MONOCHROMES
Edited by David Pestorius

7 December 2000—24 February 2001
University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane

Monochromes was the first major survey in Australia of artists working with a single colour. It presented artworks produced over the previous 35 years by more than 45 Australian and foreign artists who have exhibited work of this nature in Australia. The approach adopted involved selecting one work by each artist and grouping them by colour. And rather than including only artists who might be considered ‘hard-core’ exponents of the painted monochrome, a more expanded view of monochromatic practice was embraced, one that acknowledged critical shifts in contemporary practice since the 1960s, with numerous conceptual and post-conceptual works presented.

A substantial catalogue, with an introduction by David Pestorius, commissioned essays by Andrew McNamara (QUT) and Morgan Thomas (UQ), and comprehensive installation view photo-documentation, was produced in the immediate aftermath of the exhibition.

artists: Ian Anüll (Zurich) Peter Bonde (Copenhagen) Peter Booth (Melbourne) Ian Burn (Melbourne) A.D.S. Donaldson (Sydney) Mikala Dwyer (Sydney) Andreas Exner (Frankfurt) Dale Frank (Brisbane) Marco Fusinato (Melbourne) Gail Hastings (Sydney) Leni Hoffmann (Düsseldorf) Robert Hunter (Melbourne) Robert Jacks (Melbourne) Gerold Miller (Berlin) Ian Milliss (Sydney) Elizabeth Newman (Melbourne) John Nixon (Sydney) Rose Nolan (Melbourne) Robert Owen (Melbourne) Wendy Paramour (Sydney Ti Parks (Melbourne) Mel Ramsden (Oxfordshire) Robert Rooney (Melbourne) Chris Wilder (Los Angeles) Heimo Zobernig (Vienna), and others.

Gail Hastings

“A magnificent catalogue to compliment this important Australian abstract artist who has received much attention throughout Europe. This beautifully designed publication shows how Hastings examines the theories of historical Minimal Art in her own artistic work.”

Australian abstract artist Gail Hastings makes sculptuations (sculptural situations) — invisible space made visible through a conjunction of geometry, colour, objects and concrete texts.

“This catalogue has been published on the occasion of exhibitions of work by Gail Hastings at Bahnwarterhaus /­ Galerie der Stadt Esslingen, 6 December 1998 – 17 January 1999; Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Canberra 14 August – 12 September 1999; University Art Museum, University of Queensland, Brisbane 10 September -10 October 1999” – p. [2]

Includes bibliographical references (p. 90-92)
