Personal and Political at Tuggeranong Arts Centre offers two distinct bodies of work by two Canberra artists that explore personal narratives with a political edge.
Ambrus re-tells the childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz, to create an immersive installation that investigates this classic tale’s feminist, political, religious and economical interpretations within a contemporary backdrop. In her paintings Ambrus creates anamorphic illusions, which direct the viewer to a certain vantage point to view the intended image.
In contrast, Schneider is concerned about the state of our planet and the effects of climate change. Her large-scale paintings focus on the intransient nature of family and friendship in a rapidly changing and deteriorating world. They reflect on the artists past and her fears for the future.
Join us for the exhibition opening at 6pm on Thursday 6 June. Free, all welcome.
Exhibition continues until Saturday 29 June, 2019.
