Contemporary Art from Australia
New York’s Garis & Hahn’s show, with some of the most exciting artists from Australia’s Contemporary Art scene, is closing June 15th.
According to curator Marissa Bateman, Peripheral Visions refers to Australia’s peripheral positioning within the international art market. With London’s Saatchi Gallery and the Royal Academy both staging surveys of Australian Art in the next 18 months, the partly Australian-run New York gallery is joining this international engagement with some exceptional artistic talent emerging from Australia. In fact, three of the artists from the show (Vernon Ah Kee, Claire Healy, and Sean Cordeiro) have exhibited at the world’s most prestigious Contemporary Art event, Venice Biennale.
