Mike Parr, That Seventies Feeling…the Late Modern, Art Gallery WA: 7 December 2019 – 9 March 2020

December 7, 2019

Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Mike Parr features in new exhibition, That Seventies Feeling…the Late Modern, at the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

This show demonstrates a hidden richness and complexity to how we think of the seventies, while also reflecting the building’s own place in the story of modernism, as a regional example of a late Brutalism that itself foregrounds materiality and the experience of place, light and landscape. Full of surprises and rarely seen works, That Seventies Feeling…the Late Modern examines a transformative decade for Western Australia, the Gallery and the world at large.
