FOCUS Invites: Meet the curators

Kiron Robinson

Kiron Robinson has curated a number of exhibitions – Is/Is not, West Space, Melbourne, 2016;The Big East and The Big East (Biggerer), site-responsive exhibitions, various locations, Melbourne, 2013 & 2014; Hevy, Conical, Melbourne, 2011; Polar, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne, 2007; Doubt, Conical, Melbourne, 2006 – testing the conventions or art practice, production, exhibition and the relationships between these states as they relate to an art practice.

His curatorial interest is underpinned by a deep personal questioning within his own artistic practice that utilises a range of material strategies to investigate the idea of doubt, faith and failure as constructive devices. Robinson’s work continually chases ways of articulating, that which, by its own definition, is beyond articulation. Robinson has exhibited his work widely both nationally and internationally.

Recent solo exhibitions include: We told ourselves we needed separate beds to sleep, Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne, 2015; Hello, you’ve made it, Sarah Scout Presents, Melbourne, 2015;

Recent group exhibitions include: What happens now?, Melbourne Biennial Lab curated by Natalie King, Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne; Vertigo, Galeri Soemardja, Indonesia, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tapei, POSCO Art Gallery Seoul, 2014; Immanent Landscape, Kurumuya Museum, Japan, 2012;
