Lisa Jones Spheroid monochrome (paper, rubber rope, pencil, Glassroom)
Spheroid monochrome is part of Lisa’s Residual drawings, an on-going series of experimentations in creating three-dimensional drawings. Transitioning from two- to three-dimensions invests a sculptural approach to the work and thus becomes a response to space. Each drawing will have additional intervention from the artist during their Glassroom installation which will blur the boundaries of studio/exhibition space.
The remains of any day
The remains of any day is on show in the Glassroom from Monday 6 August until Tuesday 28 August 2018. The Glassroom is on the ground floor of National Art School Building 28 and open during its campus hours.
The remains of any day 2011 (floor vinyl, built location)
The stone house is a resilient, protective structure. The remains of any day (2011) forms its mortar remains, reflecting on the eventual fragility of even the most fortified and powerful structures. Everywhere, every day, the structures that govern and shape our lives, from those within the private domain of the home through to the hierarchies of regimes and empires, are both asserted and challenged.

‘Crossing borders’ is a fundraising exhibition of small works of art by established and emerging National Art School associated artists. Curated by Amber Hearn in collaboration with The National Art School in support of Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS), with 100% of profits being donated to RACS to continue their vital work, providing legal assistance to people seeking asylum in Australia. Each year Crossing Borders has raised approximately $10000 to go toward RACS.
‘Crossing Borders’ is an annual group fundraising exhibition project founded by Amber Hearn in 2014 whilst completing her Honours degree at The National Art School.
Amber was inspired to form the project as a way to create a platform to bring artists together with the wider community, using their skills to facilitate an accessible way for the public to contribute to a cause that she deeply believes needs supporting.
‘Crossing Borders’ showcases a range of work donated by National Art School associated Artists ranging from painting to ceramics and sculpture with 100% of the profits donated to RACS. RACS is a not-for-profit refugee legal service, providing expert advice and casework assistance to financially disadvantaged individuals seeking asylum both in the community and in immigration detention. Since the Federal Government’s funding cuts were introduced in April 2014 which erased 85% of their funding, RACS now relies more heavily on donations to continue its invaluable work. The future of RACS relies on the broad support of individuals and institutions. For further information about RACS please visit their website: www.racs.org.au. Each year the Crossing Borders exhibition has raised approximately $10,000 for RACS.
This exhibition provides a platform for artists associated with National Art School to contribute to this national issue in a practical way by donating and making work for the exhibition. Crossing Borders has been an important part of the artist community, providing an opportunity for emerging and established artists to unite together for a greater cause.

Entering a Roundabout is the first project in Glassroom Projects. See more of Charles Cooper’s work here.
The Glassroom is the glassed-in space on the ground floor of Building 28 on the National Art School campus. It has been used to show student and staff works since it was constructed as part of the renovation of the building a few years ago. Glassroom Projects aims to formalise this use into a more focused program with different projects over the year, organised by Margaret Roberts.
Because the Glassroom is not a standard exhibition space, artists are encouraged to work site-specifically. Thus projects might engage with the Glassroom site via its physical space, its other formal qualities, its resemblance to a vitrine, its location under the chapel or at the centre of the campus, and so on. Site-specificity can be understood broadly – to include any of the later terms such as site-responsiveness and so on, and to accommodate arguments over the term since it began to be used in the 1970s. For example while some artists insist that the term be limited to artwork that cannot be moved (reflecting Richard Serra’s claim over Tilted Arc), this program proposes that movability of a site-specific work should depend on how it is engaging with the site, or what the site actually is. If it is the unique history, use or shape of the Glassroom itself, for example, then movability may make an artwork seem less site-specific. However if the site is the actual space we bodily occupy or the formal qualities found in many built places, or the whole planet even, then parts of that site may be found in many places, making movability more reasonable because the site is so big.
