Thursday 5 May - Saturday 4 June
Two contemporary artists have selected works from the Museum of Contemporary Art Collection in this provocative and insightful exhibition. Sculptor Bruce Armstrong has chosen works incorporating birds as he considers them universally meaningful images to artists. Indigenous artist Julie Dowling has nominated artworks that reflect personal narratives and issues of colonialism and identity. Included are works by renowned Australian artists such as Sidney Nolan, Imants Tillers, Bill Henson, Vivianne Shark LeWitt, Peter Booth and David Daymirringu.
Exhibition organised and toured by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia.
