Peter Tyndall: Dagger Definitions: Selected Works -1952-1987

7 Aug–13 Sep 1987

ACCA, Dallas Brooks Drive, The Domain

Tending to 'frame’ ordinary experiences or subconscious associations to demonstrate the malleability of meaning,
Peter Tyndall’s oeuvre is characterized by the ideogram of a rectangle supported by two lines to represent either a framed projection-space suspended in a gallery or simply "something because…" along with the repeated use of the title
      A Person Looks at a Work of Art/
      someone looks at something…


This was the first survey exhibition of Tyndall’s work from the 1960s to the 1980s, and toured to Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane.
