For the last twenty years, video artist Shaun Gladwell has pioneered digital technology to engage and confront audiences with his reimagining of the moving image. First emerging as one to watch in the late 1990s, Gladwell rapidly became a standout among his generation of artists, garnering international attention at the level of Venice Biennale (2007) and Yokohama Triennale (2005) for his use of experimental technologies to explore relationships between the body to space, and of the self to architectural, environmental and social settings.
Between July and October 2019, Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) will exhibit the largest survey of Gladwell’s work to date.
