Brook Andrew—rethinking Antipodes

25 May @ 10:00 am - 2 September @ 5:00 pm

| Free

In 2016 Brook Andrew undertook a comprehensive study of the collections of the Cambridge Museums, and the extensive print collection of the British Museum, London, as part of the Australian Print Workshop’s Antipodes project.

In the resulting suite of eight photolithographs—acquired by Geelong Gallery in 2017—he uses reproductions of 18th century satirical prints by British artist James Gillray as his primary source material: specifically a number of prints in which Gillray addressed British Imperialism, the political climate of the late 18th century and various conflicts (between Britain and France, and Britain and the colonised).

Brook Andrew is renowned for his work using archival material to expose and re-examine ways in which Indigenous peoples have been represented.
