Narelle Jubelin’s exhibition Cannibal Tours is a contemporary companion to Modern times and proposes an encounter with modernism through the artist’s own practice and the photographic archive of Albert Tucker.

The exhibition brings together, for the first time, the two versions of Jubelin’s Trade delivers people, a ‘cannibalised’ installation comprising the artist’s petit-point renditions intercut with readymade ‘primitive’ tribal masks and other museum objects and artworks, including Sidney Nolan’s celebrated painting Boy and the moon (1939-40). This installation is juxtaposed with Jubelin’s work Boxed Set (2006), eleven petit-point renditions of images representing formative childhood brushes with modernism, and photographs by Albert Tucker referencing his own encounters with aspects of modernism in Europe.
