No False Idols

When

Tuesdays to Sundays, 11am to 5pm Saturday 13 August to Sunday 2 October

Cost

Free

NO FALSE IDOLS is a group exhibition that interrogates the social structures surrounding worship, idolatry, and devotion–through the practices of Otis Hope Carey, Lu Yang, Jazz Money, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Nabilah Nordin, Kusum Normoyle, and Kawita Vatanajyankur.

The monuments and statues that surround us are often erected to inspire feelings of reverence and piety. Frequently built in service of nationhood, people and achievements, NO FALSE IDOLS seeks to challenge symbols of the past by engaging in contemporary conversations that up-end accepted narratives and beliefs. Across multiple mediums, the artistic acts of ritual offered in this exhibition consider acts of faith and worship in contemporary life. Acts such as the performance of building monuments, embodied rituals of social criticism, constant self-affirmation, and the praise of inter and intrapersonal relationships. NO FALSE IDOLS confronts blind faith through exploring idolatry, devotion and the social structures that inform our individual and collective sense of being.

Tuesday - Sunday: 11am - 5pm Thursdays: 11am - 8pm Exhibition Day Celebration: 12 August, 3-6pm
