Willem de Rooij

Our 2017 program begins with a major exhibition by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij. For his first solo exhibition in Australia, de Rooij presents a number of works that reflect on the Dutch colonial project and its contemporary incarnations. In particular, a series of sublime textiles trace the global colonial legacy of the Dutch textile industry, including Indonesia, while a selection of monumental floral bouquets reveal the artist’s multilayered and complex approach to materials and concepts.
