Arlo Mountford | Deep Revolt
This survey exhibition reveals the expanse of Mountford’s practice from video, sculpture and drawing. Featured in the exhibition is his recent work 100 years (2016), an animated chronology of 100 appropriated artworks charting the evolution of abstract art since the ‘zero point’ of Malevich’s Black Square in 1915, as well as a new suite of drawings exploring the viral phenomenon of ‘unboxing’. Mountford’s experiments with sculptural elements add yet another layer, with ramps and apparatus structuring the viewer’s experience and creating a physical manifestation of ideas touched upon in his practice and the exhibition, which promises to offer an amusing and thought provoking journey through the annals of art history.
A Goulburn Regional Art Gallery exhibition toured by Museums & Galleries of NSW. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
