Scott Redford is a leading Australian artist who has firmly placed his home town, Queensland's Gold Coast, on the contemporary art map. His intelligent and passionate investigation of vernacular visual culture has enlivened Australian art. This major solo exhibition showcases his development of the fictitious character Reinhardt Dammn in dialogue with key works from the last decade.
'Scott Redford: Introducing Reinhardt Dammn' will include surfboard sculptures, videos and paintings, suites of fibreglass objects and canvases with shiny, highly coloured acrylic surfaces. At the same time, the 10-metre signage sculpture The High / Perpetual Xmas, No Abstractions 2008 outside the Gallery of Modern Art provides a link between GoMA and the Queensland Art Gallery building, where the exhibition will be displayed.
3.00pm Saturday 19 February 2011 | Julie Ewington, Head of Australian Art and Francis Parker, Curator, Contemporary Australian Art.
3.00pm Sunday 13 March 2011 | Francis Parker, Curator, Contemporary Australian Art will provide an insight into the exhibition.
