It started with three artists in 2015, increasing to six the following year. With the opening of new premises, Tacit Galleries is hosting 23 artists from across Melbourne and Victoria. The exhibition is curated by Emma Langridge and TJ Bateson.

The selected artists have diverse practices and use disparate media, yet all work falls within non-object and abstract parameters. The curation is based on a common theme or evocation visible in the final artwork and its methods and thinking: the images each create a place of calm and spaciousness, allowing the viewer to ruminate and reflect rather than react.

Many of the artists take a meditative, immersive approach to their practice, performing repetitive or incremental actions to form work using a generative or accretive method. Form and line may relate to music, syncopation, a mapping or charting of time, space and place. Others take meditative thought and ideas as their subject, exploring and employing notions of mindfulness and transcendence. Still others provide a space of clarity and contemplation. offering a respite for the eyes and mind.

The expansive interval between hand and eye, marks made and perceived is explored and presented in myriad forms, providing a location for silent reflection.
