Anthropocene Noir

Erin Linhart, Lola Page, Emily Parsons-Lord, Dexter Rosengrave, Elissa Wilson.

CURATED BY EVA NILSSEN FOR THE 2019 CAT CURATORIAL MENTORSHIP.

Finding a point of engagement with the Anthropocene, curator Eva Nilssen has invited five artists to respond to that theme in relation to noir fiction. As these artists bravely explore their own complicity in destruction it is hoped that the nature of our relationships with each other, as humans and non-humans sharing a potentially dark and perhaps thrilling new era, can be brought into focus.

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 3 May 2019 // EXHIBITION: 4 May - 26 May 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT

Confessions

Tony Albert

Girramay/Kuka Yalanji artist Tony Albert will present solo exhibition Confessions for Dark Mofo 2019. The exhibition includes an installation of past iconic works alongside new commissions and his first performance work, a confession-style booth where Albert will have a one-on-one, non-verbal exchange with visitors to the gallery. The unique experience between artist and visitor will result in an artwork made in collaboration. The exhibition explores the artist’s experience of growing up within the Catholic Church and living with the contemporary legacies of colonialism.

OPENING: 6pm, Thursday 6 June 2019 // EXHIBITION: 7 June - 14 July 2019 // CONFESSIONS: 2-4pm, 7 June - 14 June // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT
