Mof­fatt Kalei­do­scope

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Art - Tanya MacNaughton

HELP­ING artists re­alise their vi­sion is the rea­son PICA cu­ra­tor Leigh Robb was drawn to con­tem­po­rary art.

“Artists are so as­tute and of­ten ahead of the curve when it comes to com­ment­ing on our world,” Robb said. “In that sense it’s of­ten un­pre­dictable, never bor­ing and you al­ways have to be in­ven­tive as a cu­ra­tor.”

Robb’s lat­est project has been work­ing on Aus­tralian con­tem­po­rary artist Tracey Mof­fatt’s first ma­jor solo show in WA for more than a decade, Kalei­do­scope.

“Mof­fatt’s style is time­less and uni­ver­sal and this is only some­thing you can say of a few artists,” Robb said.

“Over the past 25 years she’s cre­ated bod­ies of photography and film that have in­flu­enced gen­er­a­tions of artists and the wider public.”

Kalei­do­scope is show­ing at PICA, Perth Cul­tural Cen­tre un­til Wed­nes­day, April 15.
