Tense Past | Author: Julie Gough
Tense Past documents Gough?s major survey exhibition held at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart from ?. This epic exhibition, curated by Dr. Mary Knights, showcased 25 years of Julie?s art practice and reunited more than 30 artworks from collections across Australia. Resonant historic artworks and objects were also selected by Gough to collectively critique, alongside her works, the colonisation of Tasmania and the aftermath-impacts on First People and colonists.
This bespoke book is the result of 18 months of dedicated design and production effort. Tense Past is notably small, hard case quarter bound, its title block debossed in gold foil. This publication was also conceived as a work of art, an operational intervention into libraries. Designed to sit amidst and disrupt undisputed mainstream histories, it will hide in plain sight. Together with over 120 images, historic maps and archival facsimiles, TENSE PAST features an introduction by Dave Mangenner Gough and eight compelling and insightful essays by leading writers, scholars, activists and artists.
