Event 'Double Displacement'

'Double Displacement'

Book Launch

27 April 2019
1.30–3.30pm

Join one of Australia’s most significant critics, Rex Butler in conversation with Sarah Follent, Executive Editor of Eyeline, for the Brisbane launch of Double Displacement: Rex Butler on Queensland Art 1992–2016.

Double Displacement provides a comprehensive survey of Butler’s texts on art from Queensland. Collecting pieces on major contemporary artists such as Gordon Bennett, Tracey Moffatt, and Richard Bell, as well as reflection on historical figures like Ian Fairweather, the volume also contains a series of extended reviews of key events such as the Asia Pacific Triennial in which Butler attempts to come to terms with what, if anything, defines contemporary art. Ranging from newspaper reviews to densely argued philosophical investigations, the texts collected in Double Displacement are essential reading for anyone interested in the last three decades of Australian art.
