Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 presents the full suite of eight montage films by artist Tracey Moffatt and her long-time collaborator Gary Hillberg. Exhibited all together for the first time, these works span 16 years of their collaborative practice, from the first montage work created in 1999 to the latest in 2015.
Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 is an ode to cinema and to the cinematic form, offering unprecedented insight into the stereotypes that populate our collective cultural imagination. Mining an extensive collection of iconic Hollywood films, telemovies and arthouse cinema, Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015 invents new fictions and plays with narrative and character conventions to create highly charged compositions on polemic themes such as love, art, revolution and destruction.
Tracey Moffatt is regarded internationally as one of the most important Australian artists of our time, and in 2017 was the first Australian Indigenous artist to present a solo exhibition at the Venice Biennale. Gary Hillberg has been working as an experimental filmmaker and music video producer since the late 1980s.
Join us for a Twilight Screening on Thursday 16 August @ 5.30pm. This is a free event and all are welcome | RSVP to the Gallery
