Surrender & Catch: The Art of Brent Harris

Location

Art Gallery of South Australia

Date

23 Feb 24
Ongoing...

This exhibition explores the work of senior contemporary Australian artist Brent Harris. Moving between figuration and abstraction, Harris deploys both humour and the grotesque to examine psychological subject matter and visualise his complex and contradictory feelings. Indeed, the exhibition title refers to Harris’ interest in sociologist Kurt H. Wolff’s notion of ‘surrender and catch’ as a process for self-analysis and as a method of working.

Surrender & Catch showcases AGSA’s significant collection of Harris’ work. Augmented by loans from public and private collections, it charts a journey from The Stations (1989), Harris’ first major series exploring the death of his friends to AIDS, to his return to the subject in 2021. The exhibition emphasises the crosspollination of imagery and the development of forms in his printmaking, drawing and painting practice.
