Simryn Gill: Sweet Chariot

16th September - 12th November

Griffith Uni Art Gallery

Griffith University Art Gallery will present the work of internationally acclaimed artist Simryn Gill in her first solo exhibition in an Australian public institution in five years.

Featuring recent photographic works, as well as a new suite of relief prints made especially for this exhibition, Simryn Gill: Sweet Chariot explores notions of place, people and migratory movement. Highlights include large silver gelatin photographs taken aboard a small fishing boat on the Straits of Malacca, a major shipping route for trade, pirates, cruise ships and for peoples seeking asylum.

From her hometown in Port Dickson, Malaysia, Gill has created evocative works that propose overlapping perspectives and question contexts and metaphors of power, continuing her trajectory as an artist who for the last three decades has profoundly contributed to the landscape of contemporary art both in Australia and overseas.

 

Exhibition Opening: 16th September, 6:00 – 8:00pm

Artist Talk: 11am, Saturday 17 September 2016
