Station is pleased to announce a major exhibition by TV Moore opening at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art on the 15th of August as part of their annual ‘Influential Australian Artist’ program. With Love & Squalor brings together recent and new works from the New York based artist, using animation and sound as a central theme.
The first major solo exhibition to be held in Melbourne, combining TV Moore’s video and sound works as well as hyper-electric digital paintings within a tactile environment, all characterised by the artists’ ongoing critical consideration of technology and media consumption across high and low culture.
Moore has maintained an unwavering commitment to creating a body of work that engages with the moving image in all it’s forms. Using video, animation, performance and sound as well as painting, photography, sculpture and installation, Moore creates psychedelic, decadent works that reach back to pop, abstract expressionism and surrealism. His works are characterized by an overriding sense of emotion, where energy and angst, perversion and pleasure, seduction and danger co-exist.
He has been recognized at the national and international level, with several major awards including the Anne Landa Award for Video and New Media Arts (Art Gallery NSW, 2009), the Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship (2003), and an Australia Council Fellowship (2013-14). Recent exhibitions include the 2014 mid-career survey exhibition, TV Moore’s Rum Jungle, held at Campbelltown Arts Centre, also coinciding with his participation in the 19th Biennale of Sydney.
Concurrent with this exhibition, Moore will also be exhibiting new works at Station Gallery, Melbourne from the 22nd of August until the 19th of September.
Opening night: 14 August 6 - 8pm.
15 August to 27 September, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA), 111 Sturt St, Southbank. accaonline.org.au
