‘HUNTER RED: Corpus’ will be opening at Newcastle Art Gallery, featuring Dani Marti’s large-scale installation ‘Looking for Felix’ (2000). This group show explores the human body represented in different and arresting ways; as controlled, out of control, stolen, the abject or other. Marti’s installation pays homage to iconic Cuban-American artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres, filling the space with curtains of hanging red beads that speak to materiality, desire and living with HIV.
Marti will exhibit alongside notable international and Australian artists including Francisco de Goya, Bill Henson, Julie Rrap and Emily Kame Kngwarreye. The overarching theme of red is loaded with tactile metaphors and will connect a suite of exhibitions across four Hunter-based institutions. The exhibition will be open until 22 July 2018.
