“Art? Art! Art…” is an exhibition of beautiful and provocative works by some of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists: Abdul Abdullah, Pat Brassington, Matt Calvert, Michael Cook, Amanda Davies, Fiona Hall, Ben Quilty, Lucienne Rickard, Cyrus Tang, Nathan Taylor, Daniel von Sturmer and Megan Walch (Illustrated: Pink F___s Black Oil, 2016, glitter and enamel on composite board, private collection).

The artworks have been especially selected to fascinate both those viewers who are curious about contemporary art and those who may be rather sceptical or confused about its value. After all, what are we supposed to do, think and feel about contemporary art? The exhibition is an opportunity to check out the artworks, and also for viewers who want to have their say about the work, to do so in a safe and anonymous environment where all thoughts and responses are valid.

Community and school groups can make a special booking with the curator. Individual viewers are welcome any time. In addition, there is a program of artists’ talks and guided tours. The program is on the gallery website for details:www.clarenceartsandevents.net/
