BRAND NEW MASTER COPY
VENUE: UKS GALLERY, OSLO, NORWAY
ARTISTS: Julia Gorman, David Jolly, Ricky Swallow
CURATOR: Ricky Swallow, Max Delany and Bo Krister Wallstrom
Developed by Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces in response to an invitation by UKS Gallery to present a reciprocal exhibition in Oslo, (following Gertrude Street's presentation of the Norwegian Pavilion as part of the Melbourne International Biennial), Brand New Master Copy featured the work of three of Melbourne's most exciting younger artists - Julia Gorman, David Jolly and Ricky Swallow. Curated by Ricky Swallow, the exhibition and catalogue provided a significant opportunity for Melbourne artists to present their work in an international context. The project was also successful in consolidating relationships between artists and organisations in both centres, with ongoing projects and residencies undertaken in 2001. Brand New Master Copy was also accompanied at UKS Gallery by Blockbuster 99, a compilation of recent video works, selected by Ricky Swallow.
