Misanthropology: The World Art of Adam Rish
Misanthropology: The World Art of Adam Rish is a survey exhibition featuring four decades of work by Sydney-based artist Adam Rish, who is interested in cross-cultural collaboration as “world art” (like “world music”) to affirm indigenous culture and regional diversity.
He has worked with indigenous artists in Australia, Indonesia, Tonga, Turkey and the USA. Adam views his role as an artist as a “re-presenter”, combining traditional techniques with modern technological and domestic images, a practice he calls “misanthropology”.
More information is available on Adam Rish’s website.
