No Confidence

No Confidence is an exhibition about our political situation. Artists in this show express an unease with the state of our liberal democratic society. They consider its various inadequacies, failures and challenges, and together, create an image of a dystopian political present.

No Confidence presents the work of six international artists exploring politics today: Institute for New Feeling (USA), Felix Kalmenson (Russia-Canada), Jennifer Moon (USA), Yuri Pattison (Ireland), Julika Rudelius (Germany), and Stefanos Tsivopoulos (Greece).

Part of the 2016 Perth International Arts Festival, and presented at Success. Curated by Guy Louden and Dale Buckley.

‘A big theme interpreted with wit and imagination by a group of artists whose very presence in this show tells us that Perth is not isolated at all, but switched on to a global art network.’
