May Day: The Return of Art & Politics in the 21st Century
6 May 2006 - 3 June 2006
The Cross Art Projects, 8 Llankelly Place, Kings Cross, Sydney, 2011, Australia
The exhibition reflects on these sorry days of government manipulation of unions and the introduction of divisive industrial laws, on the curbing of civil liberties and the strangling of access to information. It also identifies a strong neo-conceptual critical and aesthetic strain within contemporary Australian art practice that interacts with global concerns and local political topics.
