Arts Space Wodonga is a vibrant and accessible contemporary art gallery and multipurpose venue managed by Wodonga Council. Located within the heart of the central business area, the gallery sits within the prominent arts precinct incorporating the Wodonga Library and The Cube Wodonga performing arts centre.

With up to 12 exploratory exhibitions per year, the gallery offers a unique space for northern Victorian artists to present, discuss and communicate their practices to 40,000 plus visitors per annum. Exhibitions extend from emerging and professional practising contemporary artists, to touring exhibitions and projects in conjunction with cultural organisations.

The one-room gallery is a professionally curated space that accommodates events including performance, dance, film and functions within a cultural context.

Current exhibition: ... like a dog without a bone Nicholas Kleindienst

Friday, October 6 to Saturday, October 28, 2017

Heidegger’s Dasein is thrown into the world, finding its facticity as the given conditions of that world. That is, a Being finds itself existing in a physical position and the conditions of that position set the Being’s parameters for
existence. Authentic existence, according to Heidegger, is when a Being realises its own existence rather than an existence ascribed from outside, by das man, a proverbial They.

Taking Aesop’s fable of The Tortoise and the Hare as an example of breaking free from the conditions of one’s existence, the exhibition questions the possibilities for living outside of one’s facticity.

Opening: Friday, October 6, 5.30pm

Fridays on My Mind: Friday, October 6, 5.30pm to 8.30pm

In Soap Opera, Susie Losch celebrates daily rituals. Her works evoke the viewer to reflect upon personal and private spaces and upon moments within the routine of daily life. These spaces can be places of rejuvenation and contemplation where transformation may occur.

Losch’s works play on Duchamp’s readymades through her use of found objects. Her innovative installations created from everyday objects and substances are presented in a quirky and thought-provoking fashion. Losch uses repetition to further surprise and engage her audience.

Opening: Saturday, November 4, 2017, 2pm
Fridays on My Mind: Friday, November 10, 5.30pm to 8.30pm
