Bringing together a group exhibition of 20 young to mid-career artists from Australia, The Fine Art Society Contemporary examines the current masterpieces coming out of the country from 13 November until 21 December. Chosen by Guest Curator Geoffrey Cassidy, the works do not necessarily reflect the stereotypical landscape art to come out of Australia previously. The pieces in Australia: Contemporary Voices offer an alternative narrative, highlighting the complexities of the urban society.
The aim of the exhibition is to show the quality, originality and diversity of art currently being produced in Australia. Taking into consideration the influence of the international community, the works still carry their own voice. Presenting a variety of media, audiences can expect to see sculpture, painting, tapestry, works on paper and new technologies.
The artists involved include, Giles Alexander, Del Kathryn Barton, Kim Buck, Penny Byrne, Julia DeVille, Adrienne Doig, Nicholas Folland, Newell Harry, Claire Healy & Sean Cordeiro, Linde Ivimy, Alan Jones, Maria Kontis, Janet Laurence, Sam Leach, Joan Ross, Caroline Rothwell, Alexander Seton, Simon Terril and Michael Zavros.
Australia: Contemporary Voices, 13 November – 21 December, The Fine Art Society Contemporary, 148 New Bond Street, London, W1S 2JT.
