Aleks Danko My Fellow Aus-tra-aliens
Aleks Danko My Fellow Aus-tra-aliens Exhibition Catalogue
This catalogue supports the exhibition MY FELLOW AUS-TRA-ALIENS, presenting artworks spanning nearly five decades of the long career of Victorian-based artist Aleks Danko, from his earliest exhibitions in the late 1960s through to his recent installations.
Born in Adelaide in 1950 to Ukrainian ©migr© parents, Danko began making art as a teenager in his familys garage. After studying at the South Australian School of Art he moved to Sydney in 1971, where he was a central figure in the citys conceptual art movement. There the young artist began his art practice as he would continue: mining the complexities of lived experience and pricking the collective social conscience, using sculpture, performance and process as his means.
