An exclusive insight into the new works of George Gittoes, arguably one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists.
Driven by a desire for peace and social justice, George Gittoes will join us live and up late at THE NUCLEUS to unpack his current body of work Augustus Tower. This work boldly confronts global environmental concerns, economies, and the implications of both for the future of our planet.
Created during the period of a global pandemic the exhibition ‘Augustus Tower’ is about globalisation and the economic and environmental erosion of society and culture as we know it.
George will be accompanied in conversation and song by his long standing partner the internationally acclaimed vocalist Hellen Rose.
