SAMUEL FOSSO 'UNFINISHED CONVERSATIONS: NEW WORK FROM THE COLLECTION' MOMA GROUP EXHIBITION REVIEWED IN THE NY TIMES

'MoMa has a history of excluding not only black artists but also women. (...) “Unfinished Conversations” is neither a corrective nor a direct response to this history and reputation, but the exhibition makes strides. It includes a great deal of work by artists of varying racial, ethnic, and class backgrounds, and avoids trumpeting the familiar self-congratulatory liberal politics—a tuneless, corporatized gospel of diversity. Instead, the curators have managed to emphasize the work itself over the identities of the artists and, crucially, without using this approach as a justification for excluding work by women and artists of color.'

SALLY SMART AT THE ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

In her major new work created for the Art Gallery of South Australia, Smart uses collage, metal, cloth, paint and embroidery to collide influences and ideas including Ballets Russes and WayangKulit, Indonesian shadow puppetry.

POPUP STUDIO - SALLY SMART
until 22 September
To coincide with this new work, Sally Smart's Studio ‘pops-up’ right inside the Gallery’s front door. After viewing Smart's work and other works in the permanent collection, students use collage techniques to create their own dream-like backdrops and whimsical characters from found images and recycled materials. Back at school, class groups collaborate to create a theatrical diorama from their creations, inspiring puppet-play and storytelling opportunities.
