Loose Canon
Various Artists
Todd McMillan, Homage (study), 2012
Collection: Artbank
Loose Canon navigates the conventions of a ‘collection exhibition’ in relation to the way art historical ‘canons’ are formed. The idea of the ‘canon’ itself – referring to art reflecting the highest quality standard against which something can be judged within any given historical moment – has been applied loosely and according to the peculiarities of this collection. Representing a diverse range of contemporary practice, Loose Canon presents an alternative canon with the work of well-regarded artists alongside those who are often left out of the recent histories of Australian art.
