Visionairs Gallery Asia is proud to present NO BOUNDARIES: Australian Contemporary Art and Australian Indigenous Art, an exhibition of an important private collection of notable Australian contemporary and Indigenous artists. Iconic works by Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri, Tommy Watson, Naata Nungurrayi, Nyurapayia Nampitjinpa ("Mrs Bennet") alongside works by significant Australian practitioners such as John Perceval, Jasper Knight and Adam Cullen, amongst others, comprise this outstanding exhibition.

From the rhythmic, abstract compositions of Australian indigenous artists derivative of their unique and centuries old culture to contemporary interpretations and re-interpretations of the Australian landscape in all its variations, "No Boundaries" provides an extraordinary overview of the diverse artistic practices of this island nation.

Curated by the CEO and Founder of Visionairs Gallery, "No Boundaries" will be held at Visionairs Gallery/Art Safe, at Expo (Changi point) from 14 April through to 26 May 2018. To be officially opened on the 12th April, this exhibition will be a landmark event in the arts and cultural calendar for Singapore and the region.

"No Boundaries" is a collaboration between international art consultancy Velvenoir and Visionairs Gallery.

Alexandra Schafer, Managing Director of Velvenoir believes this collaboration is significant, timely and culturally important for the region: "Appreciating the demand for Aboriginal art has increased over the years, I am truly thrilled about this collaborative exhibition, where we can offer access to an outstanding private art collection, comprising a selection of contemporary Australian Art and Aboriginal Art at the Visionairs Gallery in Singapore. The collection has been carefully sourced and made available through our expert, Lydie Blandeau, with curatorial advices from our VELVENOIR Blue-Chip Advisor, Catherine Asquith, who will join us from Melbourne. When acquiring art through VELVENOIR it is vital for me to offer expert guidance throughout the entire process. With this exhibition we are able to share exclusive insights about our services, introduce our experts and elaborate on the art we are able to access."

Lydie Blandeau, CEO and Founder of Visionairs Gallery, believes this event will provide not only an important insight into Australian Art but with the support of Velvenoir, sees the collaboration as an excellent opportunity to highlight the importance of investing in the arts with expert guidance.

"Through Visionairs, I made it my mission to return to the true values of artistic creation. An ethical vision with a social conscience. Art must be socially responsible and contribute to our understanding of the world and other people. This private exhibition and international collaboration allows me to do so."

Catherine Asquith, Art Advisor, and head of Blue Chip Brokerage at Velvenoir says:

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with Lydie Blandeau of Visionaires Gallery in presenting this extraordinary collection of Australian contemporary and Indigenous art. I have always been a passionate advocate for bridging the gap between the Australian art market and its international counterparts, believing wholeheartedly in the universality of the work and practices of Australian artists. As the title of the exhibition "No Boundaries" declares, contemporary art in all its forms and derivative of its many and varied cultural backgrounds can provide a counter-intuitive response to formal 'geographic' delineations. It is my strong hope this exhibition of a private collection will resonate with the audience of Singapore and its region."
