More about the exhibition:

Dino Consalvo and Lottie Consalvo - From the Mudbrick House
A father/daughter exhibition curated by Gillean Shaw and Ahn Wells
20 March to 20 April 2019

This is the first time ‘the Consalvos’ have exhibited together and, as a consequence, they have spent significant time reviewing each other’s artworks. This process has elicited much debate and intense review to select works they feel have the most innate resonance to their relationship, and their own–and each other’s–practice. This process was undertaken over many months and the result is in part retrospective and in part a collaborative exhibition. It has been a journey for both and has forged a special bond as artist to artist, rather than the familial relationship of father and daughter. While both artists are on independent trajectories within their careers, this exhibition comments on family dynamics, the family home, and shared time and space, and how these elements have influenced each artists’ approach to making. - Ahn Wells, Curator
