Avoiding Myth and Message

Australian artists and the literary world

avoiding myth & message is primarily an MCA collection based project featuring artists whose works have been informed by Australian literature. The exhibition looks at some of the major themes within both the literary and visual traditions and considers where the two streams of creativity overlap thematically: the landscape/interior, text and image, urban life, politics and the personal.

Art Exhibition previously on at Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) in Sydney precinct, New South Wales, Australia.
