Patricia Piccinini has represented Australia at the highest international level, and in 2016 was named the world's most popular artist. Her imaginative and startlingly life-like sculptures, installations, photographs, videos and drawings surprise and enchant audiences with their fantastic rendering of the near future - a world in which DNA editing is commonplace, machinery is sentient, and life both old and new is flourishing. Spanning GOMA's entire ground floor with retrospective works and substantial new commissions, Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection is the artist's largest and most ambitious exhibition project to date. This publication will provide readers with an opportunity to view the extraordinarily creative output of one of Australia's most successful contemporary artists in an informative and thought-provoking volume.
