Avoiding Myth And Message Catalogue
Avoiding Myth & Message is primarily an MCA collection based project featuring artists whose works have been informed by Australian literature. The exhibition looks at some of the major themes within both the literary and visual traditions and considers where the two streams of creativity overlap thematically: the landscape/interior, text and image, urban life, politics and the personal. The exhibition also includes ephemera, publications and media-based works produced by artists and publishers from 1968 onwards. MCA collection works will be augmented by selected loans from artists and local collections. Public programs are an integral part of the exhibition. The project comprises readings, performance and d.i.y publishing and production including a repeat of the successful MCA zine fair.
