Michael Cook

6 Jul - 23 Sep 2018

Continental Drift: Black / blak art from South Africa and north Australia is the first major exhibition from a Gallery program that celebrates and examines global black art and culture. Continental Drift highlights the shared experiences of contemporary black / blak artists from South Africa and north Australia. While both countries have different histories, British colonisation had dramatic effects on their black peoples, many of which continue to be experienced today. Australian artists represented in the exhibition are Michael Cook, Fiona Foley, Tony Albert, Dale Harding, Hannah Bronte, Gordon Hookey, Paul Bong and Archie Moore; South African artists represented in the exhibition are Mohau Modisakeng, Berni Searle, Mary Sibande, Zanele Muholi, Buhlebezwe Siwani, Kudzanai Chiurai and Athi-Patra Ruga.
