Australian artists from Sydney in Tokyo, a group show

The form of this exhibition takes its cue from the idea of a rolodex. A rolodex is a combination of the word rolling and index, it is a type of desktop contact organiser containing phone numbers, names and business cards. The exhibition stores indexes of an artist’s practice; a compact selection of their work. As a whole, the exhibit acts as an organised catalogue of some artists and illustrators from in and around Sydney.
This thematic device does not limit the type of work that has been included, but has facilitated a display that acts as a catalogue or an index of artworks and importantly, artists. This index exhibition will hopefully indicate the activities taking place in our studios and workspaces in Sydney, Australia.
