For more than two decades, Brook Andrew has challenged us to think about our place this country. An uncompromising artist whose work crosses mediums from painting to photography to video, the Sydney-born Andrew has long focused on colonialism, race and life in contemporary Australia. Now, more than 100 of his works will be on display in Brook Andrew: The Right to Offend is Sacred at the NGV's Ian Potter Centre.
Open from March 3 until June 4, the free exhibition will feature iconic pieces from throughout the artist's career, including his signature neon light works and Wiradjuri word plays that explore the relationship between Indigenous communities and consumer culture, along with a number of new and never-before-seen works, including two new large-scale sculptures.
