Produced in association with QAGOMA’s presentation of the first exhibition of Sherman’s large-scale photographs made since 2000 to be seen in Australia, this richly illustrated publication explores the artist’s articulate, incisive and influential practice. Over 50 of Sherman’s works are illustrated — including the artist’s never-before-seen new works from 2016 — in a publication that showcases colour, texture and character. 

Win the 114 page full-colour exhibition catalogue valued at $39.95.

APT8

The Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art is the Gallery’s flagship exhibition focused on the work of Asia, the Pacific and Australia. Our eighth edition emphasised the role of performance in art, with live actions, video, kinetic art, figurative painting and sculpture exploring the use of the human form to express cultural, social and political ideas, and the central role of artists in articulating experiences specific to their localities.

APT8 included more than 80 artists and groups, a program of artist performances and projects, an extensive cinema program, and activities for kids and families.

CINDY SHERMAN

Cindy Sherman is renowned for her mastery of masquerade — her own image is at the centre of an inspiring array of character studies created over decades. Sherman expands on contemporary society’s fascination with aspiration, narcissism and the cult of celebrity.

In May Brisbane was treated to Sherman’s large-scale photographs made since 2000, with the exhibition profiling the artist’s return as the central model in her artworks, for which she is also costume designer, make-up artist and photographer. The exhibition travelled to the City Gallery Wellington in New Zealand and is on show until 19 March 2017.
