• Peter Kennedy: selected works 1970–2002

    24 Apr 2002 to 30 Jun 2002
    Curator: Bala Starr

    The Australian art historian, Anne Marsh, has described Peter Kennedy as ‘one of Australia’s most astute commentators on the late twentieth century.’ This major survey-style exhibition of Kennedy’s practice provides opportunity to view a broad selection of the artist’s work spanning a thirty-year period.

    The range of works includes spectacular neon installations from the 1990s, and watercolours, drawings, photographs, and performance recordings. Works are drawn from the artist’s own collection as well as from private and public collections around Australia. Kennedy has produced new work especially for this exhibition.
