Dale Harding: White Collared
08 August 2015
The IMA is pleased to present the inaugural Green Room exhibition by Brisbane-based artist Dale Harding, White Collared. The exhibition opens on Saturday, 8 August. From 5 to 6pm, there will be a preview for IMA members. From 6 to 8pm, everyone is welcome.
Harding was born in 1982 in Moranbah, a descendent of the Bidjara, Ghungalu and Garingbal peoples of Central Queensland. He has gained recognition for works that explore the untold histories of his communities. Recently Harding has been investigating the social and political realities experienced by members of his family who lived under government control in Queensland.
Harding’s first solo exhibition, Colour by Number, was curated by Tony Albert at Brisbane’s Metro Arts (2012). He has participated in a number of group exhibitions, including string theory: Focus on Contemporary Australian Art, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney; My Country, I Still Call Australia Home: Contemporary Art From Black Australia, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (both 2013); Outlaws, Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, St Kilda (2014). Harding’s work can currently also be seen in GOMA Q: Contemporary Queensland Art at the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art.
