Significant Tilt: Art and the Horizon of Meaning

Curated by Dr Rod Pattenden

Location: Macquarie University Gallery.

Dates: From 10 October to 28 November 2003

Interesting things happen around the edges, off stage and in the margins; confessional scribblings, larger shadows, the signs for map reading, all the hints of a wider horizon of meaning outside the frame. This exhibition draws on the strengths of the Macquarie University Collection in indigenous art and is supplemented by a range of contemporary artists exploring this range of interests. Themes will include the mapping of meaning, acts of erasure and mark making, the slippage of cultural edges, the re-mythologising of the landscape and apocalyptic visions of the future.

Artists: Peter Booth, Marion Borgelt, Leonard Brown, Andrew Browne, Gordon Bennett, Kate Briscoe, Richard Byrnes, Liz Coats, John Coburn, Charles Cooper, Nicole Ellis, George Gittoes, James Gleeson, Tim Johnson, Emily Kngwarreye, Lindy Lee, Hector Jandanay, Ginger Riley Munduwalawala, Noelene Lucas, Paul Miller, Trevor Niickolls, Lin Onus, Marita Sambono, Wendy Stavrianos, My Le Thi, Rosemary Valadon, Savanhdary Vongpoothorn, Kath Walker (Oodgeroo Noonuccal) and Susan White.
