In the 1960s, artists across a spectrum of international movements—including pop, kinetic, minimal, and conceptual art—began to use mirrors in their work. Mirror surfaces reflect the environment and the viewer, 'like a visual pun on representation', Ian Burn observed. Indexing the instability of perception, they invited viewers to participate in the purported endgame of late modernism. Our exhibition Mirror Mirror presents classic mirror pieces from the 1960s and early 1970s by major international artists (including Art & Language, Robert Smithson, and Michaelangelo Pistoletto) alongside more recent mirror works by contemporary Australian artists.
