Tony Albert’s artworks are complex interrogations into the human condition. Mining imagery and source material from across the globe, and drawing upon personal and collective histories, Albert questions how we understand and imagine difference. Weaving together text appropriated from popular music, film, fiction, and art history, along with clichéd images of extraterrestrials, photographs of his family in Lucha Libre, and an immense collection of “Aboriginalia” (a term the artist coined to describe objects that feature naive portrayals of Australian Aboriginal people and their culture), Albert presents a tapestry of ideas. He has exhibited his work at many international venues, including the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; the City Gallery Wellington, New Zealand; and the Gyeonggi Museum of Modern Art, South Korea. He was also included in the 10th Biennial of Havana, Cuba. He is well represented in exhibitions and collections of institutions within Australia, including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and the Gallery of Modern Art—Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane.
