CCAS is partnering with ANCA (Australian National Capital Artists) for Blaze#7 the annual exhibition of emerging ACT artists. Blaze is one of the years’ most popular shows with some amazing new talent involved. Curators Jan Falsone (ANCA) and David Broker (CCAS) are working with Hannah Bath, Julia Boyd, Elly Freer, Holly Granville-Edge, Ruby Green, Patrick Larmour, Trish Roan, Roman Stachurski and Steph Wilson to produce and exhibition that pushes traditional media in ways that are more often than not amusing. This is a group who take commonplace, sometimes kitsch, objects to be used ironically as materials for works in ways that will surprise audiences.
