We’re heading to regional Victoria to Wangaratta Art Gallery to collaborate for Pop! Reflections on Popular Culture, which runs from 24 November 2018 to 3 February 2019.
Throughout recent history, popular culture themes, aesthetics and sensibilities have informed what artists create, shaping the way we reflect on our culture and mirroring our values and culture back to us. POP! Reflections on Popular Culture explores this continual impulse through collaboration between Wangaratta Art Gallery and Arts Project Australia; featuring the work of Arts Project studio artists alongside invited contemporary artists and works from the Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection and broader community.
Featuring works by: Peter Atkins, Suzanne Barnes, Peter Ben, Jon Campbell, Boris Cipusev, Alan Constable, Georgina Cue, Emily Dober, Patrick Francis, Minna Gilligan, Bronwyn Hack, Kate Just, Kate Knight, Bobby Kyriakopoulos, Adrian Lazzaro, Michael Licenblat, Julian Martin, Clare McCracken, Mohsen Meysami, Julie Milton, Simon Paredes, Flossie Peitsch, Lisa Reid, Anthony Romagnano, Terry Williams and Paul Yore.
