Arlo Mountford: Deep Revolt

Arlo Mountford’s practice brings large scale interactive installations paired with sound, video and animation to the gallery.

When: Thu, 18 Apr – Mon, 10 Jun 2019
Where: Shepparton Art Museum, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton

Arlo's work assaults our individual and collective memories of all things art history through the lens of the contemporary. Amusing, strange and laden with references, his films engage the darker side of our political and social histories through the construct of the art institution and the seminal works held within.

This survey exhibition brings together several video works stitching together a lesson in time, place, and art history and shows a gradual distillation and culmination of his ideas to date.

For the SAM iteration of this touring exhibition, two extra works will be included: The Folly and Clock.

Arlo's works are filled with historical references and are enjoyable for all ages. You can view a sample below:

See our Programs and Events page for the variety of workshops that have been inspired by Arlo's works.
