Buxton Contemporary Collection artists Mikala Dwyer, Bill Henson and Paul Yore are currently included in Idle Worship at the Lismore Regional Gallery. Idle Worship is curated by Natalie Bull & Zoë Robinson-Kennedy and explores contemporary notions of reverence, worship and idolisation. The exhibition focuses on personal manifestations and our need to look beyond the celestial and seek comfort in everyday deities and new-age idols.
Idle Worship runs until 13 October at Lismore Regional Gallery, NSW.
