Are you a lover of contemporary art, in a cool & unique historic setting, then why not join the TMAGgots over a glass of something good & a nibble & join us at the Rosny Barn to view Art? Art! Art ...
Art? Art! Art … is an exhibition of beautiful &provocative works by some of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists: Abdul Abdullah, Pat Brassington, Matt Calvert, Michael Cook, Amanda Davies, Fiona Hall, Ben Quilty, Lucienne Rickard, Cyrus Tang, Nathan Taylor, Daniel von Sturmer and Megan Walch.
The artworks have been especially selected to fascinate both those viewers who are curious about contemporary art and those who may be rather sceptical or confused about its value. After all, what are we supposed to do, think and feel about contemporary art? The exhibition is an opportunity to check out the artworks, and also for viewers who want to have their say about the work, to do so in a safe and anonymous environment where all thoughts and responses are valid.
The exhibition has been curated by Dr Jane Deeth, who runs a consultant called New Audiences for Art and has over 25 years’ experience working in the visual arts in Tasmania. Jane is particularly interested in the different reactions viewers have to challenging contemporary art, and how we might figure out what it’s all about.
Join Jane & the crew from the Rosny Barn site (run by the Clarence City Council) as they host a mid-Winter evening - Drinks, nibbles & enlightening conversation supplied.
