GALLERY 1 :: Common Nonsense | Max Taylor | NRCG x SCU Graduate Award 2021 Recipient
On display at Northern Rivers Community Gallery from Wednesday, 29 June 2022 until Sunday, 21 August 2022.
Presented in partnership with Southern Cross University (SCU), this exhibition showcases the work of a recent graduate from the Bachelor of Art and Design (BAD) Undergraduate program. The award supports the promotion and development of outstanding emerging graduates from the BAD undergraduate program and presents exciting emerging art practices to local audiences.
References to gentrification, climate change, electoral politics, workplace practice, wealth inequality, and global free market hegemony are commonplace in Max’s work. Needing to adapt following the loss of much of his body of work to the Lismore floods, Common Nonsense sees Max employ digital ‘recoveries’ of destroyed works to navigate his practice.
The Northern Rivers Community Gallery is located at 44 Cherry Street Ballina and is open Wednesday to Friday from 10am until 4pm and weekends from 9.30am until 1:00pm.
