Jeffrey Smart 1921-2013: Recondita Armonia – Strange Harmonies of Contrast
Curated by David Malouf
The Irish poet WB Yeats called poetry 'memorable speech'. This very personal exhibition curated by David Malouf shows some of the ways in which Jeffrey Smart transforms the made objects of urban landscape roads, traffic signs, unit-blocks into visual poetry, into memorable images that reveal to us the strange harmony of contrasts, 'Recondita Armonia' of the world around us.
Exhibition runs from 2 November 2013 to 7 March 2014
