13 Australian contemporary artists challenge how colour and form influence abstraction.

It's easy to look at abstract art with an air of confusion, yet it is this initial reaction that strikes at the core of the discipline. The very soul of the principle of abstraction is to challenge a point of view, a way of thinking, or an entire mindset.

Superposition of three types gathers brand new and specially commissioned works from 13 Australian artists who have spent their careers experimenting and pushing the boundaries of their craft. The exhibition focuses on challenging conceptions of colour and form in art by displaying works that use varying media to create new and unique ways of expressing dissent from traditionalist art.

The exhibition takes place at Artspace, one of Sydney's leaders in contemporary art, from February to April, and will combine not only the colourist work by Sydney Ball, Rebecca Baumann, live-artist Huseyin Sami and a host of others, it will also incorporate audiovisual performances, including a choreographed experience from Shelley Lasica.
