Tim Johnson, ‘Approaching Mt Meru’, 2017, acrylic on linen, 183 x 152 cm
Tim Johnson has been announced as the next artist to be exhibited in the Museum of Contemporary Art’s Artist Room. You will get a chance to see a suite of his works from the MCA collection from FRIDAY 13 December 2019 until 27 July 2020. The Artist Room series was established in 2016 in the Level 2 Galleries to showcase a single significant MCA Collection artist’s work and to offer a deeper insight into their practice.
“Nobody escapes their age completely, but through the decades, Tim Johnson has been one of those artists who didn’t just know ‘where it was at’, he knew what it was. His imaginative, experimental and sometimes spiritual quest for human transformation through art has taken him from conceptual art and profane performance art in the late 1960s and early 1970s to DIY punk/new wave in the mid 1970s, and from Indigenous art at Papunya in the 1980s to the sacred practices of Buddhism of west and central Asia more recently.”
