Project one: Independent Vocabularies

26 February – 28 March 1992

John Barbour, Kate Brennan, Shaun Kirby and Bronwyn Platten

This exhibition presents four artists working in Adelaide whose otherwise dissimilar proposals are united by a common concern for the way in which visual arts works as language.

The work in this exhibition is undoubtedly intended as discourse, and courts interpretation. However, paradoxically, it is also wilfully opaque, resisting conclusions and even the very idea of meaning.

A University of South Australia Art Museum exhibition. Curated by Erica Green. Catalogue essays by John Barrett-Lennard, Anne Brennan, Julie Ewington and David O’Halloran.
