“Beneath the Surface, Behind the Scenes” presents a selection of significant works by contemporary Latin American and Australian artists

(Melbourne, AUS)

The Heide Museum of Modern Art presents, until October 22, Beneath the Surface, Behind the Scenes, a group show that brings into dialogue a selection of significant works by contemporary Latin American and Australian artists. It explores the ways that art can take our imaginations beyond the limitations of the known world and the veil of visual appearances.

The exhibition considers art as a generative force and as a complex form of language, investigation and theatre. Ideas unfold simultaneously in real and imagined space and time unearthing and giving rise to deeper forms of knowledge and prompting alternative insights and perceptions. Artists in the exhibition embrace instability, forms of erasure and new realms of possibility, critically engaging with unacknowledged or difficult histories, as well as impacts on our changing society and natural environments.

Participating artists include: Alexander Apóstol (Venezuela), Tatiana Blass (Brazil), Lauren Brincat (Australia), Christian Capurro (Australia), Elena Damiani (Peru), Marlon de Azambuja (Brazil), Matías Duville (Argentina), Gloria Sebastián Fierro (Colombia), Ximena Garrido-Lecca (Peru), Arturo Hernández Alcázar (Mexico) Nadia Hernández (Venezuela/Australia), André Komatsu (Brazil), Liliana Porter (Argentina), Marilá Dardot, (Brazil), Nicholas Mangan (Australia), Jorge Magyaroff (Colombia), Hayley Millar Baker, Gunditjmara/Djabwurrung (Australia) Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza (Ecuador/France), Berna Reale (Brazil) and Steven Rendall (Australia).
