Four Rooms

Curator Troy-Anthony Baylis

Like film, a work of visual art will often involve numerous creatives, sometimes explicitly acknowledged but generally not, who together contribute to the production of the work. Four Rooms takes its name from the 1995 anthology film where four narratives take place in four individual rooms, each story led by its own director, stitched together by a bellhop character.

Four Rooms is a multi-sensory exhibition comprising four individual ‘room environments’ produced by some of Australia’s leading Aboriginal artists. The artists have collaborated with other visual arts practitioners, filmmakers, designers and manufacturers. Each room features new work, drawing on video, objects, sound and lighting to articulate alter/native responses to themes of space, time, and authorship.

Room 1: Zane Saunders (QLD)
Room 2: Jenny Fraser (QLD) and James Luna (USA)
Room 3: Gordon Hookey (QLD)
Room 4: Tess Allas (NSW), Charlie Schneider (USA) and Vernon Ah-Kee (QLD)
