Tom Nicholson: Public Meeting

Go behind the scenes with artist Tom Nicholson to hear more about his practice and major works in his new solo exhibition Public Meeting at ACCA from 6 April to 16 June 2019.

Reflecting the complex dynamic between historical traces and speculative futures in Tom Nicholson’s drawing, sculptural and social practice, Tom Nicholson: Public Meeting is the first large-scale exhibition to survey the scope of the artist’s practice and features new commissions alongside significant projects from the past two decades. Initially trained in drawing, a tradition that deeply informs his practice, Tom Nicholson (born 1973, Melbourne) is one of the most prominent Australian artists on the international stage. For Nicholson, the medium of drawing has become a way of connecting his work to wider cultural histories, focussing on the relationship between actions and their traces, and the imagination of new, as-yet-unrealised cultural forms.
