Beyond Belief: the sublime in contemporary art

Ten contemporary artists use elements of hyperrealism, scale, illogic and biology to reinvent the concept of the sublime for modern audiences  – Daniel Askill, Daniel Crooks, Michael Gallop, Sam Jinks, Christopher Langton, Ron Mueck, Adam Norton, Baden Pailthorpe, Patricia Piccinini and Ricky Swallow.

Curated by BRAG’s Director, Richard Perram OAM, the exhibition promises to inspire, surprise and awe with a miniature monkey, an enormous inflatable sneaker, projected films of simulated seascapes, a meticulously hand carved wooden table and a three-dimensional trompe l’oeil painting of a WWII bunker entrance.
