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.
