This week Nothing Beside Remains opens at the Gertrude Contemporary in Fitzroy, Australia. Curated by Tara McDowell, the exhibition features work by Zarouhie Abdalian, Tony Birch, Trisha Donnelly, Harun Farocki, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Susan Jacobs, Otar Karalashvili, Ash Kilmartin, Nicholas Mangan, Scott Mitchell and Saskia Schut, Laurie Richards, Fred Sandback, and Allan Sekula. The show “considers the building that houses Gertrude Contemporary as a living organism, accruing its history over time, with each renovation, addition, coat of paint, and temporary resident.”
There are a number of events being held in conjunction with the exhibition, including an artist talk with Zarouhie Abdalian this Saturday, July 26 at 2pm. For the full list, click here. The exhibition is on view through August 23.

Imran Qureshi is interviewed in this post from Kaleidoscope, 

[P]eople read my work as having Western roots. Society everywhere is so inspired by Western culture. Like we wear jeans everyday; we don’t wear shalwar kameez. Jeans have become a very traditional thing here in Lahore. Everybody wears this, so no one notices that it might be strange. We are so exposed to Western art and ways of looking. But interestingly, in my work, this kind of abstract mark-making and the drawing quality derive from traditional miniature painting.

Hamra Abbas,Please do not step 2 Site-specific installation. 2008

“In Please do not step 2 (2008) Hamra Abbas uses thin interlacing strips of paper to form the Arabian stalactite work that has been stuck to the floor of the gallery. This dramatic and at the same time delicate and ephemeral work is around 30 meters long and crosses the natural path followed by visitors to the exhibition. In the form of a text, it traces out clear message, despite its size, whispers ‘Please do not step’”
