artists & participants
The exhibition presents the work of young- and mid-generation artists from Australia and New Zealand who have already gained some international recognition. It is the first so comprehensive a presentation of art from the region in Poland and Lithuania. The exhibition and the accompanying catalogue aim at reflecting the changes occurring in the culture of the two countries in the recent years, determined by social and political shifts (including the issue of multiculturality), the development of new technologies, and a growing opening up to the international art market. The exhibition features renowned artists such as Tracey Moffatt, Patricia Piccinini, Destiny Deacon, or Bill Culbert, as well as younger-generation artists whose work has already been recognised. High Tide brings painting, sculpture, sculptural and video installations, and photography.
The works arrange themselves into three thematic groups: in the circle of popular culture, suburbian stories (including the issue of peripherality), and visions of the future.

Hsu (more information about project»), Brook Andrew, Guy Benfield, Mladen Bizumic, Lisa Crowley, Bill Culbert, Desitiny Deacon and Virginia Fraser, Daniel Malone, Mikala Dwyer, Ex de Medici, Shaun Gladwell, Matt Griffin, Peggy Napangardi Jones, The Kingpins, Maddie Leach, MINIT (Jasmine Guffond and Torben Tilly), Tracey Moffatt, TV Moore, Callum Morton, Ani O’Neill, Michael Parekowhai, Ptricia Piccinini, Rachel Rakena, Scott Redford, Ann Shelton, Jim Speers, Kathy Temin, Louise Weaver, Boyd Webb, Ronnie van Hout, Yvonne Todd, Francis Upritchard, Suzann Victor.
