For three months fortyfivedownstairs will be hosting Greg Ades as its artist in residence. Positioned in a studio space at the back of the large gallery Greg will be working in the space on material for his upcoming exhibition from 16-27 July.
“Usually you work isolated in the studio with a rough plan of the final show, but when you put it up and look at it there arises new possibilities in the work. In a sense thoughts go through you regarding what could have been, however working next to the space I think will produce that otherwise might not happen ordinarily until the show is over” says Greg.
Greg currently teaches at Latrobe College of Art and Design and is involved with Port Melbourne Primary School as a teacher’s aid. Greg also works closely with, and was the Director of, Artists for Kids Culture; an organisation that seeks to provide arts and cultural opportunities to kids experiencing disadvantage in their lives due to factors including poverty, health or social issues or cultural dislocation.
