David Keeling: Stranger
Hear the artist in conversation, and view his stunning exhibition.
You are invited to view TMAG’s new exhibition David Keeling: Stranger in the artist’s presence, and to hear David in conversation with TMAG curator Jane Stewart.
David Keeling (born Launceston, 1951) is a critically acclaimed Australian artist who has spent nearly 40 years painting Tasmania and its narratives, past and present. David Keeling: Stranger is a survey exhibition featuring more than 70 artworks dating from the 1980s.
A regular visitor to TMAG, Keeling has drawn from its iconic collection items such as colonial paintings by John Glover and William Buelow Gould, taxidermy animals, Governor Arthur’s Proclamation Board, and Fanny Cochrane Smith’s recorded song.
Distinctive Tasmanian scenes are also prevalent throughout his artwork, aligning the exhibition brilliantly with TMAG’s ambition to ‘tell Tasmanian stories’.
Members $20, non-members $30, including refreshments.
