Spanning 20 years of practice by internationally acclaimed, New Zealand-born artist Francis Upritchard, this major survey reverberates with possible histories, both ancient and imagined. Upritchard interweaves references to archaeology and anthropology, to modernism and hippiedom, to nostalgia and futurism, in an unforgettable exhibition that is startlingly strange.
Featuring important loans from public and private collections in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and New Zealand, Francis Upritchard: Jealous Saboteurs is an exhibition partnership between City Gallery Wellington and Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne and supported by City Gallery Wellington.
