Mesiti is one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists. The NGA has recently acquired its first major work by Mesiti, the three-channel installation The calling (2014). The calling considers the use of whistling languages in communities in Turkey, Greece and the Canary Islands. The NGA is presenting The calling alongside a selection of four other major works by Mesiti, including Citizen’s band (2012) and her award-winning work Rapture (silent anthem) (2009). This is the first time a selection of major works by Mesiti have been presented together, providing a perfect opportunity to experience the work of this internationally significant Australian artist.
