Works by Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley will be included in A Different Temporality, at Monash University Museum of Art, Caufield, for the 2011 Melbourne International Arts Festival.
A Different Temporality considers time as subject and metaphor in Australian feminist art practice from 1975 through to 1985.
A period when women artists were agitating for recognition in the broader Australian art community, this was a remarkable time of change both for women and for Australia as a whole. Politically diverse, A Different Temporality unearths the flash points of a powerfully influential period.
Encompassing time-based media such as performance, photography and film, this exhibition is a provocative series of intrusions from a time of uncommon artistic fecundity.
Curated by Dr Kyla McFarlane, the exhibition also includes works by Micky Allan, Bonita Ely, Sue Ford, Helen Grace, Lyndal Jones and Jenny Watson.

Tom Nicholson's work will feature in the exhibition Second World, at Galerija Nova, Zagreb, Croatia and at Steirischer Herbst Festival, Graz, Austria
Second World relates to the notion of multifold worlds, possible, parallel, fictional, desired worlds, worlds different to the one we live in, in which the past might have played out differently and the future is not irrevocably determined by the present. But rather than slipping into a celebration of art as an endangered enclave of imagination and free creativity, Second World stays firmly entrenched in realities of the present, which happen to be dominated by debilitating dogma of inevitability.
The Zagreb project (15 September - 15 November 2011) also includes arists Maha Maamoun, Mona Marzouk, Isa Rosenberger, and a lecture by Bassam El Baroni.
The Graz project (23 September - 16 October 2011) also includes Jumana Emil Abboud, Yael Bartana, Nemanja Cvijanović, Decolonizing Architecture Art Residency / DAAR, Ruben Grigoryan, Marcelo Expósito & Verónica Iglesia, Bouchra Khalili, Daniel Knorr, Maha Maamoun, Mona Marzouk, Chan-Kyong Park, Lala Raščić , Marko Tadić.
