The National 2019 New Australian Art
House of Discards
Until 23 June 2019
Commissioned by Carriageworks, Tony Albert's House of Discards is included in The National 2019 New Australian Art, curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham (Director, Programs, Carriageworks).
In 'House of Discards' the artist departs from his unmistakable representational style. Evolving his Aboriginalia project, which refers to his collection of racist kitsch souvenirs from the 1950s, Albert creates a giant house of cards that redacts the visual content in favour of succinct and elegant abstraction between black and white.
