Picture This Exhibition

Yhonnie Scarce is a part of Picture This, an exhibition opening Thursday 5 July at Counihan Gallery - Brunswick. This exhibition considers our enduring interest in both portraiture and the human form. While thematically diverse, each of the artists engage with the human body as a core subject, focusing on how physical gestures and actions can reflect social, political and aesthetic concerns. The selected works feature painting, video, sculpture and photography, and together reflect on indigeneity, the past and the experience of the everyday. The exhibition includes Vera Cooper, Archie Moore, Ben McKeown, Christopher Pease, Ryan Presley, Yhonnie Scarce, Christian Thompson, Naretha Williams, Raymond Zada. Presented in association with NAIDOC week, 1-8 July. Open until 5 August - More info here.
