HOPE IN THE DARK
Artist | Grant Stevens
In response to a rapidly changing world - Gertrude presents Hope in the Dark, a street-facing exhibition in the windows at Gertrude Contemporary and the window vitrine at Gertrude Glasshouse. This project will evolve over the coming days and weeks (or as long as possible) while our regular programming is on hold.
Exploring ideas of confusion, resignation and anxiety offset with humour, hope and resilience, these gestures offer an opportunity for a bit of aesthetic and comic relief while we collectively #stayhome.
Follow this evolving exhibition on our social media channels:
In the window vitrine at Gertrude Glasshouse you will find Grant Stevens, Just Dawn, 2014, digital video, 3 min 15 sec.
Just Dawn was commissioned for the It’s Timely exhibition at the Blacktown Arts Centre in April 2014 (curated by Paul Howard and Gary Carsley), and is a response to two speeches that former Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam delivered in Blacktown in 1972 and 1974.
