Tony Matelli, an exhibiting artist in Onsite Gallery's exhibition, The Sunshine Eaters, will speak about his art practice.

Tony Matelli's sculptures exhibit a sophisticated technical execution and aim to create psychological spaces that draw our attention to the sentient where wonder, sadness, empathy and hope develop. He has had solo exhibitions at Leo Koenig (NY), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Uppsala Konstmuseum (Sweden) and a mid-career survey at the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum (Denmark). Matelli is represented by Marlborough Contemporary (NY).

 

The Sunshine Eaters is an original multi-sensory exhibition that highlights how artists and designers look to the land and its plants, flowers and trees as a means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of local and global crises.

Featuring work by: Shary Boyle, Nick Cave, Robert Holmes, Jim Holyoak, Brian Jungen, Jessica Karuhanga, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Nina Leo and Moez Surani, Tony Matelli, Alanis Obomsawin, Ebony G. Patterson and Winnie Truong. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith.

Exhibition runs January 10 to April 15, 2018.
