Join Tony Albert, one of the most exciting Indigenous Australian artists working today, alongside Review editor Tim Douglas for an evening of art and conversation at the Queensland Art Gallery.
After a Q&A session, Tony Albert will take you through his major solo exhibition, Visible. The exhibition profiles his most recent work and includes object-based collage, painting, photography, video and installation.
Artworks featured in Visible interrogate representations of Aboriginal people through a mix of humour and poignancy. Highlights include the artist’s epic appropriations and re-appropriations of kitsch ‘Aboriginalia’ and the award-winning photographic series ‘Brothers’ 2013.
Spaces are limited so book now.
