MINNA GILLIGAN: MYSTERY TO ME

An MPRG exhibition

21 July – 17 September 2017

Mystery to me is an exhibition of new works by Minna Gilligan. Presenting large-scale digital prints on fabric alongside small-scale collage works, Gilligan tackles notions of the female protagonist. With a focus on large painterly gestures which surround and engulf the women in her psychedelic worlds, Gilligan highlights the mysterious yet powerful nature of femininity within contemporary digital realms. While Gilligan employs a traditional retro aesthetic and colour palette, this trope allows her works to be accessibly viewed through the rose-tinted glasses of familiarity and nostalgia.

Gilligan has held solo exhibitions at Castlemaine Art Museum, Daine Singer, Melbourne Art Fair, Spring 1883, West Space and group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria, National Galley of Australia, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Alt Space (New York), Ontario College of Art and Design (Canada), PICA, Perth and Papermill ARI, Sydney.

Gilligan has also published three books, So Far (2016), Time After Time (Hardie Grant Australia/ Rizzoli New York) 2015, Poems, Prayers and Promises, commissioned for the 2015 National Gallery of Victoria Art Book Fair.
