    Meet the person behind the captivating Male//Chair exhibition when photographer Garrie Maguire returns to Sunday Arts Magazine.

    Australian born, Garrie Maguire has been passionate about photography from a young age.  He is also owner of the XYZ Gallery in Docklands.  Garrie “uses photography to understand the world and his place in it.”(https://garrie.xyz)   Garrie’s Male//Chair exhibition is currently on display in the Pride Gallery at the Victorian Pride Centre.  To Garrie, a chair seems like a natural prop for somebody to hide behind, cover themselves thus feel more comfortable.  It explores the diversity and totality of males.  “There was no names…..everybody got to show the audience as much or as little as they wanted to show them”(Garrie on Sunday Arts Magazine, 21st April 2024)

    Learn how Garrie defines his role as the photographer in the exhibition; where that role stops and where the exhibition speaks for itself.

    Hear about the exhibition he had on display at Federation Square.  Why was that exhibition so significant and important to him?  Find out Garrie’s interpretation of how the scholar is seen in Australian culture, also how the scholar is looked upon in Chinese culture.  Listen to what Garrie has to say about another exhibition he has running at Gallery XYZ.

    Both exhibitions run until 28th April.

    Melbourne born, Gavin Brown has done fine art for forty years, and has exhibited his work in numerous exhibitions.  The main theme in his work is the fascination of collage and assemblage.  In Gavin’s own words, “this work should be monochromatic, a plethora of images, tumbling and falling and creating new compositions organically, as if they’ve just been dug up and are are speaking to us from the ancient world.”  (Gavin Brown on the Fortyfivedownstairs website.)*

    London born,  award-winning graphic designer and full-time artist Chris Orr has exhibited his work worldwide.  He has published four hundred limited edition prints in lithography, etching and silkscreen.

    Gavin and Chris have exhibited their work in the Motherboard Exhibition, taking place at Fortyfivedownstairs in Melbourne, opening Saturday, 27th April and finishing Saturday, 4th May.  This is the third exhibition Gavin and Chris have done together.
