Other side art: Trevor Nickolls, a survey of paintings and drawings 1972 – 2007

22 October – 17 December 2010

Trevor Nickolls is a senior Indigenous artist and seminal figure in Australian contemporary art. Born in 1949 and currently living in Adelaide, Nickolls has exhibited nationally and internationally for over thirty years, and represented Australia with Rover Thomas at the Venice Biennale in 1990.

Curated by Michael O’Ferrall, Other side art: Trevor Nickolls is the first major museum survey of this influential artist's politically charged practice. Nickolls’s drawings and paintings reflect his personal experience as a Nunga man from remote South Australia, and his relationship to land, place and history.
