To July 27 Danie Mellor: Exotic Lies Sacred Ties – a UQ Art Museum Travelling exhibition, this major survey focuses on the past decade of Danie Mellor’s practice, and is the first exhibition to consider in depth the artist’s contribution to contemporary Australian art. Mellor’s Indigenous heritage informs his art and he maintains strong links with his mother’s Country on the Atherton Tablelands, Far North Queensland. His twenty-first century works unravel connections between his familial cultures and the secrets inherent in Australian history. In this exhibition Mellor’s narrative unfolds through a number of recurring themes which compel us to consider Australia’s colonial legacy and encourage engagement with the nation’s shared and contested histories . To Aug 10 Selected works from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection – features works from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection by Richard Bell, Gordon Bennett, Rosalie Gascoigne, Tim Johnson, Imants Tillers and John Young.
