2014 Season IV
Jimmy Nuttall is an emerging multi-disciplinary artist from Melbourne, Australia. His practice shifts between video and scattered installations/assemblages that engage a dialogue on a politics of (queer) self; personally and interpersonally. His work is spurred by an ongoing concern or obsession with the institutions it exists within ranging from the cultural landscapes to the caging art-world. Humour and conviviality are deeply appreciated forms of articulation in his practice.
Jimmy has exhibited widely within in Australia and internationally. Recent solo exhibitions include: ‘SYDNEY’ (2014) at Darlington Installation Project, Sydney, ‘GOOD’ (2014) at Platform Contemporary and ‘FONTANA ACQUA' (2013) Dudspace, Melbourne. Recent group shows include ‘Dudproject #1’, Dudspace (2014), ‘DUMMY’, Mailbox (2014), ‘IT’S SOMETIMES THAT YOU MOVE TOO LOUD’ (2014), part of Gay and Lesbian Midsumma festival, ‘Kenneth Biennale, part of Third/Fourth Melbourne artist facilitated Biennial’, Rearview Gallery, Melbourne and ‘Hatched: National Graduate Exhibition’ (2013), Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts.
Jimmy was the recipient of an Australia Council ArtStart Grant (2014) and a National Association of Visual Arts' for professional practice (2012).
This is the first residency Jimmy has undertaken.
