The Enlightment Never Happened

Kerry Cannon, Noah Grosz, Craig McDonald

1 August - 30 August 2009

A bronze sculpture show with some drawings and paintings. Through these works the artists explore the past, present and future of the scientific, materialistic and supposedly rational culture which arrived in this continent at the height of the Enlightenment period in the late eighteenth century. What is its legacy for the land and its people, indigenous and later arrivers? How far is Reason, and the world it produces, from the often dark world of dreams?
