In an Australian first, artist Anna Park debuts her first museum exhibition outside of the Unites States, exclusively at AGWA.

Rising contemporary artist Anna Park makes her Australian debut at The Art Gallery of Western Australia this month, with 15 never-before-seen works, created specifically for AGWA with her new exhibition, Look, look. Anna Park.

The South Korean-born artist works with charcoal and ink to create black and white drawings which aim to capture the spirit of contemporary life. The exhibition features Park’s exploration of female identity through the lens of film and television. More broadly, the works on display are a reflection on Park’s earliest experiences of Western culture, being shaped by current and past American screen stories and advertisements. The exhibition also dives into our daily lives, encapsulating the information we consume daily and internet culture.

Now living and working in Brooklyn, Park has never exhibited her work outside of the United States – and her AGWA exhibition brings with it a series of events and talks.

Look, look. Anna Park kicks off on Friday April 19 with an opening-night party, a free event to celebrate the start of the exhibition. The next day, AGWA will host an artist talk at 3pm. Exhibition curator Rachel Cieśla will be joined by Park, to discuss her artistic practice and her new body of work. Later that evening, AGWA plays host to a world-first art and fashion collaboration between Park and designer Wah-Wah Australia. The launch will kick off at 6.30pm and is hosted by Vogue Australia’s editorial director Edwina McCann. Bookings are essential and tickets are $50 per person.

Round off your weekend the next day with an up-close and person talk with Wah-Wah Australia designer Kaylene Miller. Miller will be in the Design Store from 2 to 3pm to discuss the collaboration and her career evolution.

The exhibition runs until Sunday September 8. Entry is free. See more information.
