Tania Doropoulos, Director of Anna Schwartz Gallery said: “We’re thrilled to present these two exhibitions showcasing engaging new works by Marco Fusinato and Rose Nolan. It will be a multisensory experience, with artworks on the walls and floor accompanied by Marco’s sound works and a special performance.”

Marco Fusinato, who has been selected to represent Australia at the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022, will unveil his latest series of works for the exhibition titled ‘EXPERIMENTAL HELL (ATMOSPHÆRAM)’. The exhibition features large-scale silkscreen works on raw aluminium, a newly recorded album, and a noise performance, which will bring the three primary areas of Fusinato’s practice together in a single project. As a musician Fusinato explores the idea of noise as music, using the electric guitar and mass amplification to improvise intricate, wide-ranging and physically affecting frequencies.

Rose Nolan’s monumental new floor work transforms the upper gallery space, featuring her distinctive reduced palette of red and white and use of text. Titled Parlour Games, the exhibition comprises a large carpet and mirrored panels and continues Nolan’s exploration of the possibilities of painting, shifting her work from the wall to the floor to inhabit a new space. Nolan works across painting, installation, sculpture, photography, prints and book production. Her practice regularly oscillates between the discrete and the monumental and is informed by a strong interest in architecture, interior and graphic design – combining formal concerns with the legacies of modernism.

Nolan’s exhibition closely follows the recent unveiling of the artist’s monumental public art work, Screen Works ‘ENOUGH-NOW/EVEN/MORE-SO’.
