Skulls and Solicitors

 12 April – 6 May 2000.

Curator: Melissa Chiu
Artists: Michael Dagostino and David Griggs

Michael Dagostino and David Griggs’ exhibition Skulls and Solicitors is a collaboration which addresses the question of what happens when the “Australian dream” goes wrong? What becomes of the dreamer? What becomes of the dream? Dagostino and Griggs’ photographic and mixed media installation tells a story of abandonment, survival and economic struggle through images of empty buildings and empty billboards.

Michael Dagostino and David Griggs are both Sydney based artists who have participated in exhibitions at First Draft, 151 Regent Street and were both included in the 1997 Australian Perspecta at the Casula Power House.
