Today Art Museum is the venue for an interesting and controversial exhibition titled: postEDEN. Featuring four artists – Wayne Warren (UK), Jayne Dyer, Tony Scott, Lindy Lee (Australia) – aspects of contemporary society are addressed in various forms and images to reference issues and trends apparent in societies globally.
The artists reflect on various aspects of social mores, values and beliefs in contemporary cultures – from consumerism to health; from religion to national icons. The perceptions, practices and attitudes associated with these are the conceptual basis for the artworks bringing into question environmental issues, social values – the notion of civilization.
The exhibition is framed in a way that encourages the viewer to reflect on personal and group behaviour without moralizing – humour, irony and dispassionate objectivity – underlie the readings of the works and generate a global discourse.
