Fiona Foley is a leading Australian artist as well as an influential curator, writer and academic. From Fraser Island in Queensland, her diverse practice spans two decades and encompasses painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, mixed media, public art and installation. With a history of exhibitions featuring uncompromising titles such as No shades of white and Lick my black art, Foley traces the ongoing significance of Australia s colonial histories. Individual works explore a broad range of themes, such as politics, language, female sexuality, race and the history of opium in Queensland. Forbidden is the first in-depth solo exhibition of Foley s work, featuring artwork spanning her 20 year career. It is being presented by the MCA in partnership with the University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane.
