New Histories

14 Apr 2018 - 29 Jul 2018

In  New Histories  ten contemporary artists reimagine historic works from the 19th and early 20th century Australian and European collection of Bendigo Art Gallery. Informed by technological, social, environmental, political and historical events that have occurred since the original work’s creation, artists in the exhibition revisit interpretations of Australian and European histories through the lens of contemporary culture.

Working across mediums of performance, sound, film, painting and textiles, historic and contemporary artworks will be reframed in a series of installations throughout the contemporary and heritage courts of the Gallery.  New Histories  challenges the nature of art as historic record and the role of the artist as documenter, and commentator of the world.

Artists
Denis Chapman; Gabrielle de Vietri; FAMILY FIRST! (Devon Ackermann & Paul Yore); Juan Ford; Andrew Goodman; Bridie Lunney; Pilar Mata DuPont; Phuong Ngo; Jacques Soddell; Christian Thompson.

Curator
Jessica Bridgfoot
