The Trailer Project :: The Lure of the Sea
15 - 22 June 2018
The Quad

Australia is a huge country, not very populated, the flows are slow. Living in a small town in northern NSW, the idea of a mobile gallery dedicated to bring Art into public spaces germinated.
 
The Trailer is an exhibition space devoted to encouraging all disciplines - painting, photography and/or installations. It is also a mobile projection unit allowing for outdoor slide-shows or movie and video presentations. Inspired by the history of mobile movie theatres, the trailer project reaches near and far communities and in the process creates a reciprocated exchange of ideas.
 
The Lure of the Sea
 
The Lure of the Sea consists of four solo exhibitions: Bob Cooper, John Witzig, Alby Falzon, Dick Hoole.
 
It is a look on Australian surf culture from the 1950s to the 1970s, drawing on original photos shot by influential figures within the surfing world. All these photographers are – and were – essentially surfers. When these images were made, it was not about exploring the road-movie genre, or even aiming at documenting their lives. It was simply about their common passion, their original and pioneering lifestyle, and their strong sense of belonging to an outcast, close-knit community.
 
 
JOHN WITZIG
 
15 – 23 June 2018 | The Quad
 
John Witzig is an internationally renowned surf photographer and journalist. He contributed his first article to Surfing World magazine in 1963; a controversial 1967 cover story in the U.S. magazine Surfer cemented his international reputation as an important commentator on the sport. He edited Surf International and in 1970 co-founded Tracks, a groundbreaking, journalistic Australian surfing magazine that The Surfer’s Journal publisher Steve Pezman called “maybe the hippest youth culture magazine being published in the world at that time”. In 2013, the New York art publisher Rizzoli released A Golden Age: Surfing’s Revolutionary 1960s and ’70s, a comprehensive collection of Witzig’s photographs. In August 2014, the exhibition Arcadia opened at the Australian National Portrait Gallery in Canberra featuring over 40 photographs. Arcadia toured to Geelong in Victoria, and the Tweed Regional Gallery in New South Wales.
