Project Description

ROBERT ANDREW | TARRAWARRA BIENNALE | MELBOURNE

ROBERT ANDREW’s work ‘Information Transfer’ will feature in the 2016 Tarrawarra Biennial: Endless Circulation, from 19 August – 6 November.  The 2016 Biennial is a collaboration between TarraWarra Museum of Art and the Melbourne-based contemporary art journal, Discipline.

The exhibition brings together a range of works that explore continuity by bringing their past and future into the same frame, as well as projects that are predicated on their centrifugal circulation outside the parameters of traditional art spaces. Many works featured in the exhibition use these methods to unveil aspects of Australia’s colonial history and its persistence in the present; others reveal the social, economic and political histories of their own making, or attempt to anticipate their future trajectories—travelling through the marketplace, gradually adapting to new contexts, or degrading over time.

There will be a program of artist talks (free with Museum entry) on Saturday 20 August from 11am, and a series of lectures during the exhibition at various locations in Melbourne.
