Anne Zahalka is one of Australia’s most highly regarded photo-media artists who has exhibited extensively in Australia and overseas for over 40 years. Her work explores cultural and environmental points of tension, interrogating them with humour and a critical perspective. Her practice is centred around deconstructing familiar scenes and re-presenting them to allow for alternative narratives that reflect, amongst other things, on cultural diversity within Australian society and the ecological impact of the global climate crisis.

ZAHALKAWORLD – an artist’s archive is a major survey exhibition centred around the artist’s archive and brings together key bodies of work that span Zahalka’s practice presented alongside collected treasures from her archive that inform and inspire her. Encompassing material that is both personal and professional, intellectual and physical, these archival components have been incorporated into a recreation of her house-studio within the gallery space. Imaginative, immersive and playful, the exhibition invites audiences into the artist’s working life and her creative process to explore the illusionary worlds for which she is renowned.

Accompanying the exhibition will be a major publication proudly supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.

Curator | Anouska Phizacklea, MAPh Director
