X-Field is a collaborative group who work across the disciplines of art, architecture, landscape architecture and urbanism. We have identified the gaps that conventional practice has marginalised as fertile grounds for intervention: places of becoming, transaction, negotiation and improvisation.
This exhibition has been supported by the Design Research Institute and RMIT School of Architecture and Design through the SRC funds.
This exhibition runs in conjunction with:
Affirmative Architecture Symposium
RMIT Storey Hall, 20–21 August 2010
Stony Rises Project
The Stony Rises Project is an exhibition of art and design works all derived from sustained, multifaceted investigation into the Western District of Victoria.

Vicki Couzens, Lesley Duxbury, Ruth Johnstone, Seth Keen, Gini Lee, Jenny Lowe, Marion Manifold, Laurene Vaughan, Kit Wise and Carmel Wallace
Working in the diverse fields of art, architecture, design, geography, history and cultural theory, and using the drystone wallas the impetus for initial research, each of the participants in the project – Vicki Couzens, Lesley Duxbury, Ruth Johnstone, Seth Keen, Gini Lee, Jenny Lowe, Marion Manifold, Kit Wise, Laurene Vaughan and Carmel Wallace – produced a variety of works in response to their intensive immersion in the region. Each has made a work that is socially engaged and anchored in the broad frame of landscape. About The Works.
By focusing on the different histories of the area the exhibition brings to the surface the intricate relationships of people with place, foreigners on new lands, and colonial and indigenous narratives.The exhibition will be presented at RMIT Gallery in Melbourne August 2010, after which it will tour to the Art Gallery of Ballarat (Vic), Horsham Art Gallery (Vic), Warrnambool Art Gallery (Vic), and Riddoch Art Gallery (S.A.)

Black Tea House: Memorial to the 2009 Bushfires, Terunobu Fujimori
Installation, Shelter: On Kindness, Exhibition, RMIT Gallery
Tea House memorial to bushfires seeks a new home
25 November 2009
RMIT University and RMIT Gallery will gift the Terunobu Fujimori work, Black Tea House: Memorial to the 2009 Bushfires, to a local Victorian community affected by the disaster.
RMIT Gallery Director and Chief Curator, Suzanne Davies, said there was an amazing response from gallery visitors and critics to the work – constructed within the RMIT Gallery for the Shelter: On Kindness exhibition – with innumerable requests that it be found a new home once the exhibition was over.
Professor Fujimori constructed his contemporary tea house using charred wood from areas affected by the Victorian bushfires, with the help of RMIT Architecture student volunteers.

SHELTER: ON KINDNESS
Presented by RMIT Gallery in association with ArtPlay
as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival
Curators: Suzanne Davies, Vanessa Gerrans and Sarah Morris
RMIT Gallery brings together artists, architects, writers and thinkers to reflect on what qualities of environment and circumstance afford us shelter in a physical and metaphorical sense. Is shelter a sense of safe haven, a place to protect ourselves from the natural elements, from the unrelenting pressures of modern life or, perhaps, a place or space to reflect on our innermost thoughts? Shelter: On Kindness is about tea houses, contemporary architecture, cattlemen’s huts and aboriginal shades. It examines ideas of nurture and kindness through the filter of the writings of psychoanalyst and author Adam Phillips and historian Barbara Taylor in On Kindness, Penguin, 2009.
