1969: THE BLACK BOX OF CONCEPTUAL ART

Black Box

Curated by Ann Stephen

This exhibition is a reconstruction of the first Conceptual art exhibition in Australia sent by Ian Burn, Roger Cutforth and Mel Ramsden in 1969 to Pinacotheca gallery, Melbourne. The reconstruction will be accompanied by video, journals, paintings and other works made at the time by the three young artists to reveal not only a broader context for their work but also how their concept art came out of working at the edge of late modernist painting.
