PLAYBACK: Dobell Australian Drawing Biennial 2018

12 October – 8 December 2019

Continuing the legacy of the Dobell Prize for Drawing and supported by the Sir William Dobell Foundation, this exhibition presents new work by eight contemporary Australian artists who are exploring history through crossovers between drawn and the moving image.

In Playback works by Vernon Ah Kee, Sharon Goodwin, Laura Hindmarch, Locust Jones, Dorota Mytch, Jason Phu, Lucienne Rickard and Nick Strike respond to images found in art history, archives, newspapers, cinema and online.

“By reanimating images from the past, the artists selected for Playback enliven our sense of curiosity about history but also encourage us to understand the ways in which history repeats itself”, said Art Gallery of NSW curator Matt Cox.

‘PLAYBACK: Dobell Australian Drawing Biennial 2018’ is an Art Gallery of New South Wales Touring Exhibition.
