Andy Quilty and an unnamed artist: Untitled

‘Untitled’ explores punishment and rehabilitation in correctional institutions, looking into the physical and psychological impact that architectural design and micro-social environments have on the wellbeing of confined individuals.

This exhibition of drawing, painting and installation by ‘outsider’, Andy Quilty, and ‘insider’, an unnamed prisoner in a West Australian gaol, investigates the cultural and political implications of society’s attitudes towards those serving time and seeks to broaden these views and judgements, juxtaposed by the artist’s own perspectives of freedom and incarceration.
