Fiona McMonagle  2021 Shadow Boxer

It has produced many books, songs, paintings and films.

What is it about the fight that speaks to artists through the ages and why do some contemporary artists respond so vividly to its grit, history and contest?

Shadow Boxer will highlight this cultural fascination and showcase the work of contemporary Australian artists who explore ideas of race, gender and class and the sheer physicality of Boxing in their work.

Featuring work by Karla Dickens, Blak Douglas, Richard Lewer, Michael Willson, Nigel Milsom, Keri Glastonbury, Fiona McMonagle, Bianca ‘Bam Bam’ Elmir, David Matthews.

This exhibition was supported by The Dobell Exhibition Grant funded by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation and managed by Museums & Galleries of NSW
