• Sophisticated Simple Living

    Nishi is Australia’s most radically sustainable mixed-use building and apartment complex and represents the third and final stage of the NewActon precinct and responds to our more communal, more cosmopolitan and more world-wise ways of being. Nishi is the new beacon for more responsible, sustainable living in Canberra because it brings together the notions of community and environmental positivism in the one place.

  • Make Your Move

    NewActon South is the striking centrepiece of NewActon precinct; a sensuous glass, steel and concrete curvilinear apartment tower that transcends the everyday through its quality of thought, exacting craftsmanship, distinctive materiality and ever-present integration of contemporary art.

    Poke Something That Bites

    The first solo exhibition from Cohen Gum

    Cohen is an Australian designer and artist, with a particular interest in mental illness. His work draws people in with bright, almost cheerful colours, before leaving the viewer with a feeling of ice-cold dread once they truly absorb the content.

    ‘Poke Something That Bites’ is an attempt at visualising the mental and physical symptoms of an anxiety disorder through the mediums of illustration, character design and sculpture/object design.

    Influences behind Cohen’s bold illustrative style can be traced back to cartoons like Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and Invader Zim, where the lines between what was appropriate for children but was humorous for adults were often blurred. These conflicting themes continue to be a consistent undercurrent in Cohen’s work, with his art skipping from adolescent optimism to late-stage adult pessimism so quickly, you’d be forgiven for missing the subtle nuances as he attempts to tackle this often difficult subject matter.

    View the event here

    Stay in touch by following Cohen on Facebook or Subscribe to email updates.

    Launch  Friday 31st October
    Open daily  1 - 18 November
    Weekdays  11am - 3pm
    Weekends  11am - 4pm

    Monster and the Mare

    It’s Melbourne Cup time at the Monster kitchen and bar (well Australia wide actually). We are pretending that we are Melbournians for the day and really have the day off (no obligatory showing your face at work and faffing around on the email for an hour or so before heading out to ‘lunch’).
