Steal @ Linton & Kay Galleries
Linton & Kay Galleries (Perth City) – Perth, WA
May 28 – 22 June 2016.
Curated by Anna Sabadini. Steal is a group show that celebrates the ideas of other painters, even, yes, pinching them. This is a time-honoured tradition – it links with the past and other artists, acknowledging them as sources of regeneration and growth for contemporary work. The ten Perth painters in this exhibition range from established to emerging: George Haynes, Ben Joel, Bec Juniper, Lesley Munro, Tori Benz, Melanie Dare, Ian Williams, Jarrad Martyn and Kim Kim Kim. Anna Sabadini, the curator, as well as a participating artist, has invited them to nick ideas (formal or conceptual) from others in order to develop, challenge, or renew their own practices.
