Macquarie University Gallery
Ian Milliss is often categorised as an early conceptual artist, but this is a term he refutes. Always political and outspoken, by 1972 he stopped exhibiting as an artist to work in the Green Bans movement. In thethirty years since, he has defined a radically different model of the artist as activist.
In this exhibition the gallery space is activated through virtual audience participation and the internet, to provide a view of both Ian’s public and personal work that the art world has rarely seen, allowing the audience to further investigate and comment.
