Field Libraries features a series of Emily Floyd"s works recently acquired by the Town Hall Gallery. The colourful sculptures double as bookshelves, stacked with an ever-expanding "fair use" library of booklets created by Floyd using excerpts from texts dedicated to eccentric perspectives on the subject of work including Zombie Marxism and Feminist Autonomism. Also on show are a series of unique state screen prints made in collaboration with Negative Press .

For Shape of the Life-World artists Alysia Rees and Samantha Semmens configure elements in the world around us as we try to make sense of our experience of these elements. The making of these sculptural works mirrors this process of making and remaking selves, relationships and environments in everyday life. Samantha Semmens and Alysia Rees are resident studio artists at Hawthorn Arts Centre. This is their first exhibition at Town Hall Gallery.

Forms of Play examines the way in which formalism is fundamental to notions of playfulness, interaction and learning. Featuring the work of three artists - Sarah crowEST, Jenny Zhe Chang and Henry Madin - who work with different ideas, materials and processes.
