Art About Town – Can’t Buy Me Love

Art About Town this week is looking at an exhibition at UTS Art Gallery

can’t buy me love is a new exhibition by Amala Groom X Andrew Burrell, opening Friday 8th of April 2022. 

Amala Groom is a Wiradyuri conceptual artist whose practice is informed and driven by First Nations epistemologies, ontologies, and methodologies. Andrew Burrell (UTS, DAB, School of Design) is a practice-based researcher and educator who investigates the relationship between human subjectivity and virtual and augmented environments.

Presented through the lens of virtual reality, can’t buy me love is an immersive experience that purports to sell the audience the intangibility of spiritual enlightenment. It brings “reality” into a space that is “unreal” and where the item that is for sale is one that cannot be bought.
