The first large-scale exhibition to survey Melbourne artist Tom Nicholson’s acclaimed drawing, sculptural and social art practice, Tom Nicholson: Public Meeting opens at ACCA on 6 April as part of ACCA’s annual Influential Australian Artist Series.


Tom Nicholson’s internationally regarded practice explores the relationship between history, collective actions and their traces. A common motif within his work is the notion of the public monument, it’s weight, authority and finality, and also its ability to be questioned, reconfigured and reimagined.

Nicholson works with historical materials and the visual languages of art and politics to create new narratives informed by listening, taking account and giving voice to others, with an insistence on acts of imagination, solidarity and justice.

Originally trained in drawing, a tradition that deeply informs his practice, Tom Nicholson is one of the most prominent Australian artists on the international stage, and has been included in major international exhibitions including Gwangju Biennale, 2018; Biennale of Sydney, 2006 and 2018; The National, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, 2017; Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, Cambridge, UK, 2016; Jakarta Biennale, Jakarta, 2015; the Qalandiya International, West Bank and Gaza, 2012, 2014 and 2016; Shanghai Biennale 2012; among others.
