Jack’s Magazine opens its doors for a unique site specific exhibition of moving image, sound and installation works as part of Melbourne Design Week 2019. Artists and guest speakers examine and extrapolate Victoria’s cultural narratives through an analysis of the material history of basalt within the framework of deep time. From shaping the Victorian landscape to in-turn being reshaped by humans, basalt transforms into foundations, iconic buildings and streets of our urban centres in the form of bluestone. It is critical that we understand bluestone not only as relic, as symbol, as commodity, but as lava flow, geographic modifier and as a definitive carrier of indigenous and colonial stories. Exploring these relationships may generate new readings of the past and new perspectives of a future fast approaching.

Opening hours: Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th March 2019. 10am-5pm Participating Artists: Nic Burridge, Catherine Evans, Will Heathcote, Therese Keogh, Katrin Koenning, Georgia Nowak, Kenzee Patterson, Steaphan Paton, Eugene Perepletchikov, Tilman Robinson, Philip Samartzis, Zoe Scoglio, Melanie Upton, Artist's Film Workshop, James Wright.
