      Matisse alive

      Playful, potent and political responses to the art of Matisse from four of ’s most exciting women artists

      Offering new perspectives on the ideas and innovations of the great twentieth-century painter, Matisse alive comprises four separate but connected solo exhibitions of the work of contemporary artists Nina Chanel Abney (USA), Sally Smart (Australia), Angela Tiatia (Samoa/New Zealand/Australia) and Robin White (New Zealand). Each artist responds in dynamic and varying ways to the art of Henri Matisse, revealing its vitality and reconsidering Matisse’s key concerns, among them his portrayal of odalisques, his use of textiles, and his response to Oceania.

      Young African-American artist Nina Chanel Abney presents an edgy and topical mural and painting project; significant Australian artist Sally Smart creates a large-scale cut-out assemblage installation in her investigation into female subjectivity; Samoan-born, Sydney-based artist Angela Tiatia produces an immersive video in response to Matisse’s Oceania works through her research in Tahiti; and New Zealand’s revered senior artist Robin White presents new collaborative works in masi, or tapa, expanding on her deep knowledge of and respect for Matisse’s practice.
