Allegory of the Cave Painting
GROUP EXHIBITION

Opening Friday 19 September 2014, 19:00
20.09 — 07.12.2014
at Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp

This group exhibition takes the prehistoric Bradshaw paintings from Western Australia as mental model. Recent research has established that these paintings are alive, colonized by red bacteria and black fungi, ‘living pigments’ that maintain the chromatic vividness of the figures: the Bradshaw paintings are as much a product of prehistory as they are made now. The exhibition, at Extra City and at Middelheim Museum, assembles modern and contemporary artworks in response to these paintings’ materiality, meaning and time.
