COGNITIVE DISSIDENTS: REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL

20 February – 11 April 2020

Cognitive Dissidents: Reasons to be Cheerful explores the development of video in Australia since the early 1970s, and how the medium’s self-reflexive nature became an invaluable tool for artists seeking new ways of thinking about society, knowledge, and living.

Curated by Stephen Jones, the exhibition highlights works that range from the purely aesthetic to sharp critiques on contemporary politics.
