Philip Brophy will discuss his new series of digital animations, video projections and prints, collectively titled Colour Me Dead.
Brophy's six new digital works have been created in parallel to the first 6 chapters of his examination of over 3,000 artworks in his forthcoming 18-chapter book of the same name—a virtual tome which examines how the nude has historically been posed, lit, depicted, rendered and transformed.
Colour Me Dead is the third in the series of Vizard Foundation Contemporary Art Projects, a creative initiative of the Vizard Foundation which offers artists a $30,000 grant to produce new work. The projects are designed to encourage mid-career and senior artists to take risks and explore new directions in their practice.
No booking required. More information about the exhibition here.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
