Daniel Crooks: In Conversation


‘Daniel Crooks: Motion Studies’ acknowledges Crooks’s significant contribution to new media art in Australia and traces the emergence of his recent transition into sculptural forms from his early works in video art and photography through to the present day. Crooks is one of the leading contemporary artists working in moving image, his ‘time slice’ project elevates moments of urban restlessness to an eddying dream-like choreography at odds with fast-paced modern life on which they draw.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Amanda Slack Smith, Associate Curator, QAGOMA, speaks to Daniel Crooks.

‘Motion Studies’ is at the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) until 25 October.
