Deep Revolt: Arlo Mountford
Exhibitions on tour
Saturday 27 July 2019
6:00PM - 6:00PM
Deep Revolt is a mid career survey of Mountford's work curated by Director, Gina Mobayed. Mountford is a prolific artist whose large scale video installations, sculpture and animations take a wry look at the artistic canon through the lens of the contemporary. This exhibition brings together animated films, kinetic sculpture and drawings that take us on a jaunt through iconic museums, masterpieces and movements across centuries and showcase Mountford's mastery of animation over time. Laden with references from art history and pop culture, Mountford plays with our ideas of the linear and familiar - his works are a fascinating, funny and unforgiving experience.
Deep Revolt will tour nationally through Museums & Galleries of NSW visiting six metropolitan and regional centres in Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, New South Wales and Queensland from 2019 to 2020. The accompanying catalogue includes an essay by Oliver Watts, writer, artist and honorary associate of Sydney College of the Arts.
