Danie Mellor: Exotic Lies Sacred Ties
University of Queensland Art Museum, 2014 - Art, Aboriginal Australian - 144 pages
This major survey will focus on the past decade of the artist’s practice. Mellor’s Indigenous heritage informs his art, which considers Australia’s colonial legacy. Born at Mackay, Queensland, in 1971 he maintains strong links with his mother’s Country on the Atherton Tablelands, Far North Queensland. The exhibition is the first to consider in depth how Mellor has contributed to contemporary Australian art, and will encourage engagement with the nation’s shared and contested histories through core themes. It will bring together key works from public collections, including Australian Museum, National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of South Australia, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Bathurst Regional Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, The University of Queensland and private collections.
