Other side art is the first museum survey of the work of South Australian Indigenous artist, Trevor Nickolls. Known as ‘the father of urban aboriginal art’, Nickolls has developed his own iconic language that has influenced and informed subsequent generations of urban Indigenous artists.
This exhibition has for the first time brought together over fifty paintings from public and private collections across Australia. The exhibition curator Michael o ‘Ferrall has worked with Trevor Nickolls for over three decades, and was the curator of the official Australian Pavilion at the 1990 Venice Biennale, which presented Nickolls’ work alongside Kimberley artist Rover Thomas.
