Overlapping Magisteria: The 2020 Macfarlane Commissions

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
Saturday 5 DecemberMonday 15 March

ACCA is pleased to present the second edition of the Macfarlane Commissions in 2020, continuing a multi-year partnership designed to support the production and presentation of ambitious new projects by contemporary artists.

The second iteration of this biennial series considers the role of biology, ecology, archaeology and site, as well as ideas of material transformation and alchemy, through artists who engage organic materials, laws of nature, deep time, ideas of growth and shapeshifting, as well as formlessness, entropy and abjection. It is intended that ACCA’s galleries will be transformed through intense sensory and material effect, with works encompassing living and artificial organisms and processes, and installations and assemblages of narrative and material significance.

Participating artists

Robert Andrew (Brisbane)

Mimosa Echard (Paris)

Sidney McMahon (Sydney)

Sam Petersen (Melbourne)

Isadora Vaughan (Melbourne)

The Macfarlane Commissions

The Macfarlane Commissions is a biennial series of exhibitions at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art featuring new commissions by emerging and mid-career Australian and international artists. Artists are invited to make a new large-scale work to be presented as a keynote project in ACCA’s exhibition program. The inaugural exhibition was held in the summer of 2018-19, with the second edition planned for ACCA’s winter season 2020.

The Macfarlane Fund

The Macfarlane Fund is a new philanthropic initiative established in 2017 to honour the life of respected Melbourne businessman Donald (Don) Macfarlane, who throughout his life took immense pleasure in the arts. The Macfarlane Fund’s primary focus is to offer financial support across the career span of artists, with three main funding streams developed at graduate, mid-career and senior levels.
