Vivienne Shark LeWitt: comedies & proverbs
2 May 2008 - 19 July 2008
The Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne, Vic.

This exhibition is the first survey of the work of Vivienne Shark LeWitt at an Australian art museum. Shark LeWitt is a mid-career artist who maintains a unique presence in Australian art. She makes intimately scaled paintings and works on paper in a deceptively winsome style, where the size and delicacy of the work belies its emotional and poetic impact. Shark leWitt presents vignettes of emotional vulnerability, many of which speak of the subtle gender politics and power plays of everyday life.
