ultimately his ambitions for his work.
