To 'show character' or to be a 'person of character' is perhaps meaningless in a world where the thoughts and actions of any individual can be readily uploaded and disseminated at any given moment. One character becomes as ubiquitous as the next.
Guest Curator Jonah Dames has brought together a group of Australian artists at various points in their careers, whose works in the show try to describe the fleeting idea of character. The result is a diverse array of drawings, prints, sculptures, installation and video works that will be shown in PICA's Westend Gallery.
