Sixth Sense

Sixth Sense

19 August—15 October 2016

In art, sight is the sense most utilised. When other senses are evoked, the experience is invariably heightened. Guest-curated by Djon Mundine OAM, this exhibition presents work by contemporary artists who explore the perceptive experience, or realms of the spirit, through alternative forms and combinations of senses. Daniel Boyd, Destiny Deacon and Virginia Fraser, Karla Dickens, Fiona Foley, Nicole Foreshew, Willurai Kirkbright, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano, Archie Moore, Nasim Nasr and Skye Raabe investigate sensory experience, perception or intuition through their art work.
