Fresh Cut returns to IMA with new local talent
Exhibiting the latest pick of new Queensland artistic talent, Fresh Cut 2012 opens at the Institute of Modern Art in Fortitude Valley this weekend.
From Saturday, see works by emerging artists Sean Barrett, Antoinette J. Citizen, Yavuz Erkan and David Nixon, with the opening festivities commencing with talks by the artists. An annual showcase since 1997, the eagerly awaited Fresh Cut exhibition has become a rite of passage for Brisbane artists – a platform for furthering artistic dreams and a glimpse into future movements and disciplines of art.
Also opening this weekend at the IMA is Douglas Gordon’s Left Is Right and Right Is Wrong and Left Is Wrong and Right Is Right, a 1999 creation that appropriates Whirpool, a 1949 Otto Preminger classic noir tale. Known for creating new representations of appropriated films so as to comment on their content and materiality, Scottish artist Douglas Gordon amplifies and interrogates films through juxtaposition and negative printing.
