Superposition of three types

Superposition of three types brings together the practices of ten Australian artists across generations and mediums dealing broadly within the vernacular of colourist abstraction. Resisting an often-oversimplified appreciation of abstraction as purely aesthetic, Superposition of three types acknowledges its rich avant-garde origins. Over the last two centuries artists have turned to abstraction as experimentation and resistance, as both a spiritual practice and a political position offering an alternate perspective on the complexities of world affairs and rejecting the increasing grasp of commercial culture.

Curated by Alexie Glass-Kantor and Talia Linz.

Artists: Lara Merrett, Gemma Smith, Rebecca Baumann, Nike Savvas, Elizabeth Newman, Brendan Van Hek, Ry David Bradley, Spence Messih, Jonny Niesche, Huseyin Sami, Sydney Ball, Julian Day, and Shelley Lasica.
