Artist Talk: Fresh Hell
Hear from Brisbane-based artist Ryan Presley in conversation with ACE Artistic Director Patrice Sharkey about his major solo exhibition, Fresh Hell.
Adelaide Contemporary Experimental
3 September 2022
1:00pm to 2:00pm
Presley’s practice wrestles with themes of power and dominion—in particular, how religion and economic control served colonialism and empire building over time, and the representation of its customs and edifices in our everyday lives.
Having found institutional success with his Blood Money watercolour series (which re-imagines Australia's currency as a celebration of Aboriginal history), Fresh Hell represents a new phase of practice and scale for the artist.
Hear Presley speak about the ideas and themes prevalent in this major solo exhibition in this one-off Artist Talk.
