Hopper Gallery
18 October 2021 - 23 January 2022

features artists that push the boundaries of the canvas. It features a mix of emerging, mid-career and established artists who work with painting and experiment with the medium through approaches to collaboration, material, process and installation.

The artists explore very different themes and ideas through their artworks, but each has a unique story that starts with the mark-making of paint. Through this exhibition, audiences will see the diversity of the form of expanded painting today, and many of its possibilities.

Artists: Nell, Carmen Glynn-Braun, Jody Graham, Rochelle Haley, Kirtika Kain, Hayley Megan French, Claudia Nicholson, Judy Watson, Ms N Yunupingu
