Over 200 artworks by Gordon Bennett ranging from installation and sculptural assemblage to painting, drawing, video and ceramics will be on display at Brisbane’s GOMA. Drawn from private and public collections, this is the first major survey of the artist’s work in over a decade.
“Gordon Bennett voraciously consumed art history, current affairs, rap music and fiction, and processed it all into an unflinching critique of how identities are constituted and how history shapes individual and shared cultural conditions,” GOMA Director Chris Saines says.
Lead curator of the exhibition, Zara Stanhope, Curatorial Manager of Asian and Pacific Art, QAGOMA, says “Unfinished Business celebrates Bennett as an artist whose prolific body of work continues to encourage audiences to question mainstream historical accounts, established fields of knowledge, and the ways we think about the world including Australia’s colonial past and post-colonial present.”
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
