That Seventies Feeling… the Late Modern

Revisit the transformative decade of the 70s in this celebration of culture from the Art Gallery of Western Australia; part of the Brutalist building’s 40th-anniversary suite of exhibitions and events reflecting its place in the story of modernism. The works in this exhibition consider ‘how space is dealt with in relation to the body, how artists work with the flip between memory and immediate experience and how politics and performance are traversed,’ says curator Robert Cook.
