John Nixon: Matter

29 May – 28 August 2005
BHP Community Trust Gallery

'John Nixon: labour as semaphore' was the launch of the Gallery’s Artist in focus exhibition series.  It was comprised of approximately 150 framed works on paper and one large commissioned artist construction. The selection of works, spanning the years 1980-2004, represented highlights from the artist’s significant donations to the Gallery over the past 5 years. Most importantly, however, 'John Nixon: labour as semaphore' explored the nuanced layers of Nixon’s process of artistic production and the incredible graphic richness of this (as yet) little known aspect of his output.
