Can't Look, Can't Look Away

Counihan Gallery in Brunswick, 7 - 30 October 2016

Artists: Fergus Binns, Monica's Gallery, Rebecca Agnew, Mark Shorter and Alexandra Nemaric.

By combining seductive and repellent imagery, the exhibiting artists create new forms of the grotesque as a reflection of Western society today. Seen through a social lens, the exhibition considers neo-liberalism, gender, sexuality and post-colonialism.
