Gorge on a visual feast of the sickeningly sweet.
This exhibition features a fascinating pick ‘n mix of artworks by contemporary international and Aotearoa-based artists who play with an aesthetic of sugary to explore dark and unsettling things that lurk beneath the candy-coated surface.
Artists include Rachel Maclean (Scotland), Jon Noorlander (Sweden), Alison Nguyen (USA), Patrick Smith (Puerto Rico), Laura Duffy (NZ), Wayne Youle (Ngapuhi, Ngati Whakaeke, Ngati Pakeha), Elisa Barczak (Germany/NZ) and Emily Crooks (NZ).
Candy-Coated is part of The Dowse Art Museum’s 50th Anniversary programme. It continues our commitment to highlighting international contemporary artists to our local audience.
