Contemporary Australian and International Art

Recent acquisitions of Australian and international art. Some of the works included explore the representation of race: from African–American artist Kara Walker’s screenprint Emancipation Approximation scene #5, to British-born, Trinidad-based artist Chris Ofili, whose prints Black Kiss represent the Biblical story of Judas betraying Christ with a kiss in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Art Exhibition previously on at Art Gallery of South Australia in Australia.

Other works, such as the moving-image work by Daniel von Sturmer and a large-scale drawing by Mira Gojak explore both formal and psychological terrain. Gojak’s exploratory line poses and resolves formal problems through movement across a white ground.

Programs for this display include:

Free Floor Talk with artist Mira Gojak, Tuesday 23 February, 12.45pm

Free Floor Talk with curator Jane Messenger, Tuesday 9 March, 12.45pm
