15 July – 26 August @ Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre.
“Montages: The Full Cut 1999–2015” presents the full suite of eight montage films by artist Tracey Moffatt and collaborator Gary Hillberg. Presented together for the first time, the exhibition spans 16 years of the artist and editor’s collaborative practice and includes their most recent work, The Art (2015).
The exhibition is an ode to cinema and to the cinematic form, offering unprecedented insight into the stereotypes that populate our collective cultural imagination. In this suite of montages, Moffatt and Hillberg source footage from Hollywood films, tapping into the humour and pathos of universally shared subjects like art, revolution, love and destruction.
Moffatt’s recent appointment as Australia’s representative artist at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017 is testament to the timeliness in presenting this significant body of work.
This exhibition is touring Australia.
