EuroVisions: Contemporary Art from the Goldberg Collection
3 June — 5 August 2017
Presenting work by 38 international artists, EuroVisions encompasses a vibrant cross-section of leading tendencies in contemporary art. Conceptual approaches, innovative thinking and a sense of history inform these artists’ practices. The majority of works have been produced only in the last five years and are on view publicly for the first time in Australia.
The exhibition features high-profile artists such as Anish Kapoor, Urs Fischer, Antony Gormley, Isa Genzken, Katharina Grosse, Ugo Rondinone, Wolfgang Tillmans and Rachel Whiteread, who are among the most important and influential artists today. It also introduces a newer generation of artists who have studios in Europe, are represented by foremost international galleries and are considered ‘artists to watch’ for their inventiveness and fresh approaches.
Comprising a range of media and techniques, from painting, photography and ceramics to welded and bronze-cast sculpture, the works represent the diversity and exuberance of contemporary perspectives.
Selected by Judith Blackall from the collection of Lisa and Danny Goldberg OAM, EuroVisions offers Australian audiences a valuable opportunity to directly experience these rarely-seen works by significant international artists. The project continues in 2018 with exhibitions presented at Heide Museum of Modern Art, VIC; Canberra Museum and Gallery, ACT; and in 2019 at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, NSW.
