Step right up: the circus in Australian Art An Albury Art Gallery Touring exhibition
The fascinating and lively Step right up: the circus in Australian art offers both an appealing and challenging exhibition about all things ‘circus’ related, from a fine arts perspective. Newly commissioned works together with an historical survey explore the many mythologies of the circus – as a refuge from real life, as an imaginary world of exaggerated good and evil, and of physical achievement and mystery.
In partnership with the internationally renowned Flying Fruit Fly Circus, the exhibition is touring from the Albury Regional Art Gallery and presents a range of ways that the circus has been represented by Australian artists over time. The display aims to offer intellectual access for a broad range of audiences from children to adults and from circus lovers to art lovers.
Artists include Tom Alberts, Graeme Drendel, James Guppy, Petrina Hicks, Warren Langley, Nerrisa Lea, Stewart MacFarlane, Alexander Seaton, Arthur Wicks, Anne Zahalka and more…
