Shaun Gladwell is one of Australia’s most prominent young artists, working extensively internationally in the medium of video. His practice critically engages personal experience as well as wider speculation upon art history and the dynamics of contemporary culture. His recent projects in video have made discursive links between historical models and understanding of the body in space, such as the flâneur and contemporary cultural figures including the skateboarder, the motocross rider, the freestyle BMX rider, break-dance crews, a capoeira practitioner, and other physical and street performers. An Artspace exhibition toured by Museums and Galleries NSW.

To be launched on Saturday 30 August, 5.30pm
The launch follows the Media Art Curating Forum, Saturday 30 Aug, 2-5pm.
