Cult of the difficult

Creators:Weinmayr, Eva

Lucy Lippard in her essay Cult of the Direct and Difficult, describes the cult of the new as the cult of the difficult, because of its rejection of 'easy communication'.

For this exhibition a group of contemporary artists have been invited to re-engage with their works held in the Government Art Collection.
