Three Ways: Contemporary Sculpture from the Collection

28 July – 30 September 2007 Gallery 4, QAG

The Gallery holds a number of fine works of sculpture and installation from various cultural traditions, including Indigenous Australian, European and North American, and from across the Asia–Pacific region. This Collection display brings together works from three of these diverse artistic origins: a group of exquisite feathered Morning Star Poles by various Indigenous artists from Elcho Island off the coast of the Northern Territory; two major installations by Indonesian artist Dadang Christanto; and a work by senior Australian artist Mike Parr. The juxtaposition of these works suggests something of the broad interests of contemporary sculptors.
