The Right to Offend is Sacred  National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne March 3 – June 4, 2017 Installation view. Photo: Dianna Snape.  In re-discovering and re-positioning a complex practice,  Brook Andrew: The Right to Offend is Sacred  includes many of Andrew’s most memorable works, contextualised in exciting new ways, juxtaposed with formative works that have had very limited exposure. As a map that scopes, records and pinpoints great moments in Andrew’s career, this solo exhibition will also include a new sculptural work, enabling viewers to intuit future directions in the artist’s ever changing practice. These sculptures, like much of Andrew’s work, will draw on the artist’s extensive personal archive and respond to important themes in his practice that issue from and resonate in books, objects, photographs and postcards, newspapers and the media. The exhibition also confirms the importance of the collaborative process in Andrew’s practice.
