Event Description

Full Description:
Please join Max Delany and Julie Ewington in a conversation about the work and practice of artist Pat Brassington. Curated by Juliana Engberg, the exhibition 'Pat Brassington: À Rebours' is a major survey of one of Australia’s most important and influential photo-based artists.

The first extensive gathering of Pat Brassington’s 30 years of practice, the exhibition explores her ongoing aesthetic language derived from surrealism and cinema reinterpreted through photography. Brassington was one of the first artists to recognise the potential of the digital format, and has used it to create an enormous body of work – images that are hauntingly beautiful, deeply psychological, and sometimes disturbing.

The exhibition continues until 10 April. Find out more http://www.artmuseum.uq.edu.au
