NO.1 NEIGH­BOUR: ART IN PA­PUA NEW GUINEA 1966-2016

Where Brisbane - - What’s On -

“No.1 Neigh­bour: Art in Pa­pua New Guinea 1966-2016” pre­sents work by artists from Pa­pua New Guinea cre­ated from the mid-1960s, through In­de­pen­dence in 1975, un­til to­day. The ex­hi­bi­tion fo­cuses on the vi­brancy of con­tem­po­rary artis­tic ex­pres­sion, a di­rec­tion that is unique in Aus­tralia. A key con­cep­tual thread within “No.1 Neigh­bour” is the im­por­tance of the on­go­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween Aus­tralia and Pa­pua New Guinea with projects pro­fil­ing on­go­ing cre­ative re­la­tion­ships be­tween com­mu­ni­ties and in­di­vid­u­als.
