Dissenting Voices

20 August 2016 - 8 January 2017

Dissenting Voices is an exhibition concerned with how artists respond to social issues, cultural concerns and political events. Their art also provides poignant commentary on the human condition.

Selected from historical, Indigenous and contemporary artworks in the State Art Collection, the works in the show explore themes of socio-political engagement, personal and national identity politics and resistance to acts of authoritarian control and aggression.

Many of the works, including installation, photography, sculpture, video and painting, are being shown for the first time together, along side a few new acquisitions, such as those by Raquel Ormella and Marco Fusinato.

These artists’ works will offer insights to viewers about the nature of political art, its varied purpose and potential meaning, from dissent and disturbance to contestation and condemnation.
