(re)visit: interpreting the collection

Jan - April, 2016

College Art Galleries

co-curators: Kent Archer, Leah Taylor

(re)visit: interpreting the collection creates new dialogues between works by examining their underpinnings within historical movements and contemporary concepts, addressing specific ideologies such as utopias, automatism, figuration, the “everyday” and suprematism. (re)visit privileges contextual inquiry and invites the viewer to reconsider the works within these ideological frameworks. The inclusion of documentary film, archival documents and a reading room, aims to evoke critical dialogue by highlighting cross-connections and counterpoints found in the collection.

This exhibition also serves as a marker to celebrate the 10 and 25 year anniversaries of the College Art Galleries and Kenderdine Art Gallery respectively. (re)visit: interpreting the collection is divided between both College Art Gallery spaces and the Kenderdine Art Gallery. We encourage audiences to explore the exhibition in its entirety.
