Justin House Museum: Black and white and red all over

Britt Salt

28 Feb - 30 May 2018

Britt Salt’s work Klein Knot is featured in ‘Black and White and Red all Over’, an exhibition featuring monochromatic works in the Justin Art House Museum, Melbourne. The title of the exhibition is the old well known newspaper joke and the show aims to explore the role that black and white plays, not only in artistic expression, but also in our history and society. The presence of polarities in today’s discourse, it’s either black or white –  as reflected in left or right, rich and poor, secular and religious, and liberal and fundamentalist. Critical and popular is eliminating the grey, as well as the nuance and subtleties in between. This exhibition explores this phenomenon.
