Square Optics is the first solo exhibition presented by artist Jessie Balletta.

Employing traditional etching techniques, such as rosin aquatint, the artist uses a square motif in blocked and tonal colour variations to explore the power of repetition.

Repetition becomes meditation, meditation becomes ritual. The etching process and colour fields become private spaces for contemplation. Wassily Kandinsky observed, “Colour provokes a psychic vibration. Colour hides a power still unknown but real, which acts on every part of the human body.”

Square Optics is stripped back to its essential elements of colour and geometric form where no figurative narrative exists, allowing the viewer to project their own meaning.

Join us to celebrate the opening June 2nd 6-8pm.

Last days! ‘Future Sex’ presented as part of @melbknowledgeweek wraps up this weekend.

As part of ongoing research exploring female voice and aesthetic design in erotic technologies, Future Sex challenges the expectations of sexbots formed through popular culture. It brings attention to how interactive technologies can meaningfully connect with people and seeks to promote a future of technology design with greater justice, equity, consent, inclusion and safety.

Our co-existence with technology permeates every facet of life, down to the most intimate aspects.

In a unique example of human-computer interaction design, Future Sex brings together art, robotics and gender studies to give participants a first-hand encounter with the future of technology use in sexual interactions.

Join us this evening 6-9pm to celebrate ‘Pelan Pelan’ by Mythra Sage!

From shared moments of intimacy, a new sense of community and belonging is formed. Through iterations and interpretations, Mythra explores what representational painting can be in the contemporary era, perhaps a means
of slowing the mind, pelan pelan, in the dance between figuration and abstraction.

On now in the gallery ‘Pelan Pelan’ by Mythra Sage.

Pelan Pelan is a body of work that employs the physicality and language of paint to put memories and experiences, past and present, in conversation with each other in a co-creation of the current moment. Images draw from Mythra’s complex relationship with place, from her upbringing in Bali, Indonesia, to her present home in Melbourne. From shared moments of intimacy, a new sense of community and belonging is formed. Through iterations and interpretations, Mythra explores what representational painting can be in the contemporary era, perhaps a means of slowing the mind, pelan pelan, in the dance between figuration and abstraction.

Presenting ‘Trace’ by Ro Noonan and Meg Kelso, in now in the gallery.

Trace is an exhibition presented but multidisciplinary artists Meg Kelso & Ro Noonan. Together they use the physical acts of adding too and taking away in their respective practices - as an entry point to draw connection to the cognitive piling that the extended lockdowns have had on the mental health of our community. Both artists employ the physical and obsessive gestures of scraping, scratching, patching, and layering to document and give form to this theory.

Head to our website for the catalogue.

Did you know No Vacancy had been around for almost 14 years?

It’s exhibitions like this one presented by @chivasanz that make us remember how old we are but also remind us what we’re here for and how lucky we are.

On the walls this week you’ll spot artists, photographers, models and creative direction from right across our community. People who spent their lunch break hanging out at No Vacancy, hungry for the next opportunity, now driving their careers in the arts and beyond with passion and intention.

We’re just a stepping stone, but so proud to be part of the journey.

No Vacancy presents an online exhibition of the first ‘game’ of The Superimposed Project.

This initiative, set in motion by Lana de Jager, sees 11 artists challenging their process and practise by re-imagining each others art. Wrapping each other’s work in new skins and playing alchemists with wet and dry printmaking techniques.

The Superimposed Project was born from a need to connect (post Covid lockdowns) with other professional artists in the printmaking field - from teachers to peers.

Locker Room Talk is a contemporary art exhibition and event series that aims to bring together inspiring women and non-binary creatives, sparking meaningful conversation in a positive space.

Kate Pullen and Louise Brough are the pair behind Locker Room Talk, and the show will feature the work of 36 artists. The project began as a response to the pressures they have felt as women – in work and life – paired with a desire to celebrate some of the incredible artists they admire.
