“Returning to the Field #3 is a contemporary response to the iconic The Field exhibition of 1968. It traces the history and critical distance that new formalist abstraction in Australian art has undergone since 1968. It aims to position in this trajectory of ‘abstract’ art, a set of contemporary counterpoints that re-addresses historical aspects of the 1968 exhibition. As well as visual art it includes a program of corresponding art forms and disciplines in music, literature, performance and design as a device to help unpack the meaning of contemporary art in the broader sense of its practice and influences.
