KINGS ARI (VIC) presents
A message in the collar ~ Jeremy Eaton, Katie Ryan, Erin Crouch, Nina Gilbert, Julia McInerney, Stephen Palmer, Ashley Perry & Zainab Hikmet

‘A message in the collar’ brings together a selection of artists whose practices engage with notions of disclosure from a critical, literary, historical and personal perspective. The artists employ strategies of confession, refrain, encryption and material syntax to shift the way we engage with language, images and signifiers. The artists wrangle with contemporary means of communication, that appears at once transparent and highly circulated as well as obfuscated and opaque. These works are further informed by an inclination to circumvent current forms of artistic consumption and dissemination, gradually revealing meaning through prolonged engagement.

Opening Friday 15 November, 5–7pm 
Open daily 16–23 November, 12–3pm
Town Hall Underground, 50 Macquarie Street, Elizabeth Street Entrance, Hobart
