Artists and dates

Dale Collier is an anti-disciplinary artist whose practice involves ecologies of deep listening and time-based spatial interventions. His work fuses sculpture, sound, video, installation, painting and contemporary performance within a schismatic deep-fake-post-truth context in order to respond to the effects of global conditioning.

Dale’s generative approach and experimental methodologies are situated within live spaces of key cultural, geo-political and ecological concern. The grounded philosophies and the conceptual undercurrents embedded in his work are entangled with the paradoxical aesthetics of soft power and bio-security, which present enormous challenges to the ever-shifting constellation of social and biological energies surrounding the systems of contemporary art. Collier’s unique performance of cultural sovereignty and weaponised social critique belongs a new generation of a perpetually emergent and unapologetically political, queer Koori diaspora. Collier is a wild bastard child of the defunct colonial project. He was raised on Yuin Country and comes from mixed Wiradjuri(Wambool) and Northern European heritage. His work scans the qualia of urban, regional and remote psycho-geographies and individual instances of subjective, conscious experience from a pan and passing First Nations positionality.

Dale’s work has been exhibited within the Art Gallery Of South Australia’s Ramsay Art Prize (2019) and the Parliament of NSW King & Wood Malleson Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award (2018). Collier was also the recipient of the Windmill Trust Scholarship for regional NSW artists (2019, National Association for the Visual Arts) and The Brenda Clouten memorial travelling scholarship for young achievers in the visual arts (2016, Maitland Regional Art Gallery). His current projects are published with The Lock-up Artspace, Runway Experimental Art Journal, SEVENTH gallery, Rabbit Poetry Journal, Kings ARI, UNprojects, Cementa contemporary art festival and more.
