Canberra Contemporary Art Space’s annual emerging art exhibition, BLAZE, is one of the local art community’s most anticipated events. Held in CCAS’s flagship space at Gorman Arts Centre, the exhibition showcases Canberra based artists at the outset of their careers. This year’s edition, BLAZE TWELVE is curated by Alexander Boynes and features the work of five new contemporary artists working across video, painting, sculpture, installation and performance art practices; Luke Aleksandrow, Riley Beaumont, Rowan Kane, Sanne Koelemij and Mei-Lynn Wilkinson. Like the previous 11 instalments, BLAZE TWELVE includes ambitious and challenging works – it is a celebration of the here and now, the up and coming.
