A group show focused on a dead luminary of the Australian art world, one we are still haunted by. In White As They Come we hone in on the very dead Brett Whiteley. He is the subject of enquiry and more generally, a plaything for a much needed piss take.
All the artists in the show are in some way iconoclastic in temperament. Here they are invited to take a stab at the overblown mythology of Brett. Fortunately they have a colossal saga from which to draw inspiration from. The show aims to revisit the romanticised grandeur of this white male artist, providing a contemporary spin on his relevance, and on the façade of immortality his legacy is centred on.
