Tom Nicholson: All that is solid...
Featuring new work from MADA Senior Lecturer Dr Tom Nicholson, All that is solid... is the third exhibition in the TarraWarra International series. Curated by Victoria Lynn.
All that is solid... is designed to showcase leading contemporary art practice in a global context. The Australian and international artists in this exhibition depict precarious histories, and their art offers imaginative responses. Many of them use the format of the archival fragment as a starting point for their work – a photograph or video from days gone by. Others depict the current social changes, turbulent conflicts, and altered political landscapes with a new imaginative filter.
For the exhibition, Tom has created a new wall drawing articulated across the six walls of the northern gallery of the TarraWarra Museum of Art, and a new edition of the artist’s book, designed by Brad Haylock, first shown at the AGNSW in Sydney and at Extra City in Antwerp in 2014.
The artists in this year’s TarraWarra International are Didem Erk (Turkey); Cao Fei (China); Tom Nicholson (Australia); Patrick Pound (Australia); and Cyrus Tang (Australia).
