Sydney/Paris, Australia/France,


IS-projects, SNO and ParisCONCRET present a tripartite group show celebrating the accelerated interconnectivity now made possible by the internet. This is the means whereby these 3 project houses from 3 different countries have enjoyed an evolving relationship. It has not only given divergent practices a more immediate context for exchange but has also become a tool by which artists may engage in a dialogue on an international platform. The display consists of 30 visual outcomes in the form of limited edition T-shirts achieved via an online process by associated artists invited from around the globe. These are installed in relation to a wall image produced by artists in long distance collaboration, highlighting again the potential for developing the non-objective through the internet.


IS-projects was founded in December 2007 with a gathering of twenty artists from Australia, Europe and USA in the exhibition entitled UND Jetzt. Since then IS-projects has initiated exhibitions and therefore meetings between artists, art-lovers and collectors. Iemke van Dijk and Guido Winkler, both artists, transform their house twice a year into an exhibition space. IS-projects organizes group shows, connecting artists from The Netherlands with artists working abroad. IS-projects also publishes the so called IS-boxes, limited edition sets of prints/multiples. And thus, providing accessible and 'mail friendly' art. IS-projects is intimate space, internet space, international space, international style, but above all the art that we show is what it is.

SNO/SYDNEY NON OBJECTIVE Contemporary Art Projects established in 2005 in a small factory warehouse allotment, is now housed in an Arts & Crafts style building in Marrickville, Sydney. The central idea that informed the inception and management of SNO’s program remains today. It is based on a critical appraisal of contemporary Australian art and how it relates to a broader international spectrum. The selected projects generally reflect a wide variety of approaches to the plastic arts, new media, or any form that may provide a deepening of the contemporary investigation into non-objective, concrete, and abstract art in general. SNO attempts to critically balance different levels of artistic experience, and the specialist program aims to sustain a policy of innovation and integration of new ideas, often by presenting established, dead and emerging artists together.

ParisCONCRET is a non-profit association which exists to : 
- create a point of convergence in Paris for artists working in the field of 'concrete' art 
 (including all non-objective, minimal and reductive work) 
- encourage exchanges between international artists and facilitate collaborative projects 
- promote recent work by artists working in this domain. The ParisCONCRET project space opened in January 2009 and has since presented 34 exhibitions showcasing the work of some 65 artists.
