The National 2019 - New Art Australia 2019 

As is a bit of a passion for us at Hale Mercantile Co, we love to keep our eye on new exhibitions and galleries that launch around the country. ‘The National 2019: New Australian Art’ has announced its list of 65 emerging, mid-career and established Australian artists that are to be exhibited across the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA), Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW), and Carriageworks. 

After a successful debut in Sydney in 2017, ‘The National 2019’ will be showcasing new and commissioned work through a broad range of media, encompassing painting, video, photography, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance. It is the only recurring exhibition in Sydney focused solely on contemporary Australian art. The program this year situates itself firmly as a uniquely Australian event – not only being exclusive to Australian artists but engaging with a huge breadth of Australian subculture, politics and identity.

Art After Stonewall: 1969-1989   

The Stonewall Riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBTQI) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighbourhood of Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQI rights in the United States. 

Art After Stonewall: 1969-1989 looks reveals the impact of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender civil rights movement on the art world. Illustrated with more than 200 works, this groundbreaking volume stands as a visual history of twenty years in American queer life. 

This captivating and signifying book tells the stories behind the artworks; which cut across media, mixing performance, photographs, painting, sculpture, film, and music with images taken from magazines, newspapers, and television.
