Known as one of Australia's boldest contemporary artists, Destiny Deacon, will be celebrated in her largest retrospective to date opening at the National Gallery of Victoria on 24 July 2020.
The exhibition, DESTINY, will mark Deacon's first solo show in over 15 years, and include more than 100 multi-disciplinary works made over a 30-year period, and including the premiere of newly-commissioned works created with the artist and her long-term collaborator Virginia Fraser.
The exhibition will also feature several early video works created with the late Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi photographer Michael Riley and West Australian performance artist Erin Hefferon.
A descendant of the Kuku and Erub/Mer people from Far North Queensland and Torres Strait, Deacon is internationally known for a body of work depicting her darkly comic world view.
