What’s That Skip? at Kandos Projects
Thu 7 September at 8:00 am - Mon 2 October at 6:00 pmFree
From national emblem, a symbol of pride and economy to pop culture icon and totem animal of First Nations Australians, the kangaroo holds a special place in our cultural psyche. Satirical, absurdist, serious and thought provoking, “What’s That Skip?” is an exhibition that draws on the popular television series ‘Skippy the Bush Kangaroo’ and collectively celebrates this globally recognized fauna.
Artists include: Patti Abela / Brad Allen-Waters / Damien Castaldi & Solange Kershaw Peter Cooley / Adrienne Doig / Blak Douglas / Maddison Gibbs / June Golland Fiona Hall / Craig Handley / Gordon Hookey* / Michael Kempson / Fleur MacDonald Noel McKenna* / Ian Milliss / Roger Law* / Mai Nguyen-Long
Chris O’Doherty (Reg Mombassa) / Simon Reece / Reko Rennie* / Joan Ross Jason Wing / Adeel uz Zafar*. (*courtesy Cicada Press).
Curatorium: Lean Haynes & Miriam Williamson
