Ivan Durrant: Barrier Draw



ISBN: 9781925432756 Category:

David Hurlston, Rodney James, Barry Dickins


Ivan Durrant is one of Australian art’s great provocateurs. He first achieved widespread public attention in the 1970s with a series of controversial, politically inspired happenings, but in the ensuing decades his practice developed to be wide-ranging and dynamic, encompassing sculpture, filmmaking, performance art and photorealist painting.

Including images of more than 100 works, alongside essays by NGV Senior Curator, Australian Art, David Hurlston; author and playwright Barry Dickins; and independent curator and writer Rodney James, Ivan Durrant: Barrier Draw charts the artist’s development from his earliest paintings and politically inspired performance art of the 1970s, through to his realist paintings and sculptures from the 1980s and onwards.

Published in association with the exhibition Ivan Durrant: Barrier Draw held at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Federation Square, 1 May – 25 October 2020.
