New exhibition Dada Lives! launching soon!

Dada Lives Lips Detail Image

3 March to 4 April

Dada Lives! is curated by Banyule-based curator Joe Pascoe and features 10 contemporary Australian artists. The exhibition reflects on the influence of Dada, a movement which began in Europe as a reaction to World War 1 and the nationalism and rationalism which many thought had led to war. It rejected traditional aesthetics in favour of irony, humour and destabilising the norm.

The exhibition which Joe describes as reflecting on the past to scare you into the present, honours 100 years since the inception of Dada.

Exhibiting artists include Anonymous, Stephen Benwell, Mark Cain, Anika Cook, Nicholas Jones, William Kelly, Anastasia Klose, Kir Larwill, Elizabeth Liddle, John O’Neil and Stefan Szonyi.
