Exhibition Curator Peter McKay interviews Madonna Staunton

Madonna Staunton’s first major exhibition at QAGOMA since 1994, and her first major exhibition since 2003 demonstrates Staunton’s remarkable capacity to change and adapt, reintroduce and renew. Bringing many of the artist’s key achievements together.

One of Queensland’s greatest living artists, Madonna Staunton has made a major contribution to Australian modernism over the last five decades. Esteemed for her collage and assemblage work — which is often noted for its complex lineage of Dada, Constructivist, Fluxus and Abstract Expressionist precedents — Staunton has more recently committed her famed eloquence to figurative painting.

This exhibition ‘Madonna Staunton: Out of a Clear Blue Sky’ must close on Sunday 1 March, if you can’t make it in, the beautifully illustrated publication Out of a Clear Blue Sky — the most comprehensive representation of Madonna Staunton’s whole career is available in-store and online.
