Tony Albert: WONDERLAND

May 3 - May 18

Tony AlbertGlaring, 2019. Acrylic on board20.5cm diameter. Courtesy: the artist and Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney.

 

Tony Albert’s Wonderland throws into question the history and framework of colonial notions of exoticism and Otherness denoted by the word ‘wonder’. Despite its titular reference to land and landscape, the exhibition achieves this not with depictions of country, but with re-appropriated misrepresentations of First Nations people. Gathering source imagery from the likes of satirical cartoons and Sunday newspaper comics, Wonderland identifies and exposes the derisive stereotyping of Aboriginal people across popular visual culture.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 3 May 2019
