Deep Revolt: Arlo Mountford

28 September – 1 December

Deep Revolt is a mid-career survey exhibition of work by Melbourne based artist Arlo Mountford. Laden with references from art history and pop culture, Mountford’s large scale video installations, kinetic sculpture and animations take a wry look at the artistic canon through the lens of the contemporary.

Amusing and strange, his animated films are hand drawn with a mouse directly into a computer. He reimagines both real and created spaces from the art world, digitally reconstructing the interiors of iconic museums or retracing the brushstrokes of European masterpieces well known and loved for centuries. This process allows him to experience art with fresh eyes and unpack its ongoing meaning and relevance in contemporary society.

A Goulburn Regional Art Gallery exhibition toured by Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
