One Place After Another: AC4CA is major exhibition uniting 13 artists from the Australian Centre for Concrete Art (AC4CA) group with all new site-specific large-scale wall paintings. Since its conception in WA in 2002, this international collective has been leading a global conversation with artists across generations and hailing from Perth, Fremantle, Melbourne, Amsterdam, London, Basel and Dijon.
The AC4CA was established by its Perth members in 2002 and was based on the ideals of Dutch De Stijl artist Theo van Doesburg and an interest in Minimalism and hard-edge geometric abstraction. The driving concept for the group is to transform outdoor community spaces with their striking site-specific non-representational works painted directly on urban walls, often with the help of friends and art students. Often the works are temporary and have since been painted over to make room for new projects by someone else in the group. It’s collegiate, open-ended and moves with the times and conversations around public art.
This full-colour, up-scaled expanded painting show will take place in and around the galleries and spaces of PICA.
