That Seventies Feeling…the Late Modern

Exhibition and Shows

7 Dec 2019 to 9 Mar 2020

Showcasing some of the Gallery’s best works from the decade that saw the opening of Art Gallery of Western Australia’s much longed-for new Gallery.

Rather than echoing the various high key transformations going on in the pop world at large, these works deal with how space is dealt with in relation to the body, how artists work with the flip between memory and immediate experience and how politics and performance are traversed.

This show demonstrates a hidden richness and complexity to how they think of the seventies, while also reflecting the building’s own place in the story of modernism, as a regional example of a late Brutalism that itself foregrounds materiality and the experience of place, light and landscape.

Full of surprises and rarely seen works, The exhibition examines a transformative decade for Western Australia, the Gallery and the world at large.

Featuring artists Miriam Stannage, Virginia Cuppaidge, Mike Parr and Brian Blanchflower, hip new visions by Robert Rooney, Stephen Shore and Jenny Watson and late work by modernists Howard Hodgkin, Fred Williams and Albert Tucker you’ll be transported back to the decade that shaped modern Australia.
