I will be curating the touring exhibition Australian Gothic to be exhibited at Project Space/Spare Room, Melbourne and Directors Lounge, Berlin in Feb 2007. The exhibition will be a survey show of current emerging and established Australian video artists. Evidenced work will reflect a 'Gothic' mode, as further discussed by Gerry Turcotte in his essay 'Australian Gothic' (Turcotte, 1995), including Brendan Lee's Two Birds with One Stone, Brie Trenerry's fly infested Sleep Paralysis and Tammy Honey's pop-desire Threesome. Future exhibition venues in the UK and USA will be added later in the year.

A colour catalogue will be available closer to the exhibition opening or via email me: shaun.wilson @ rmit.edu.au.
