Discover a thought-provoking journey through contemporary Australian video art at MAP mima's "Single Channel" exhibition. This unique showcase, curated from the National Gallery of Australia's collection, invites visitors to delve into the diverse perspectives and creative expressions of renowned Australian artists.

Featuring a selection of video artworks spanning from 2000 to 2019, "Single Channel" offers an immersive exploration of identity, culture, and the human experience. Through the lens of video, artists like Tony Albert, Destiny Deacon in collaboration with Virginia Fraser, Silvana and Gabriella Mangano, Club Até, Shaun Gladwell, and Tracey Moffatt share their reflections on contemporary society and the complexities of being.

Tony Albert's pieces provoke contemplation on the visibility and resilience of Aboriginal people, challenging stereotypes and celebrating diverse identities. Destiny Deacon and Virginia Fraser's collaboration delves into the nuances of race and representation, prompting viewers to reconsider societal perceptions and biases.

The video performances by Silvana and Gabriella Mangano offer a mesmerizing fusion of movement, sound, and repetition, inviting audiences to engage with the sensory experience and explore themes of temporality and rhythm. Meanwhile, Club Até presents evocative narratives that challenge conventional notions of kinship and belonging, fostering a dialogue on inclusivity and social justice.

Shaun Gladwell's exploration of urban subculture and embodied experience provides a glimpse into alternative perspectives and lived realities, while Tracey Moffatt's reflections on childhood creativity and cultural heritage resonate with nostalgia and introspection.

Supported by the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program, "Single Channel" serves as a platform for artistic exchange and dialogue, encouraging viewers to engage critically with contemporary issues and themes. Whether exploring themes of identity, memory, or social change, each artwork presented in this exhibition invites visitors to reflect on their own experiences and perspectives.

Join us at MAP mima as we celebrate the diversity and richness of Australian video art, and embark on a journey of discovery, empathy, and connection.
