Exhibition Opening: Penny Siopis

Exhibition Opening: Penny Siopis

Don’t miss the chance to see acclaimed SA artist Penny Siopis open her latest solo show Warm Water Imaginaries at Stevenson this month. The works in this exhibition were made in response to an invitation to participate in 'Rising Waters: The Indian Ocean in the Twenty-first Century', a group exhibition at the McMullen Museum, Boston, in 2020. The show proposes to look at climate change and the migration of people, objects and ideas across the Indian Ocean. 'With Warm Water Imaginaries', Siopis responds to this vast history and complex geological and social present through the creation of imaginary worlds in small and large paintings, as well as object-assemblages and a new film in progress. While alluding to narratives and images that speak to climate change, the works’ open form, associative materiality and vibrant process invite the spectator to project their own imaginings.
