Mike Parr: Foreign Looking

Mike Parr. One of Australia’s most provocative artists.

Parr’s seminal performance art is internationally recognised and often motivated by psychoanalytic, philosophical, linguistic and political interests.
This is the first exhibition to bring together works in all media across Parr’s voraciously experimental practice from 1970 to the present. Spanning nine galleries this installation of performance, film, sculpture and photography provokes a challenging yet mesmerising experience.
