Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process Australia Tour

Touring 2016 – 18

Derek Kreckler: Accident & Process is the first survey exhibition of one of Australia’s most rigorous conceptual artists. It brings together photography, video, installation, sound and performance works drawn from the artist’s early experimental practice of the 1970s through to his more recent focus on still and moving imagery in the 21st century.

The exhibition considers the relationship between culture and the environment, focusing on representations of landscape, national identity and the role of chance in determining these. Accident & Process addresses notions that are of enduring importance to the artist, central to the evolution of Australia’s cultural history and which demonstrate Kreckler’s desire to explore, extrapolate and test our understanding of our physical, cultural and social surrounds.
