Bunjil Place Gallery
Patrick Northeast Drive, Narre Warren
Curated by Rodney James
What is influencing art today? Like, right now. What is it saying about what is happening in your own backyard, your own city or the world? What makes us who we are and how are today’s artists reflecting on life as we know it? Now, this might all sound a bit existential, but it’s not all serious.
Curated by independent curator, Rodney James, Let’s Play: The art of our time, is an exhibition featuring a range of works that convey how toys, role-play, technology and the imagination have become a central component of the art of our time. Bringing together contemporary works from public and private collections across Australia, Let’s Play will encompass painting, sculpture and photography through to multi-media and digital based installations.
Featuring Brook Andrew, Terry Batt, Polly Borland (UK/USA), Tina Douglas, Emily Floyd, Shaun Gladwell (AUS/UK), Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, Chayni Henry, Troy Innocent, Jess Johnson (NZ/USA), Jeff Koons (USA), Maria Kontis, Fiona McMonagle, Jan Nelson, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Robert Pulie, Nick Selenitsch, Tim Silver, Fleur Summers and Miwa Yanagi (Japan).
