Tread lightly for this ground may be hollow

Detroit Residency Exhibition

5th - 26th March 2015

This new exhibition draws from Rowlands recent Australia Council residency at Popps Packing artist studios in Detroit USA. Through photography and film this body of work celebrates moments in which Rowlands finds a balance between the visible distress Detroit has experienced and the optimism that was so evident in the community he was surrounded by.

Opening Night March 5th 6 - 8pm

Featuring Oliver Mann (Live)
+ Support from Lisa Salvo


Oliver Mann is something of an anomaly in the music world. Working across various musical strands and languages, the Melbourne bass‑baritone's output is defined by its adherence to the classical canon as much as its re-imagining. While steadily building a reputation and career within an operatic context - including various roles with Opera Australia and the Victorian Opera - it's the coalescence between Mann's classical work and wider musical expressions that make his oeuvre so intriguing.

Washington - Insomnia - Opera House - Sydney Festival 2012

Finally I've compiled a few shots from the show. It was an incredible outcome. Sold out show for the Sydney Festival and standing ovation! Incredible thanks to composer/producer Daniel Denholm who had the vision.

Drum Magazine review..........Robbie Rowlands’ set design for the show, titled Insomnia, was absolutely stunning, evoking a top-floor old-world New York City apartment with touches of pre-war Berlin. Featuring a large windo (which doubled as a screen where short pieces of video art were displayed) and industrial props across a warm and romantic palate of lighting. DCR

Insomnia - The Opera House - Sydney

As part of the Sydney Festival working in collaboration with Megan Washington & Daniel Denholm I have created a large scale set design which will also feature projects of many of my object reconfigurations and site interventions.
