David Lynch Is Coming To Australia

In news qualifying as “damn fine” for the brains trust behind the best contemporary art gallery on the mainland, Twin Peaks enthusiasts and the Queensland economy alike, sexagenarian film auteur, multidisciplinary visual artist and distinguished grey hairspo, David Lynch, will be making his way to Australia next year.

Running from March 14th next year, Brisbane’s GOMA (Gallery Of Modern Art) will present an exhaustive exhibition of the work of the award winning film auteur, dubbed ‘David Lynch: Between Two Worlds’.  
In addition to rarely seen paintings and drawings from the mid 60s, the exhibition will include lithographs, Lynch’s photographs of factories and nudes, recent large-scale paintings, and a complete retrospective of his film, video and television work including a specially-curated program of his short and feature films, works for television, documentaries and independent projects produced for online platforms. Details of exclusive events, including an artist in-conversation, public programs and special musical performances, as well as celebrations of the quarter century anniversary of Twin Peaks will be announced shortly. 
“‘David Lynch: Between Two Worlds‘ explores three ideas that connect the artist’s practice across art, cinema and music — ‘Man and machine’, ‘The extra-ordinary’, and ‘Psychic aches’ — ideas that open us up to the possibility of finding a deeper reality in our experience of the everyday,” The exhibition’s curator, José Da Silva, Senior Curator, Australian Cinémathèque, QAGOMA, said. “The exhibition draws on all areas of Lynch’s working career to present a thorough and compelling account of his singular vision.”  
Best of all? The artist will be present.
