Karla Dickens, Pound-for-Pound #3 (detail), 2019

Shadow Boxer

Overview

The boxing ring has long been a compelling site for artists. 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.
