Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre - Binns and Valamanesh

Saturday 19 July 2014 to Sunday 07 September 2014


Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre will present two of Australia's leading visual artists in a cross-cultural feast for the senses. Selected works from Vivienne Binns and Hossein Valamanesh will be showcased in a free exhibition from 19th July to 7th September 2014.

Curator Toni Bailey has sourced a variety of artworks for the exhibition that highlight the diversity of the two artists' practices that span over four decades, across a variety of mediums, including painting, sculpture and installation.

Born in Wyong NSW, Vivienne Binns has established herself as a highly respected and astute artist within the Australian artistic landscape.

Hailing originally from Iran, and now living and working in Adelaide, Hossein Valamanesh sensitively combines cultural elements from his two countries. The result is sculptural and installation-based work relating to memory, cultural dislocation, loss, and the progression of time.
