  • 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.

    Cool Combo

    ‘Cool Combo’ is an exhibition of shields from the highlands of Papua New Guinea alongside artworks from MILS Gallery, Sydney and affiliated artists.

    With a focus on finding visual relations and combinations between two very different cultures -The Highlander tribes of PNG and a diqwad of artists from Canberra and Sydney. If it explores any theme seriously, it is that in visual arts the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts.

    Whilst each warrior carves and paints their shield to function as an individual weapon and ‘artwork’, the totality of one tribe’s shields, when placed side by side, have to form a single visual object. This way, combined individual expression creates a grand glowing shape that intimidates the rival warriors. This collective military purpose of the shields is reflected in the exhibition’s title, ‘Cool Combo’.
    Some of the items on show have seen the blood and gore of close range combat. Even in present day, Highlander Shields are being used in tribal warfare, in recent years the fighting has come to the attention of ESPN who are currently trying to buy the broadcasting rights to it.
