Description

The Long Kiss Goodbye explores how artists transform familiar materials and symbols into complex meditations on love, loss, attraction and repulsion: the ashes of visual diaries become ceremonial jewellery, fragments and studio scraps become an epic patchwork of memories, and simple actions become poignant rituals.

This evocative exhibition features a group of artists from around the nation, each with a unique connection to Western Australia.

Curated by Gemma Weston, Perth Festival Visual Arts Program Associate. Presented in association with Perth Festival.

Exhibition rus 8 February - 9 May 2020.

Artists include: Sarah Contos (NSW), Penny Coss (WA), Iain Dean (WA), Brent Harris (VIC), Clare Peake (NT), Michele Elliot with Tender Funerals (NSW)
