Two Must-See Exhibitions

Great news – BIFF 2020 will be accompanied by two must-see exhibitions!

Featuring works by Pop Art icon Andy Warhol, video montage by Tracey Moffatt and self-portraiture by Cindy Sherman, ‘Cut It: Collage to Meme’ uses the lenses of news reporting and entertainment media to explore collage, montage and sampling as enduring methods in art. ‘Cut It’ contemplates our voracious consumption of images and shifting relationship to contemporary iconography.

‘Welcome to Colour Television’ celebrates a powerful selection of Indigenous Australian video art featuring works by acclaimed artists Richard Bell, Destiny Deacon, Vernon Ah Kee, Christian Thompson, Genevieve Grieves and Douglas Watkin. The artists use the power of the screen to communicate across cultures and disrupt the dominant narratives surrounding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
