An Optimistic mid-career retrospective – Mathew Jackson

Tuesday, 03 April 2012


An Optimistic mid-career retrospective spans two decades of Matthew Jackson’s Western Australian arts career, presenting many previously un-exhibited works from private collections along with large multi-panel paintings from the last decade.

His paintings are a visual reflection on a number of issues – from bigotry to sexism, gender policing to body politics. Matt has lived with HIV/AIDS for the past 20-years. Throughout his career he has used art as a way to speak out in world, which still considers the disease to be taboo.

For Matt, the exhibition is a chance to reflect on his choices, share his story with others and thank those who have made a difference along the way.

The exhibition opens on Friday, 13 April and runs until Friday, 27 April from 10am to 6pm Tuesday to Friday, with a special weekend opening on Saturday and Sunday 21 – 22 April from 12.00pm to 5.00pm. Entrance to the exhibition is free.
