The challenge is always to use materials in a new and different way, and make them convey meaning and portray form in a manner that has not previously been seen.
We Are Unveiled in Venice
“We Are”, the newest sculptural work by Andrew Rogers, has been unveiled in Venice, Italy as a collateral exhibition to the 2017 edition of La Biennale di Venezia – 57th International Art Exhibition.
“We Are” is comprised of eight large bronze and stainless steel sculptures.
The official unveiling by Dr Gerard Vaughan, Director, National Gallery of Australia at the early morning breakfast event on 11 May, and remarks from Mr Rupert Myer AO, Chair, Australia Council for the Arts, were received by an exceptional attendance of some 300+ guests including media, dignitaries and VIPS.
With the launch attracting absolute acclaim, the installation is on show to the general public, and continues to attract enthusiastic feedback.
Presented by the Global Art Affairs Foundation, the works will be exhibited through until November 26, 2017 at Palazzo Mora in Venice, Italy.
