David Lynch: Between Two Worlds
Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), Brisbane
until 7 June 2015
The first exhibition in Australia to explore the 50 year career of the acclaimed American artist and filmmaker David Lynch, closes at Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art on 7 June. Between Two Worlds was the largest survey to date of works by the Los Angeles-based artist who visited Australia for the first time in conjunction with the opening weekend.
Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) Director Chris Saines said it was a major coup for Brisbane to host the artist during his first ever visit to Australia. “Between Two Worlds’ explores David Lynch’s entire practice as an artist and filmmaker, spanning painting, photography, printmaking, industrial design, music and the moving image. Featuring over 200 works across all media, the exhibition is sure to surprise Australian audiences not yet familiar with Lynch’s broader artist practice and is an exciting opportunity to see works never before shown in Australia,’ said Mr Saines.
A full-colour 176 page exhibition catalogue accompanies the exhibition and features over 200 images illustrating Lynch’s wide-ranging oeuvre, new portraits by Los Angeles-based photographer Just Loomis, and an interview with the artist.For more information visit – qagoma.qld.gov.au
