Tony Albert’s Visible at Queensland Art Gallery

At the age of 37 Visible is Tony Albert’s first major solo institutional exhibition and includes all aspects of his practice – from object-based assemblages, to painting, photography, video and installation – eliciting a powerful response to  popular culture misrepresentations of Australia’s First Peoples. 

The title of the exhibition is a reference to the statement, ‘Invisible is my favourite colour’; a phrase often used by Albert and around which the exhibition is structured. The exhibition problematises representations of Aboriginal people through wit and fervent protest, addressing issues of race and representation directly with large-scale appropriations and re-appropriations of kitsch ‘Aboriginalia’. 

Visible is presented alongside Albert’s We Can Be Heroes a parallel project at the Queensland Art Gallery’s Children’s Art Centre, which engages with children and families in exploring how, through overcoming our fears, we can all be empowered.

Open from 02 June 2018 – 7 October 2018
