David Sequeira is a visual artist, curator and museum education professional based in Melbourne who explores language through colour and gesture. A self confessed hoarder, David collects books, vases, flower petals, leaves, domestic ware and plastic plates, which both “furnish recollection … [and] form records: analogues to living memory, storing information beyond individual experience.” (M. Kwint 1999, Introduction: The Physical Past).
The DOMINIK MERSCH GALLERY CURATOR AWARD invites guest curators to explore their own perceptions and expertise in a one-off exhibition opportunity at DMG. The award aims to give curators a platform to realise an exhibition in a commercial gallery setting, opening up a conversation between artist represented by DMG and those they select independently. DMG urges guest curators to explore the gallery’s existing idiosyncratic themes while encouraging them to express their unique narrative and conceptual style.
