Tom Nicholson: Public Meeting

Exhibition and Shows

6 Apr 2019 to 16 Jun 2019

Initially trained in drawing, a tradition that deeply informs his practice, Australian artist Tom Nicholson is one of the most prominent Australian artists on the international stage.

Public Meeting is the first large-scale exhibition to survey the scope of Nicholson’s practice, and will feature key major projects from 1999 to the present, alongside new commissions.

Nicholson’s practice explores the relationship between history, memory and the role of monuments and collective actions to reimagine possible futures. A common motif within his work is the notion of the public monument, its weight, authority and finality, and also its ability to be questioned, reconfigured and reimagined. Nicholson works with historical materials and the visual languages of art and politics to create new narratives informed by listening, taking account and giving voice to others, with an insistence on acts of imagination, solidarity and justice.
